The Top Gear car review:Ford Galaxy

7/10
Overall verdict
A big step up from the old one, but still overshadowed by the brilliant S-Max.
 

For: 

Very spacious, comfortable, decent to drive, good-quality interior

Against: 

S-Max is nearly as useful but better and cheaper

Overview

What is it?

The all-new version of the S-Max’s older, more mature cousin – which, like the S-Max, now sits on the same platform as, and shares its engines and drivetrains with, the new Mondeo. Its more upright body (particularly at the rear – think square rather than curving rooflines) allows for more headroom and a boot which, with all bar the two front seats folded flat, is over 300 litres more capacious than an S-Max’s. 

Truth be told, there’s isn’t much between the two, but if a third-row sufficiently spacious enough to hold adults for more than a few minutes is a factor, of the two, the Galaxy may be the one to go for.
