Ford Galaxy MPV - Interior & comfort
The Ford Galaxy is classier inside than ever, in addition to being well laid-out

Ford has focused on making the inside of the latest Galaxy comfortable and luxurious. That’s meant an upgrade in the quality of materials used throughout, including chunky aluminium trim and some good-looking soft leather seats on the Titanium X model. There’s still the odd bit of cheaper plastic in less visible parts of the interior, but even that feels robust.
The dashboard looks modern and uncluttered thanks to an eight-inch high-resolution central touchscreen that removes the need for too many buttons. A 10.1-inch semi digital instrument cluster is standard on the Titanium trim level and optional on Zetec models. This screen merges with the traditional instrument cluster and is a useful addition that can be fully controlled from the multifunction steering wheel. The overall design of the interior looks fresh and upmarket, while the optional full-length panoramic glass roof really enhances the spacious feel of the car.
There are two trim levels to choose from when buying a Ford Galaxy: Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X. The entry-level Zetec is actually very well equipped, but the Titanium model is also popular because of its extra luxuries.
Standard equipment on the Zetec includes front and rear parking sensors, sports seats, power-folding door mirrors, dual-zone air conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth phone connectivity. It’s fitted with Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and Apple Carplay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
Moving up to the Titanium version adds equipment including sat nav, tinted windows, LED daytime running lights, automatic wipers and headlights, keyless entry, cruise control and chrome roof rails. S
It’s well worth considering the optional sat nav if you’re going for a Galaxy Zetec, as it’s pretty good value at £350. The panoramic roof is a £1,100 option on Zetec and Titanium models, but it makes a big difference to how the cars feel inside.
For Titanium cars, you can spec the ‘Titanium Lux Pack’ for £2,500, which adds adaptive LED headlights, leather upholstery, heated and electrically adjustable front seats and a powered tailgate.
