The Ford Mustang remains the most popular sports car in the world, with 80,577 units reported sold worldwide in 2020.

Despite the decline in total year-on-year sales, the model – which is offered in coupe and convertible versions – increased its overall market share by 0.3%.

In 2019, 102,090 examples of the Mustang were sold, representing 14.8% of the international sports car market. In 2020, the drop to 80,577 was still enough to capture 15.1% of the segment worldwide.



For reference, the Hyundai Veloster – which was Australia’s second best-selling sports car last year – found just 639 buyers over the same period. The popular Mazda MX-5 convertible, meanwhile, only found 457 new owners.
