3.6 out of 5

The Ford Galaxy's spacious interior means that everyone should be able to get comfortable. Plenty of adjustment in both the driver’s seat and steering wheel means drivers of all sizes can easily find their ideal setup. The Galaxy’s raised driving position gives you a clear view of the road ahead, and all models come with front and rear parking sensors that make it easy to park in tight spaces.

Ford is well versed in building cars that are resistant to body lean in corners, but also extremely comfortable on the UK’s poorly surfaced roads. That knowledge is evident in the setup of the Galaxy.

Ford Galaxy dashboard

Climb aboard the Ford Galaxy and you’ll be surprised to find quite a sporty dashboard with three centrally mounted circular air vents and a handbrake that looks like the throttle stick from an airliner. While it doesn’t have the classy appearance of the Volkswagen Sharan, the Galaxy gets pretty close and most of the interior is made from high-quality, soft-touch plastics.

Ford Galaxy equipment

Whichever Ford Galaxy you choose, it’ll be well equipped. Even the basic Zetec model comes with a Bluetooth phone connection, front and rear parking sensors, fold-down trays on the back of the front seats, plus electric windows all round. We think the mid-range Titanium model is the one to go for, as it has handy overhead storage cubbies, cruise control, as well as automatic headlights and wipers. The top-of-the-range Titanium X model boasts luxury features such as a panoramic sunroof and leather upholstery.

Ford Galaxy options

Ford offers a decent range of options that are well priced. Active cruise control is a box worth ticking. It costs £800 and will make long motorway cruises significantly less tiring. The system lets the Galaxy automatically match the speed of the car in front in order to maintain a safe distance, before returning to a pre-set cruising speed when the road is clear. Other options include powerful bi-xenon headlights (£800), a blind-spot warning system (£400) and keyless entry (£425).
