Which used Ford Galaxy should you buy?
One MPV that’s worth having on your radar is the Ford Galaxy, not least because, as it was first launched in 2015, a decent number have filtered down onto the used market.
Compared with some other cars, the Ford Galaxy wasn’t available in many trims – there were only Ford Galaxy Zetec, Ford Galaxy Titanium and Ford Galaxy Titanium X grades to choose from when new.
However, all models do come with a decent amount of kit as standard, especially when you consider that the specs remained mostly the same throughout the car’s production run.
Likewise, a decent selection of engines was available across the Ford Galaxy’s lifecycle, with the turbocharged diesel options being the best all-rounders for drivers after punchy and frugal family transport – although there were a couple of petrol engines that promise better speed at the expense of fuel economy.
A petrol-electric hybrid option was also available, though do bear in mind that it was only added to the range in 2021, so older, cheaper versions aren't available.
What used Ford Galaxy trim levels are available?
With only Ford Galaxy Zetec, Ford Galaxy Titanium and Ford Galaxy Titanium X specs to choose from, it’s important to know what each level offers. Read on as we explain the highlights.
Ford Galaxy Zetec
The Ford Galaxy Zetec is the entry-level model. Because Zetec is normally a mid-range spec on cars such as the Ford Fiesta and the Ford Focus, it means that even this base version comes fairly well-equipped. A broad array of engines was available, with the only ones not offered the 193PS petrol-electric hybrid and the 243PS 2.0-litre petrol. Trim highlights include:
- Eight-inch touchscreen media system
- Dual-zone air-conditioning
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Cruise control (later models)
- Automatic windscreen wipers
Ford Galaxy Titanium
The next step up the Ford Galaxy trim range ladder is Titanium – which, depending on the age of the used model you’re looking at, was either the mid-level or range-topping spec. All of the engines bar the punchy 243PS petrol were available with Ford Galaxy Titanium models, and all-wheel-drive was offered too. Equipment highlights included:
- Built-in sat-nav
- Lane-keep assist
- Keyless entry
Ford Galaxy Titanium X
Until it was removed from the range in 2020, the Ford Galaxy Titanium X was the flagship model. It has all the gear you’ll find on Ford Galaxy Zetec and Ford Galaxy Titanium models, plus the additional equipment listed below. There are no hybrid Ford Galaxy Titanium X models, as the trim was removed from sale before the petrol-electric option joined the range in 2021.
- Heated front seats
- Panoramic sunroof
- Reversing camera
- Parallel parking driver assistance
Is a used Ford Galaxy a good buy?
There’s plenty to like about the Ford Galaxy. For starters, it’s very roomy and, thanks to the boxy shape, even adults and tall teenagers won’t be left wanting for headroom if they’ve been relegated to the two third-row seats.
Using all seven seats at the same time will compromise the luggage volume a bit, mind – although that’s a problem you’ll find with nearly all people carriers, and isn’t exclusive to the Ford Galaxy.
What isn’t so common among other people carriers, though, is the Ford Galaxy’s surprisingly decent handling around corners. You won’t go mistaking it for a sports car, but the Ford Galaxy doesn’t feel that out of its depth on twisty roads for such a big and heavy vehicle.
That handling setup hasn’t come at the expense of ride comfort, either - in fact, the Galaxy irons out lumps and bumps in the road very well indeed.
