Ford Galaxy buying guide

What Ford Galaxy trim levels are there?

The latest Galaxy is offered in Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X trim levels. Highlights of entry-level Zetec include 17-inch alloys, electric heated door mirrors and a Quickclear heated windscreen. Titanium, the most popular spec, upgrades to LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a new design of 17-inch alloys, and enhanced infotainment. Titanium X dials up the luxury and convenience with a power tailgate, rear-view camera, electric memory front seats and leather upholstery.

Ford Galaxy interior and technology

It’s not only aimed at families, but luxury taxis and even chauffeurs as well. That means the Galaxy feels plush inside, with lots of good-quality materials. Everything feels hard-wearing and you shouldn’t experience too many squeaks or rattles. The interior is very user-friendly and helps to take the strain out of long journeys.

An eight-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard means the design isn’t too button-heavy. Running Ford’s Sync 3 system, you can pair it with your smartphone and it can even read out your text messages while you’re driving. Titanium editions get sat nav, plus a semi-digital instrument cluster – and on the hybrid, you get an interesting power display too.

Ford Galaxy engine range explained

Ford Galaxy 2.0 EcoBlue diesel

Available with 150hp or 190hp, Ford’s 2.0-litre diesel engine is what you’d expect to find in a car like this. Both have enough power to propel a fully loaded Galaxy forwards, with the 190hp version being quicker off the line and making motorway driving easy. With an automatic gearbox, the diesel Galaxy manages around 43mpg. You might see four-wheel drive 190hp versions from time to time, but this won’t be necessary for most drivers and it’s a little less economical.

Ford Galaxy 2.5 FHEV hybrid

In recent years the Galaxy has been offered with a ‘full’ hybrid engine. Its battery doesn’t need to be plugged in, and its diesel-matching fuel economy is pretty good for a petrol-engined car. The Galaxy FHEV will be most economical at lower speeds and around town.

Ford Galaxy FAQs

Many customers prefer seven-seat SUVs these days, like the Peugeot 5008 and Skoda Kodiaq, but the Ford Galaxy is a great pick if practicality is a primary concern. Short of a van-based MPV, it’s one of the roomiest cars around. The Galaxy is soldiering on until June 2023, when it’ll be withdrawn from Ford’s new car range. But you’ll still be able to buy a used Galaxy from Motorpoint long after that.

It’s big. At 4,848mm long, the Galaxy is 52mm longer than its S-Max sibling, has more spacious third-row seats and up to 2,339 litres of boot space (if you fold rows two and three flat and load everything to the roof!), which compares with 2,020 for the S-Max. There are three sets of Isofix child-seat points in the Galaxy, lots of storage zones and various sockets and cupholders to keep occupants happy on long journeys.

Earlier versions of the Galaxy offered either the 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, or three different versions of the 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbodiesel. More recently the diesel range has been slimmed down, while an all-new hybrid version has also been introduced. Marketed as a FHEV (Full Hybrid Electric Vehicle), it combines a 2.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery to boost fuel economy. While most Galaxy models are front-wheel drive, occasionally you’ll find an example with all-wheel drive. The majority have automatic gearboxes.

The Ford Galaxy should be a reliable car – after all, it's been a favourite of an executive taxi company for years. We haven't heard of any significant failings with the Galaxy, nor the S-Max or Mondeo it shares parts with. Parts should be inexpensive and you'll find a Ford dealer in most major towns.

Yes, each of the Ford Galaxy's individual middle seats have Isofix points, so you've got three in total. Check out our guide to the best cars that can fit three car seats here.

Yes, the Ford Galaxy comes as standard with seven seats and, unusually, the rearmost seats are spacious enough for adults. The second- and third-row seats fold individually, and fold flat without any effort at all.
