Which used Ford Galaxy MPV should I buy?

The 2.0-litre TDCi 150, the 148bhp diesel, is the popular choice because it represents a good blend of performance and efficiency for a reasonable price. It offers better fuel consumption and emissions than the equivalent diesels in the Seat Alhambra and VW Sharan, and similar performance.

The 178bhp version of this diesel is another good engine and actually offers the same CO2 emissions and fuel consumption as the 148bhp version, but with a bit more punch. It’s got plenty of low-down shove from 1500rpm, and it’ll continue pulling all the way to 4000rpm. It’s smooth, too. Other diesel options include a 2.0-litre 118bhp engine and a 207bhp diesel, which is too expensive to recommend.

Petrol options consist of a 1.5-litre 158bhp unit, which lacks the shove of the diesel variants, and a range-topping 237bhp 2.0-litre engine, but like the range-topping diesel there’s not much of a financial case for it, even used. 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.

Ford has included a good amount of standard equipment, too. We’d look for entry-level Zetec trim, which comes with 17in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, climate control and Ford’s 8.0in touchscreen system with Bluetooth and DAB radio all as standard. There’s not much point in searching for Titanium or Titanium X trims, unless they’re the same price as the equivalent lower trims, car for car. Look for emergency city braking, though; it’s disappointing this isn’t standard in such a family-oriented vehicle. Further safety and security features include six airbags, stability controls and alarm and immobiliser. A lane-keeping assist is standard from Titanium trim or optional on Zetec models.
