Driving

Whichever version of the Galaxy you choose, you'll find confidence-inspiring handling and a composed and well-controlled approach to corners. Compared to softer competitors, this nimble, dynamic attitude reinforces the Ford's car-like feel. Yet while noise levels are all but a match for the class best, the Ford's firmer ride does make it less relaxing. Petrol and diesel engines should all be familiar, and it's the TDCi oil-burners that offer the easier-going performance. Even the smaller 1.8-litre is responsive at lower revs and smooth higher up, while the superb gearbox means frequent shifts are a pleasure, not a pain. The higher-powered 2.0-litre is a better choice if you intend to carry heavy loads, though.
