The extremely practical Ford Galaxy possesses a roomy interior, complete with a flexible seating system. This seven-seat MPV is also great to drive and is available in three trim levels: Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X.
Smart as well as versatile, the Galaxy boasts 17-inch 20-spoke alloy wheels (secured with locking nuts) and body-coloured door mirrors. The latter are power-operated, folding and heated, and feature integrated puddle lights and side indicators. Additional illumination includes courtesy-delay headlights, front fog lamps and daytime running lights. Black-finish roof rails offer additional load-bearing options, and a large cargo aperture and lack of load lip ensure that placing items into the car’s boot is straightforward.
The Galaxy provides plenty of passenger space, even in the third row. The engine can be quickly ignited thanks to Ford’s Power Starter button, and the vehicle comes with power-assisted steering. Other standard features include electrically operated front and rear windows (each with one-touch facility) Dual-zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (with rear-compartment air conditioning), a child-observation mirror and rear-row reading lights.
The third row of seats offer slide-and-recline functionality and can be folded to provide extra space and easy access to the rear. Ample stowage provision can be found throughout the cabin, including an overhead compartment, a large storage space between front-row seats and several 1.5-litre bottle holders. Seat-back tray tables are also included. A 300-litre boot can be expanded to as much as 2,339 litres.
A 1.5-litre 158bhp petrol engine is capable of up to 43.5mpg and a 149g/km CO2 figure. Alternatively, a 2.0-litre 118bhp (or 148bhp) diesel unit returns as much as 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 129g/km. Each option is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and Auto Start-Stop is included as standard.
Six-speed automatic transmission comes with a 2.0-litre 237bhp diesel engine, which is available with Titanium trims and above
An eight-speaker sound system includes DAB radio, an FM/AM radio and a CD player. USB, AUX and SD connectivity, Ford SYNC and a 2.8-inch touchscreen display are also featured as standard.
Awarded Euro NCAP’s full five-star rating, the Galaxy features standard driver aids such as Anti-lock Braking System, Curve Control and Roll Stability Control. Passive safety elements include seatbelt reminders, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters and multiple airbags.
The vehicle is secured with remote central locking and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm.
