The Ford Mustang EcoBoost may not be as powerful as its V8 cousins, yet it carries forth the classic Mustang legacy in a symbiotic manner. It has been the car to go for if you want the all-American sports car fun on weekends but still want to show up for work on Monday without having a tuneup. The Chevy and Challenger may have more attitude, but the Mustang is the most well-rounded: a powerful engine, superb handling, and plenty of practicality to go around. No wonder that, even after five decades, it is still the most popular muscle car in the United States.

Taking on competition against the Mustang Ecoboost Convertible is the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible which is one of its truest competitors. Two Germans take on against these muscle cars as well on grounds of similar performance. The Mercedes C300 Cabriolet and the BMW 2 series convertible offer better build quality and more premium interiors. Facing such a diverse range of competition, it is yet to be seen if the Mustang still carries its charm.

Overall Rating

The Mustang Ecoboost Convertible is powered by a 2.3L, Turbocharged 4-cylinder Ecoboost engine producing 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional 10-speed automatic gearbox. While that's quite a respectable power from a 2.3L, 4-cylinder engine, the best thing about the Mustang Ecoboost Convertible is that it costs a very reasonable $31,180. That's a huge bargain for a convertible muscle car.

Being a convertible doesn't mean a high power output will solve all your problems. Driving dynamics come into play as well. Even with its prowess, the Mustang Convertible faces some serious competition from muscle car convertibles like the Chevy Camaro. Even the Germans join the fray of its rivals. Both the BMW and Mercedes-Benz give the Mustang a great challenge for its interior quality and performance.

Final Verdict

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Features


The Ford Mustang Ecoboost convertible comes in two trims, just like the coupe: the base version and the Premium version. Both trims are the same mechanically in that they are powered by the same engine and gearbox. The Premium trim gets you more features onboard. These are just the base versions of the Mustang Convertible. You can have the Mustang GT with a V8 engine as a convertible as well.

We Recommend

The base version falls a little short of creature comforts. We’d recommend the Ecoboost Premium version as that comes decently well packed with quite some standard equipment. Also if you are buying a Mustang, you are surely buying it for performance which is why the Ecoboost Performance Package is a worthy upgrade.

The package gets you summer tires, performance-oriented suspension, upgraded radiator, larger brakes, and a lot more performance upgrades for just $2,500 When you have opted for the performance package, you can also checkboxes for the Magneride Suspension. However, if you are configuring your car tastefully, the prices escalate quite quickly.

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Engine and Performance


"Enter the Mustang EcoBoost Convertible, which lacks the legendary grunt and theatrics of the V8 version, but is still enjoyable to drive and be seen in ... if not heard." -Which Car

Engine and Transmission

The 2.3L, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the Mustang produces 310 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 350 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 rpm. While those are great numbers for a 2.3L, 4 cylinder engine and the Mustang indeed is quite fast, there are a few shortcomings with this engine. It's a high revving motor and it is fun only when you are pushing it hard.

The point of a smaller engine is that it should be easy to drive and quite livable with even in the city. Unfortunately, the engine is unresponsive and jerky at lower rpm ranges. It unleashes itself out on a highway which is when it's fast and extremely fun. Also, we miss the burbling sound of a V8 engine as honestly, it does not sound all that great.

The engine is mated to a six-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automatic. Both the gearboxes are pretty good indeed. The manual has short throws and slots into gears easily and the clutch is easy too. The 10-speed automatic is smooth and quick when left in auto mode but there is quite some delay in the manual mode when tapping at the paddles. Also, it seems somewhat confused when you suddenly press down on the throttle pedal as to which gear to choose.

When compared to its rivals, the Mustang Ecoboost has the most powerful engine. All cars have a 4-cylinder motor of 2.0L displacement and its uniform on that front. The Ford and the Chevy come with 6-speed manuals whereas the Mercedes has a 9-speed automatic and the BMW has an 8-speed automatic.


Even though the Ecoboost is not the most powerful Mustang on sale, it still offers a decent amount of performance. The 2.3 liters 4 cylinder power plant manages to launch the Mustang from a standstill to 60MPH in 5 seconds. The vehicle subsequently takes 13 seconds to cross the quarter-mile mark.

The Mustang had the most powerful engine and it is no surprise that it is the fastest to sprint to 60 mph in just 5.0 seconds which is great from a 4-cylinder engine. The BMW and the Chevy take 5.3 and 5.4 seconds to reach 60MPH respectively. The Mercedes is the slowest to 60 mph but that's all right as it does not even intend to be a fast, sporty car. The BMW 2 Series takes 12.7 seconds to cover the quarter-mile which makes it the fastest in this bunch. This can be attributed to its quick gearbox. 

Ride and Handling

In its standard configuration, the Mustang Ecoboost Convertible has a fairly good balance between good ride quality and good body control. It soaks up most bumps and potholes quite well. It also remains quite well composed around the corners and you could be playful with this car. Chopping off the roof certainly compromises on some structural rigidity but it's not much noticeable. Cabin turbulence has been well managed but with the soft top up, some noises do manage to filter in.

However, when you opt for the performance package which brings in a lot of performance upgrades, the ride becomes quite unnecessarily stiff even in the comfort mode. The ride is bumpy for most times and really not enjoyable for daily driving. Of course, it's highly rewarding when you have found that twisty mountain road as it remains extremely planted even when pushing hard out of a corner.

The shortcomings of the performance suspension still have a solution. Opt for the Magneride suspension and it is constantly monitoring the road ahead of you and your driving style as well through several sensors to adjust the suspension accordingly. That is when the ride quality becomes livable with again. However, you have to pay further for this is quite displeasing.

The steering is pretty good too. It remains light and easy at low speeds and weighs up quite adequately as you pick up the pace. There is a good amount of feedback from the front wheels and you can actually tell how much grip your front tires have. It's precise and responsive and it will go exactly where you want it to go. The effort needed to steer the car at high speeds around a corner is also very rewarding.


The Ford Mustang takes 106 ft to come to a dead stop from 60 mph which is quite respectable in this class. In fact, it has the best braking distance in the segment. The pedal feel is adequately weighted and the car remains stable even under hard braking.

When it comes to performance cars, braking as important as acceleration. The 12.6-inch discs all around manage to get the Mustang to a standstill from 60MPH in a mere 106 feet. The Mercedes C300 takes the longest to stop which can be blamed on the weight of the car. 

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Fuel Economy


In terms of fuel economy, one cannot expect a lot from a performance-oriented vehicle. Still, the 2020 Ford Mustang manages 20 miles to the gallon in the city and 28 MPG out on the highways. These are pretty impressive numbers considering the performance.

The Mustang Ecoboost has a pretty respectable fuel economy in the class and is at par with its competitors. It's not the best as that title goes to the German, of course. The Mustang returns 23 miles to the gallon combined which is similar to the Chevrolet Camaro. The Mercedes returns 24 miles to the gallon and the BMW has the best fuel economy of 27 miles to the gallon.

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Interior


"The standard leather seats feel plush, but have narrow cushions, which is surprising considering the size of the average American derriere." -Which Car

Seating and Comfort

Just like the exteriors, the interiors are characterized by strong lines and bold surfaces. The interior design is sporty but there are quite a few cheap plastics which is a letdown in such a car. The AC vents sit on top of the dashboard with the oil pressure gauge and fuel filler gauge in the center with the performance package. The 8-inch infotainment screen sits below it followed by the climate controls and toggle switches for various vehicle settings.

2019 ford mustang cockpit area

The toggle switches feel really cool to use. The gear selector is a nice chunky one and feels good to operate. On the passenger side, the dashboard has a 'Mustang' badge on a sculpted surface and you can trim your interiors with aluminum or carbon fiber. The optional 12-inch digital instrument cluster looks quite cool and is worth the upgrade. Overall, it's a good place to be. Mustangs have not always had the best interiors but they come a long way now.

There is however one fly in the ointment and that is the soft-top folding roof is not entirely automated. You have manually unlatch or latch a lever on the windshield and then the roof folds itself down or folds up again. Its rivals offer fully automatic roof mechanisms.

The Mustang does not have the most spacious interiors. It's still a pretty comfortable cabin. The seats are nice and supportive and they hold you well with good bolstering. They come wrapped in leather and can also be heated. The rear seats are very cramped and are quite small even for children. It strictly remains a two-seater.

Second (Head/Shoulder/Leg) (In.)





All the vehicles in this group are convertibles and the headroom doesn't really matter as long as its sunny outside. On the rainy and gloomy days when you have to close the roof, the BMW offers the most headroom to the front passengers. At the same time, that roof also makes the Merc one of the most cramped places to be for rear-seat passengers. 

Infotainment System

The infotainment system is pretty easy to use and responses to touch quite adequately. It's still not the most advanced in the world as the Germans are way ahead in terms of technology and offer much more than you could ask for. Also, for something in 2020, we would have liked better graphics on the central screen. The graphics on the digital instrument cluster are still better. There is smartphone integration as well if Ford's Sync3 system is not to your taste. Still, it will get most things done quite well. What adds to the experience is the digital driver's display. It is a paid option but it displays a ton of information and is highly customizable.

Cargo Volume

If you’re planning a weekend excursion while taking your EcoBoost Mustang out of town, you may want to pack lighter than what you normally would. With a 11.4 cubic-feet trunk, the Mustang can only hold so much after you put in a few backpacks. The BMW 2 Series is a much better companion, both in case of luggage and passenger space. Still, the Mustang does better than the Camaro, that boasts a paltry 7.3 cubic feet in the trunk. Moreover, the trunk on the Mustang can be remotely operated and is easy to load in stuff thanks to its wide berth.

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Exterior


"The Ford Mustang feels big to drive mainly because of its 1.93m girth that's widest over the rear wheels. Its 4.79m length is a little less than most large sedans though, which makes it easy to fit into parallel parking spaces." -Which Car

Design and Styling

The Ford Mustang Ecoboost Convertible is certainly a head-turner. It's probably one of the best-looking muscle cars that you can buy. This year, the bonnet has been made to swoop further into the large grille with the pony sitting in the middle to give it an aggressive stance and also make it aerodynamic. The headlamps are sleek and full LED. The bumper has triangular air intakes along with LED fog lamps and also a subtle bumper lip. The front is bold and if you have a keen eye, you'd notice the differences from the GT.

2020 Ford Mustang basic Convertible

The sides are flanked by two sharp lines that cut out the muscle of the car and make it really pronounced. With the roof gone, we miss the beautiful sloping roofline but it still maintains a pretty good silhouette with the soft-top up. The standard 18-inch wheels look good enough but you can, of course, opt for larger ones to give it an even sportier look. At the rear, the Pony badge sits in the middle flanked by the signature sequential LED tail lamps on the two sides. The rear is otherwise typically Mustang finished off with dual exhaust pipes.

Dimensions and Weight

When it comes to performance-oriented cars, exterior dimensions do matter a lot. The size and weight of a vehicle directly affect the handling. By no means is the Mustang small. It weighs in over 3500 lbs. The folding roof mechanism only adds to the weight of the vehicle.

The Mustang GT is certainly a large car, in fact, the longest in the competition here. It is also the widest car here. Even though it has the length, it still does not have the longest wheelbase as that title goes to Mercedes. This is the reason why the Merc offers the most legroom to the rear seat passengers.

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Safety


Going by the number of safety features that Ford has loaded into this car, we can tell you that it's going to be a pretty safe place to be in. The Convertible has only gone through partial tests but has claimed the highest possible scores from both the NHTSA and IIHS. The frame has been highly commended for its strength and ability to absorb the majority of impact during a collision.

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Competition


Ford Mustang Ecoboost Convertible vs Mercedes Benz C300 Cabriolet

The Mustang is a very different car from the C300 Cabriolet. The Mercedes is a laid back car that gives you loads of luxury, technology, grace, and poise. These are words you wouldn't associate with the Mustang at all. It's not as intimidating as the Mustang but it lets you enjoy drop-top motoring like no other in this class.

Mercedes Benz C300 Cabriolet

The Mercedes C300 cabriolet isn't any slouch though. It's well-engineered, very comfortable, refined and handles decently too. The Mustang has much more drama though and makes a statement every single time. However, Mercedes is considerably more expensive than the Mustang. If you are willing to pay that premium for all the luxury and comfort, it's well worth it. If not, the Mustang should meet all your other needs.

Ford Mustang Ecoboost Convertible vs BMW 2 Series 230i

The Beemer might be less on power but it certainly is not short of any performance. It's everything you would expect a German car to be and that brings the difference. It's extremely fun to drive and yet can be adapted to be a very comfortable car. It has much better technology than any of the American cars and the interiors are also better than the Mustang.

BMW 2 Series 230i

It may not look so imposing as the Mustang but it still looks pretty decent like all BMWs. It does not have the numbers of the Mustang but the BMW is not about numbers on paper but a real-world smile on your face. However, the price which it is offered for kills the deal. It's the most expensive car and for that reason alone, the Mustang makes for a much better buy.

Ford Mustang Ecoboost Convertible vs Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro is a great daily driver and could still make you look very cool. It does not have quite the performance of the Mustang or the Dodge but it's certainly not far behind. It fact, it seems capable of more than what it is and sounds like you wouldn't expect a 4-cylinder engine to sound. The interiors are very stylish but the infotainment system might be a little cumbersome to use.

Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro does not have the best ride quality. On the upside, it has been rewarded with good handling just like the Mustang. There's no beating the looks of the Camaro though. It's very busy but you just can't ignore it. Boiling down to a choice between these cars is again about your preferences. If you want a great daily driver with good performance and stunning looks, it's the Camaro. If performance is your priority, it's the Mustang any day.

2020 Ford Mustang Convertible Final Verdict


The Mustang Ecoboost Convertible is not what you expect it to be. Being a 2.3L, 4-cylinder, you'd expect it to be an easy car to drive and one that is a great daily driver also packing some performance for your adventures. It is not a good daily driver but one that does perform well and really needs to be pushed hard. However, by the time it does perform well, you have already specked it up pretty well and the price has escalated quite a bit. In full spec, the Mustang Ecoboost Convertible could be more expensive than a Mustang GT Premium Convertible.

And if performance is all that this car has to offer, then it makes much more sense to save a little more and buy the Mustang GT Premium Convertible with a V8 engine, much more performance and if you have some money left, you can spec it up even further to make yourself a really capable muscle car.
