About the Ford Mustang
The Ford Mustang has been around since 1965 and is currently in its sixth generation. The sports car provides a range of strong engines and is known for its comfortable ride, luxurious cabin and sleek appearance. Until 2015, all Australian Mustangs were originally built as left-hand drives and later converted to right-hand steering. Shortly before the similar Ford Falcon went out of production in Australia in 2016, Ford started building right-handed Mustangs for the Australian market. Insurance companies determine the insurance cost for a Ford Mustang based on safety ratings, theft rates, replacement costs and overall damage susceptibility. Insurance rates can change based on a driver's history and location. Ford shoppers should grab quotes from several insurance companies to find the lowest premium possible before they commit. Ford Mustang shoppers should also do their research and see if they qualify for insurance discounts with each insurance company.
