How is the design of Ford Mustang
In 1994, the Ford Mustang underwent a total overhaul in terms of its design, and featured a “new edge” body style, which was really an incorporation of several components of previous generation of the Ford Mustang. Sharper contours, larger wheel arches and puckers in its bodywork are some of the things which make the fourth generation a lot different from the previous generations. Interior design however remained quite similar with the previous generations with a few changes as the years went by. The fifth generation of the Ford Mustang has a similar body structure as that of the fourth generation with a different front end design, and other exterior redesign features which are evident as you observe the vehicle a little closer. On the interior, the fifth generation Ford Mustang is designed to have a near luxurious finish, but the vehicle still comes off as a brute. Accessories present are what would be found in any new generation Ford vehicle, such as a reverse camera, Bluetooth connectivity and more.
What are the best features of the Ford Mustang?

Surviving increasing fuel prices, recessions and a near global meltdown, the appreciation people have for the Ford Mustang have made it a survivor and one of the bestselling pony car brands all over the world.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Ford Mustang in Nigeria
Until recently, not many Ford Mustang cars could be found on Nigerian roads. Now, as you drive through some city and highway routes, you would be sure to see a few Ford Mustangs around. Authorized dealers of Ford vehicles in Nigeria such as Coscharis Motors make the Ford Mustang available to Nigerians. Also, the independent importers who deal in used units of ford Mustangs would be sure to make them available at cheaper prices. Purchasing a tokunbo (foreign used) or Registered (Nig) used Ford Mustang is definitely cheaper than buying a brand new one, but one has to be careful not to buy a unit which has series of faults. This is why we advise our readers to have a trusted automobile mechanic accompany them when going to inspect a used vehicle for sale.
The Best Ford Mustang year to Buy
An all new Ford Mustang which began sales in November 2014 would be the best Ford Mustang to purchase. It features improvements on every aspect of the vehicle and assures driver and passenger a safe and fun ride. However, if you are looking for a classic feel, look towards purchasing the 1964 Ford Mustang, as it was the first generation produced and if in good condition will be one of the best cars you ever owned.
