Ford Galaxy rivals

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.
