2015 Ford Mustang GT: Rear Seat Great for Dogs, Not Adult Humans
July 13, 2015
If you're an adult human, it's rather unlikely you'll be happy in the 2015 Ford Mustang's back seat. There's both minimal leg- and headroom for anyone taller than a child. It makes a Dodge Challenger seem like a Mercedes-Maybach. On the other hand, as I discovered this weekend, the little pair of rear seats is absolutely perfect for a little pair of dogs.
The deep bucket seat and the padded center hump are essentially dog beds perfectly sized for my small-medium dogs, Maggie and Nellie. They not only looked especially comfortable back there, but I also like that the bucket seat helps keep them in place. They always wear car harnesses, but flatter rear seats tend to have them slipping and sliding around.
So while the Mustang has one of the more uninhabitable seats for humans, it's actually one of the best for small dogs. The two-door body style isn't ideal for access however, which is why it falls short of Maggie's top dog-friendliness rating — it only gets 4 1/2 barks.*
