One of the best-selling minivans in its segment, the Ford Galaxy is now at its third generation, which was introduced back in 2015.
Four years later, Ford has decided to gift the model with a rather extensive mid-cycle facelift. On the exterior, by far the biggest modifications are found at the front, where the upper front fascia has been completely revised, while the lower fascia is now paired with a new grille.

The facelift includes a bright chrome fog lamp surrounding that mirrors the one found on the upper grille. On the other hand, the ST-Line version gets a different honeycomb upper grille with a black surround and blag fog lamp surrounds, while the S-Max Vignale gets a unique “flying V” design with a satin chrome surround to further distinguish the trim levels. On the inside there are now 18-way adjustable driver and passenger seats that can provide relief for back pain-sufferers on the road, having received the AGR seal of approval, an independent testing committee of medical experts. Just like its platform brother, the S-Max, the revamped Ford Galaxy is now offered with FordPass Connect, which is a on-board modem that essentially turns the car into a mobile WiFi hotspot with connectivity for up to 10 devices at the same time.

The Galaxy was the answer given by Ford to Europe in the matter of 7-seater vehicles.
It was the car designed for people who needed more room or, why not, more seats. Even if the MPV market in Europe dropped in favor of the SUV, this kind of people-carriers was still appreciated in 2015, when the fourth generation of Galaxy was launched.

The 2016 Ford Galaxy kept the dimensions from the previous generation but added more style. It follows the Kinetic Design language that could be seen on other Ford models. It added thinner headlamps, new LED taillights for a stylish look. Ford claims that since the vehicle is built on a car platform, it has a better feeling for the passengers compared to that from a utility vehicle transformed into a people-carrier.

The big, 4848 mm (15.9 ft) long vehicle could accommodate seven adult passengers. It offered enough room even for the last row. The middle row could tilt and slide forward for ease of access. The features offered in the Galaxy are good. The traditional instrument cluster could have been replaced with an optional 10” digital screen.

The engine range is big and filled all the needs for the users. For the diesel version, there was a range from 110 hp up to a 210 hp engine, as for the gasoline versions, that offered between 160 and 240 hp. For some versions, the Galaxy could have been fitted with all-wheel-drive, all-wheel-steering and 8-speed automatic transmission.

The first Galaxy developed without further intervention from Volkswagen was the third generation released in 2006.
One of the strongest rivals on the market was from its own stable, the Ford S-Max, with which the Galaxy shared many of its underpinnings.

In simple words, the Galaxy was more practical, while the S-MAX was more fun to drive and had sharper visuals.

Longer than an S-Max by 52mm and wider by 65mm, the Ford Galaxy was a people carrier offering seating for 7. Its suspension was tuned for comfort, the tall roof ensured great headroom and the big trunk offered 435 liters of cargo.

Unusual for a bulky MPV, the Galaxy was still fun to drive while equipped with the punchy 2.0-liter TDCi Diesel engine that developed 142 hp. Other engine choices were available.

Accessing the 3rd row of seats was a little difficult to access, but once inside, occupants had great room. The second row of seats was mounted on rails, thus expanding the room in the 3rd row was possible.

Inside, the Galaxy was fitted with a new instrument easy-to-read instrument cluster and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted toggle controls for the Ford’s Human Machine Interface.

No compromise was made when it came to safety and the Galaxy was equipped with lots of active and passive safety systems.

The first Ford Galaxy was released in 1995 and has been a top seller ever since.
In comparison to other cars in the same segment, the Galaxy has sold better than the Seat Alhambra or the Volkswagen Sharan,its platform brothers. In 2000, Ford released the facelifted version of the Galaxy. The interior was refreshed, the exterior design brought a sharper nose and the diesel 1.9-liter engine was boosted to 115 hp. In 2000, Ford introduced ABS on all of the Galaxy versions.

The most notable engine available on the Galaxy was the 2.8-liter 24 valves V6 engine, producing 206 CP. Other available engines were 1.9-liter diesel with 90 hp, 115 hp or 150 hp. The torque was remarkable and the fuel consumption was reduced. The engines were paired with either a 6-speed manual or a Select-Shift automatic transmission.

A new Electronic Stability Program system was added as a standard feature for the V6 engine, and for the 115 hp engine as well. While the car looks more like a people carrier, it was one of the sportiest MPVs on the market, even with its tall profile. The standard equipment included 7 seats and the interior space was huge. All 5 rear seats could be folded and the load area would have an immense capacity.

Developed as a joint project with Volkswagen, the Galaxy’s first generation came on a market dominated by the French MPVs from Renault and PSA.
Ford had the MPV experience and used it when it allied with Volkswagen in the AutoEuropa project. The two big carmakers agreed to build the vehicles in Spain and offered them under different badges as SEAT Alhambra, Volkswagen Sharan, and Ford Galaxy.

The aerodynamically shaped MPV started with a sloped front end, with the raked windshield followed the same line as the hood. Ford used similar-shaped headlights as those installed on the Mondeo and an oval grille with its blue badge. The customers did not very like its thick A-pillars, but they were there for better protection. A small, triangular window was mounted between the A-pillar and the door opening. A red strip with lights was extended between the rear quarter panels over the tailgate in the rear.

Inside, the Galaxy was fitted as standard with five seats on the base trim level but was available with seating for up to seven in a 2-3-2 configuration. Despite being slightly longer than a regular compact-segment station-wagon, it offered plenty of room for them, but the trunk was not that big with all the seats up. With them removed, it could relocate a teenager from home to college in one trip.

Under the hood, Ford carried over most of Volkswagen engines but came with two of its own, the 2.0-liter and the 2.3-liter, both with gasoline.
