Features:

Let’s start with the space and practicality of this vehicle. The Ford Galaxy MPV is highly rated for its impressive legroom and headroom, which allows five people to sit comfortably in the vehicle. The seating arrangement is also large enough to accommodate child seats in the middle row and still allow adults and older children to settle in the rear rows. And, if you’re using all seven seats, there’s still enough room for bags.

Those who might be concerned about the Ford Galaxy MPV’s performance shouldn’t feel as if their concerns are unfounded.

This vehicle is available in different models, one featuring a 1.6-litre Ecoboost petrol engine, while the other a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine. Both engines provide a performance described as ‘quiet and flexible’ and ‘smooth and strong.’ However, if you’re concerned about driving around a full load of passengers, you may fare better with a vehicle boasting a stronger engine.

If you’re concerned about the safety and security of this vehicle, there’s no need to worry.
