2015 Ford Mustang GT: Nifty Kneehole

June 25, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang GT

It's the little things that count.

Sporty cars with sporty interiors often aren't built for comfort. One thing that constantly rubs me raw, literally, is an interior designer's general ignorance of where the driver's right knee lands when said driver is just cruising and not actively working the stop-and-go pedals.

So it was with great pleasure that I discovered at least one of the folks who worked on the interior design our 2015 Ford Mustang GT actually took anatomy and ergonomics  courses.

I'm referring to the center stack design, which actually makes allowances for the driver's right knee. Most people let it flop to the side a bit and rest on the front edge of the stack when not actively working the stop-and-go pedals. And I've found that most center stacks have relatively straight leading edges that can rub my knee raw on long trips.

But the lower portion of the Mustang's center stack is narrower than the upper, which flows out of the lower part with a nice, curving flare. Look at it head-on and it's kind of like a wineglass with a thick stem. The result is a comfortably padded inward curve on the lower part of the leading edge, creating a bit of extra space into which my knee fits perfectly.

After my recent 1,500-mile run in the GT, I left the car without a friction-frayed knee. Nice job, designers.
