Galaxy drivers get an elevated driving position with a great all-round view, which is definitely welcome when parking. However, the size and angle of the windscreen pillar can block your view through right-hand bends.
The driving position is superb and drivers of all shapes and sizes should be well catered for by numerous seat and steering wheel adjustments. The front seats are comfortable, but would benefit from more side support to hold you more firmly in corners. Interior quality is good for the most part, with plenty of soft-touch plastics, but the Sharan and Alhambra have the edge on fit and finish.
The dashboard is functional and there are surprisingly few buttons. Many of the functions are taken care of by Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system and voice commands. The system isn’t perfect, but the menus are easy enough to navigate and it has a decent 8.0in high-definition touchscreen.
