Roominess is one of the main draws of the cabin of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, especially for those travelling in the second row, where the car offers plenty of head room and leg room for taller adults even with the optional panoramic roof fitted.
The ambience is pleasant, with some quite appealing textiles on its upper dashboard and door panels. The cabin could do with some extra performance flourish, though – perhaps some colourful accents or ‘GT’ detailing.
There are some eye-catching features but nothing that looks like chrome metal actually ends up feeling like it. Only when you interrogate the fixtures and fittings might you realise that you’ve actually got Ford Focus seats and a rebadged Focus steering wheel, as well as Focus parts-bin column stalks and other controls. They might pass muster on a £45k Ford Mustang Mach-E RWD, but they struggle to do so on something costing almost £70,000.
The driving position is straight and fairly comfortable if lacking some adjustability. Ford’s GT Performance seats have decent lateral support but leave your lower body neglected.
A downsized digital instrument screen ahead of the driver can easily be seen through the orbit of the steering wheel but conveys only a limited selection of information and isn’t as configurable in its layout as some drivers might like.
