The news just keeps getting better for Aussie Mustang fans.

Just days after confirming its iconic Pony car will arrive Down Under in 2015, news has emerged the next Ford Mustang will be significantly smaller and lighter.

Tipped to be almost 15-inches shorter and 6-inches narrower, the 2015 Mustang is also expected to lose almost 200kg – a massive boon for both performance and economy.

The downsizing of the Mustang is said to mirror Ford’s aim to sell it in Europe, with the 2015 model expected to be unveiled at next year’s Detroit Auto Show in January.
