Which used Ford Galaxy MPV should I buy?
The 148bhp 2.0-litre TDCi diesel is the popular choice and represents a good blend of performance and efficiency for a reasonable price. The 178bhp and later 187bhp versions of this diesel are also good choices because CO2 emissions and fuel consumption figures are similar to those of the less powerful model version. Other diesel options include a 2.0-litre 118bhp engine that'll be too slow, and a 207bhp diesel, which is rare and too expensive to recommend.
Petrol options consist of a 158bhp 1.5-litre petrol and a range-topping 237bhp 2.0-litre engine. All miss out on the low-down shove of the diesel variants. The standard six-speed manual gearbox is precise and slick, and the optional six-speed automatic gearbox flits between gears serenely and reacts quickly when you ask it to.
