Functional and luxuriously comfortable, the Ford Galaxy is the ideal vehicle for Motability customers who want plenty of space without sacrificing style. It is also highly refined, with a superior ride and minimal road and engine noise in the cabin. Buyers of the Ford Galaxy have a choice of Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X trim levels.
The Ford Galaxy is a large car and its stately exterior gives it a commanding road presence. The front end is sharply styled, with chrome detailing to the front grille. All models offer 17-inch alloy wheels, along with front and rear parking sensors to make the Galaxy easy to manoeuvre in tight spots. The Titanium trim adds LED daytime running lights to help you be seen by other drivers, automatic front headlights and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. Opt for the range-topping Titanium X model for convenience features such as a power tailgate and a rear-view camera.
The upmarket interior has space for seven people to travel comfortably and the seating configuration is highly versatile. The driver-focused cockpit makes it intuitive to operate the ergonomic controls, and the brushed aluminium trim gives the Galaxy a fresh, contemporary feel. When all seven seats are in place there is a 300-litre boot. You can fold the five rear seats electrically at the touch of a button to get 2,339 litres of space – easily enough to accommodate any scooter or wheelchair.
The Zetec trim comes with Ford SYNC 2 with voice control functionality, Bluetooth® connectivity and DAB radio, all of which is controlled via an eight-inch touchscreen. You can also enjoy the comforts of dual-zone air conditioning and supportive sports seats. The Titanium model adds a satellite navigation system as standard, and the range-topping Titanium X boasts a panoramic opening roof and heated, leather-clad seats.
You can choose between two turbo charged EcoBoost petrol engines and a 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine with four different power output options. The 2.0-litre EcoBoost unit and the highest-powered TDCi unit offer very quick performance, with acceleration from zero to 60mph in less than nine seconds. The direct steering and supple ride combine to deliver a satisfying and comfortable driving experience.
Opt for the lowest-powered version of the 2.0-litre TDCi engine for the lowest running costs. This engine develops 119bhp, returning up to 56.5mpg and emitting just 129g/km of CO2, which is impressive for such a large car.
The Ford Galaxy is an extremely safe car and achieved a full five-star rating in Euro NCAP crash testing. It is fitted with plenty of advanced safety technology, including an intelligent speed limiter which reads and reacts to traffic signs, ensuring you never break the speed limit. Adaptive cruise control and a lane-keeping aid are also fitted as standard on Titanium and Titanium X models.
