Ford Galaxy Review

The Ford Galaxy is a popular choice for large families, given its reputation as an able people carrier. It delivers such a promise in its spacious, practical, and car-like drive. Families won’t have any trouble fitting everyone in its seven independent seats, and other guests in the five seats that can folded out flat. Plus enough power is delivered throughout any action packed trip via its economical diesels and other engines in its range. The Galaxy also comes out as the more practical people carrier against the S-Max, despite its boxy façade. Looks aside, all families are really after is the large space available for a number of passengers.

Pros

The Galaxy’s engine range includes a 2.3-litre at 161bhp and 2.0-litre at 145bhp petrol. Both these units are quiet and smooth, providing a good performance on the road. The diesel engine, however, is more practical for those that need to carry a large number of passengers on a daily basis. Diesel unit options are the 1.8 TdCi at either 100bhp or 125bhp. Economy and emissions are pretty much the same on both engines, but the more powerful units boast of easier overtaking and enhanced pulling power. The more advanced unit would be the 2.0 TDci at 140bhp and an automatic gearbox as its partner. But the best engine among the range is the 2.2 TDCi at 175bhp, capable of arriving at a 62mph sprint after 9.1 seconds.

Given the Galaxy’s tall roofline and five metres length, the vehicle delivers a handling unlike other people carriers. Expect an experience similar to a car despite its size, assuring you responsive steering and composure along each corner. Body roll is kept at a minimum via stiff suspension. Well weighted steering also improves the experience, especially at higher speeds. But the steering isn’t too heavy that you lightly tread through tight manoevres.

Comfort is not a problem in the Galaxy thanks to its height, leaving enough headroom and legroom all throughout. Although the rear seats’ leg and headroom is only recommended for children when it comes to long journeys. Comfort levels are limited at times, but made up for in the firm ride. Thicker windscreens keep road and wind noise muted in the cabin, maintaining a quiet ride even when going at the faster speeds. Seats can readily be adjusted by sliding the third row backwards and forwards, or for more occupant comfort.

Cons

Boot space is limited as an effect of its seven seats: 308 litres. Don’t expect to fit all seven individuals’ luggage out back. But the space can be expanded to 435 litres after dropped the two additional seats. Seats can also be readily folded down via the Fold Flat System of Ford.

The cabin layout is neat and the silver centre console is finished off with finesse. Adjustment can easily be made in the driver’s seat and steering wheel. A sporty feel is almost delivered in the gear level’s high up position. If you want a brighter interior, the models from 2010 onwards have LED interiors. But we’re not too sure about the odd handbrake handle that looks like something off an aircraft.

Ford Galaxy

                Ford Motor Company released a new multi purpose vehicle or MPV in the year 1995 which was named Ford Galaxy. This is a five door MPV that has a layout of a front engine and a front wheel drive.

                The first generation Galaxy was produced in the years 1995 until 2000 and was assembled in Palmela, Portugal at the AutoEuropa plant. This version, also called MK1, was created as a joint product of the Volkswagen Group and Ford Motor Company. This, however, was rated as the least satisfying car in the United Kingdom by the Top Gear survey in the year 1999.

                MKII or the second generation version of the Galaxy was a product of its reinvention in the year 2000. This version was produced until 2006 and was still assembled in Palmela, Portugal. The transmission of this car is available in 6-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, and 5-speed automatic. The redesign of the car involved a front end of Ford and an invigorated interior.

                By the year 2006. Ford Motor Company released the MKIII or the third generation Ford Galaxy which was first displayed at the Geneva Motor Show. This generation was assembled at Genk, Belgium and has totally deviated from the Volkswagen Group design.
