The Ford Galaxy is a spacious and practical MPV with versatile seats to make it a great family choice. It handles well too, despite its size with a fun and enjoyable driving experience.
There's a wide range of Ford diesel and petrol engines with the diesels offering more power and efficiency. These are also the best choice for those who travel lots of miles with a full complement of people on board. Among the engines, the 1.5 litre EcoBoost petrol engine with turbocharger should return 43mpg with 149g/km of emissions. The 2.0 litre TDI will return 51mpg with emissions of 144g/km.
Among the options for the Galaxy is four-wheel-drive and this will affect the fuel economy while offering better grip. Opting for the very good automatic gearbox will also see economy drop. However, the car is quiet and stable when driven at speed; it makes for an excellent motorway cruiser.
Despite its size, the Ford Galaxy is a great car to drive, it's fun with a nice balance and well weighted steering. The suspension also delivers a comfortable ride.
Not everyone wants seven seats, and the Galaxy offers a versatile combination and the seats can be folded flat into the floor of the boot when not needed. This means there's lots of space on board should large items need to be carried anywhere.
There's a lot of equipment fitted as standard including DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, climate control, alloy wheels and MP3 player connectivity. Other trims come with cruise control, speed limiter, satnav, lane keeping assist and automatic wipers and headlights. Standard safety equipment includes electronic stability and traction control, seven airbags and seat belt reminder alarms.
Essentially, the Ford Galaxy is an excellent choice in the MPV sector and as a people carrier it's hard to fault. With seven seats, plenty of space in the cabin, lots of equipment and a solid build, the vehicle offers a great choice for families.
