What's the used Ford Galaxy like?
Like its smaller sibling, the Ford S-Max, the Galaxy is a seven-seat MPV, but with a bit more room.
Unlike the previous Galaxy ('01-'06), which was mechanically identical to the Seat Alhambra and Volkswagen Sharan, this is an all-new vehicle unique to Ford.
The Galaxy isn't as good to drive as the S-Max, but that's mainly down to its softer suspension and size.
That doesn't mean it drives badly, though, because it's composed over bumps and handles corners well. There's some wind noise at speed, but tyre noise isn't really noticeable.
There's plenty of leg and headroom for all passengers - even those using the rearmost seats. All five rear seats fold flat into the floor when not needed, creating a van-rivalling space to transport bulky items.
With all seats in place, the boot is big enough for a few reasonably sized bags.
