Overall verdict

"Judged on being a seven-seater, the Ford Galaxy would get close to top marks. The flexible seating arrangement is superb, while there’s enough space for seven adults to sit in comfort. It’s also reasonably good to drive, with enough toys to make life as a ‘mum or dad taxi driver’ a more pleasurable experience."

Ford Focus Estate Driving

Ford has honed the Galaxy to within an inch of perfection. The seven-seat MPV might not be the most fashionable or desirable vehicle on the planet, but if you need a car like this, the Galaxy is arguably the best of the breed.


Launched in 2015, and given a facelift in 2019, the Ford Galaxy majors on space, practicality and flexibility, with seating for seven adults. This gives it the edge over the raft of ‘5+2’ MPVs and SUVs on sale in 2020.


Key to its appeal is a flexible seating arrangement, which provides up to 2339 litres of space if you don’t require the five rear seats. Even in seven-seat mode, there’s a generous 300 litres of luggage room available, with 1301 litres on offer in five-seat mode. Throw into the mix a plethora of storage bins, pockets and cubbies, and you’ve got the makings of one of the most practical cars you can buy.


It’s also well-equipped, with the entry-level Zetec trim packed with lots of standard equipment. Titanium trim adds a few more luxuries, albeit for a higher price. The Galaxy might look expensive on paper, but when you consider the standard kit and practicality on offer, it begins to make more sense.


Because it’s based on the Ford Mondeo, the Galaxy is actually pretty good to drive. The smaller S-Max MPV remains the dynamic hero, but the Galaxy offers a comfortable ride, sharp steering and a surprising lack of body-roll when cornering. The S-Max is more fun to drive, but the gap isn’t as wide as the brochures might lead you to believe.


It’s also remarkably refined, with very little wind and road noise, even on the motorway. Cover the badge on the steering wheel and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were driving something built by a premium manufacturer. It really is that good.


What’s the catch? Well, the styling is bordering on frumpy, although the facelift of 2019 has given the Galaxy a sharper look. It also has a questionable image – your friends and family will think you’ve started an airport taxi business.


Beyond that, we’re starting to struggle. The cabin space is excellent, it’s quiet and comfortable on the move, and it comes loaded with a long list of standard kit. It’s almost completely devoid of flair and imagination, but the Galaxy is a car you buy with your head and not your heart.


Early examples of the Galaxy are cheap, but we’d recommend buying a more recent model. An update in 2018 ushered in an improved range of engines and transmissions, while the 2019 facelift improved the overall package.


If you’re after a proper seven-seater, the Ford Galaxy remains one of the most convincing cars you can buy. Taxi!

Is the Ford Galaxy right for you?

Ford didn’t invent the MPV, but the Galaxy has become the brand generic for the seven-seater. Unlike some rival people carriers, the Galaxy offers seating for seven adults, which makes it a favourite in the private hire and taxi sectors.


Put simply, it offers the kind of space, practicality and flexibility you won’t find in a seven-seat SUV, so it’s the MPV to choose if your family is growing up fast. You won’t win any style points on the school run, but that’s hardly the point of the Galaxy.


It’s actually pretty good to drive and is packed with plenty of kit as standard, so you won’t feel like you’re ‘slumming it’ in a rental hack.

What’s the best Ford Galaxy model/engine to choose?

This is simple, because the basic Ford Galaxy is the best Ford Galaxy. The entry-level Zetec trim packs all the equipment you need for family life, while the 150PS version of the 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel offers a compelling blend of performance and fuel economy.


It’s a similar story if you’re buying a used Ford Galaxy, because we don’t see a need to progress beyond the 150PS version of the 2.0-litre Duratorq engine and Zetec trim.


However, we would recommend buying a nearly-new Galaxy. Ford improved the Galaxy in 2019 for the 2020 model-year update, while the diesel engines introduced in 2018 were a big step forward. 

What other cars are similar to the Ford Galaxy?

In a previous life, the Ford Galaxy shared much in common with the near-identical Volkswagen Sharan and SEAT Alhambra. Although the current version is a standalone model, the Sharan and Alhambra remain the Ford’s chief rivals.


If you only need access to a third row of seats on an infrequent basis, the smaller Ford S-Max and Volkswagen Touran are worth a look, while the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer and Renault Grand Scenic provide a little more flair.


You should also consider the increasing range of 5+2 SUVs, including the Skoda Kodiaq, SEAT Tarraco and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.
