Featuring 7 ergonomic seats for maximum comfort. A versatile interior for improved luggage space. And a sophisticated FordPass Connect modem to keep you connected on every drive.

With a car full of young children, it is easy to get a bit flustered. With the FordPass app on your phone, drivers can check whether they remembered to lock the doors of the Galaxy, and then lock or unlock them remotely. And seeing your van’s location on a map, means you don’t have to worry about forgetting where you parked when in unfamiliar locations.
There are two models in the Galaxy range – the Galaxy Zetec and the slightly more expensive Galaxy Titanium. The Galaxy’s MPV rivals include Ford's own S-MAX, which is a little smaller; the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer, Renault Grand Scenic, SEAT Alhambra and VW Sharan.
In terms of engine options, Ford offers a good range - 2.0 TDCi diesel engines available with four different power outputs, and a 1.5 EcoBoost petrol engine. A four-wheel-drive option is also available, so there's should be a vehicle within the range to suit most needs.
The Ford Galaxy 2.0L EcoBlue Zetec 150PS offers the best fuel consumption – providing 57 miles to the gallon and CO2 emissions of 160 – this compares to the least fuel efficient model, the Galaxy 2.0L EcoBlue Titanium 190PS AWD Auto which delivers 48 miles to the gallon with CO2 emissions of 184.
The Galaxy was last rated by Euro NCAP back in 2015 when it received a five-star rating. It’s safety score
The insurance you pay on a Ford Galaxy can vary widely as models range from the cheapest to insure in group 17 to the most expensive to insure in group 31. The Association of British Insurers and Lloyd’s of London set your car’s insurance group from 1 to 50. In theory, the higher the insurance group, the greater your insurance premium will be.
In this instance a Zetec model in the 17 group would typically have lower premiums; than a Galaxy Titanium X in the 31 group.
