The Ford Galaxy is a very popular people carrier and it's not hard to see why. Practical, spacious and car-like to drive it comes with a great range of engines including some very economical diesels.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The Ford Galaxy is a very popular people carrier and it's not hard to see why. Practical, spacious and car-like to drive it comes with a great range of engines including some very economical diesels. All models come with seven independent seats and the rear five easily fold flat to create a huge load space while there are more than 30 stowage compartments on board. Ford actually has two large people carriers in its range - the S-MAX and the Galaxy. They're based on the same underpinnings, but the Galaxy is the more practical of the two. Unfortunately it looks quite boxy as a result, but it does mean there's plenty of space for all passengers. Ford revised the Galaxy in 2010 with chrome grille bars and LED rear lights. A new petrol and diesel engine were also introduced, along with Ford’s Powershift double-clutch gearbox.

What owners say...

 The size is amazing and flexibility of seating great too. I have had two Toyota Landcruisers before and this is drives beautifully and is more spacious than them. It also feels prestigious although...

 The way in which the five rear seats fold into the floor. Before this car we had the previous model Galaxy from which seats needed to be removed which was difficult and required forward planning.
