Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Browsing the Galaxy price list will show that the 2.0 EcoBlue 150 in entry-level Zetec trim, which is our pick, costs more than versions of the Citröen Grand C4 Spacetourer, about the same as a Volkswagen Sharan, but much less than a Mercedes V-Class, Peugeot Traveller and Volkswagen Caravelle.
Ford's PCP offers can bring competitive monthly payments, but resale values aren't terrific. That's true for the Sharan and Grand C4 Spacetourer, too, but the V-Class and Caravelle retain a lot more value after three years. CO2 emissions for the EcoBlue 150 diesel engine are competitive and will keep benefit-in-kind company car tax reasonable. The EcoBlue 190 is rather more polluting and pricier, so we'd avoid it.
