CARS.COM — The 2015 Ford Mustang is one of the many performance cars that offer Recaro-branded, highly bolstered, track-ready front racing seats as a factory option. Recaro is well known in the automotive world as a manufacturer of high-performance seats for racing applications, though it also has a large repertoire of seating products. You may have sat in a Recaro seat and never known it, perhaps on a commercial airliner.

The Mustang’s Recaros are a $1,595 option on the V-8-powered GT and turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost trim levels. They’re covered in cloth on base models and leather in the Premium trim levels with no change in price for the leather.
Over the summer, Cars.com’s test fleet included a pair of Mustang GT and EcoBoost coupes with the Recaro seats, plus a Mustang EcoBoost Premium convertible with non-Recaro leather seats. Sitting in both gave us a good opportunity to look at the pros and cons of the optional Recaro Mustang seats.
