Model Variants available are Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X.
CLEVER TECHNOLOGIES YOU CAN COUNT ON
From assisting you in challenging road conditions, to enhancing your enjoyment behind the wheel, the Galaxy is designed to make every driving experience effortless.
An available intelligent All-Wheel Drive system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is intelligent, so it’s able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And by providing ‘torque on demand’, the system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.
Sees what’s coming, from either side A tiny and discreet camera, on the front of the vehicle relays a split screen image in your car’s 8'' Touchscreen, so you can see vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians coming from either side. This optional new technology is invaluable if you’re edging out of a narrow parking space, or onto a busy road where your lateral view is obstructed.
*Function requires optional Sony Navigation System
Front Split View CameraActive Park Assist system Using a combination of different technologies, Active Park Assist does more than steer you into parallel parking spots. With Park Out Assist, it helps you pull out of them, too. The Perpendicular Parking system can sense if there’s space for your car to fit, then reverse you in. Side Parking Aid also warns you if there are any lateral obstructions.
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) Power-assisted steering that responds to every situation Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving maneuverability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering. Now with drift control, EPAS also takes into account crosswinds and other driving conditions, while active nibble control reduces any unwanted vibration in the steering wheel.
Hill Start Assist Extra control during hill starts. Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
All-new advanced multi-link rear suspension Advanced suspension for superb ride and handling An all-new advanced multi-link rear suspension, combined with an enhanced ‘McPherson strut’ front suspension delivers excellent wheel control and superb ride quality. As a result, the car provides responsive handling in all road situations.
Adaptive Cruise Control Cruise control that can adapt automatically With Adaptive Cruise Control technology, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow the car to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
DESIGNED TO KEEP YOU AND YOUR PASSENGERS SAFE FROM HARM
The Galaxy is equipped a wide range of innovative safety measures: every one designed to offer you and your passengers high levels of protection.
Intelligent Protection System Coordinated safety systems activate in a split-second An advanced Intelligent Protection System coordinates a series of safety features, giving you and your passengers maximum protection. Galaxy also has a rigid bodyshell that absorbs impact and advanced seat and seat belt technology, to reduce the chance of injury in the event of an accident.
A system that can help protect pedestrians Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection detects vehicles and pedestrians in the road ahead, or who could cross the vehicle’s path, and warns you of their presence. If you don’t respond, the system automatically applies the brakes. This new technology is designed to help reduce the severity of accidents, or help avoid them altogether, and functions at speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph).
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection
Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) Extra help when you’re reversing An entirely new technology: detects approaching vehicles when drivers are reversing out of a space then sounds a warning and illuminates a light in the corresponding wing mirror.
Headlamps that help you see around bends Adaptive lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlamps deliver a precise and intensely bright light patterns that is automatically adjusted to suit different road and driving conditions. Day time running lights are also included and LED tracer turn indicator strips replace traditional ‘blinking’ lights, illuminating in sequence for high visibility. In addition, Glare Free High Beam adjusts itself automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers and by following the road, these new headlamps help you see more clearly when driving around bends.
Ford Adaptive Dynamic LED technologyLane Keeping System An advanced system to help you stay in your lane A Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Alert then warns you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning. If you're slow to react or don’t respond, Lane Keeping Aid can provide steering torque assistance to help guide you safely back into the right lane. The technology is designed for multi-lane roads (like motorways), so will automatically deactivate at speeds below 43mph (65 km/h) or can be turned off manually.
Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) Extra power for emergency braking Emergency Brake Assist helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability Programme system, which senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary.
An advanced airbag system A driver’s airbag is optimised for chest protection and a knee airbag can help protect lower limbs. Front seat side pelvic and thorax airbags are shaped to provide a more effective safeguard and curtain airbags are designed to provide additional shielding for all three rows of seats. New side pelvic and thorax airbags are available for the outermost seats in the second row, too. Seat belt pre-tensioners and load limiters fitted to these seats also help protect occupants in the event of a frontal impact, slowing them down more efficiently. Plus, with seat belt minders fitted as standard, you’ll always know when everyone has securely fastened their seat belts.
Ford SYNC 2 with Emergency Assistance An important aspect of Ford SYNC 2 is Ford Emergency Assistance*. This potentially life-saving feature is designed to assist you in placing an emergency call and can provide the emergency services with information about your vehicle’s location, in your own language. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious.
*Ford Emergency Assistance operates in over 30 European countries. This feature works when paired with a compatible connected mobile phone that is with you when an airbag is deployed (excludes knee airbags) or a sensor that registers a crash deactivates the fuel pump. Text function and Emergency Assistance not supported by all European languages.
Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) Mirrors that see what you can’t A Blind Spot Information System can help you change lanes more safely, thanks to RADAR sensors that scan the blind spots on either side of your vehicle. If they detect a vehicle you can’t see, an orange light, displayed in the corresponding side door mirror, illuminates to warn you. BLIS also features a completely new technology, Cross Traffic Alert.
ISOFIX points Helping to keep children safe ISOFIX child seat attachment points are fitted to the second row of seats.
Perimeter alarm A Thatcham Category 1 alarm is a sophisticated system that automatically arms itself when you double-lock the vehicle and will sound a powerful alarm if triggered by forced entry, the car being lifted, or if the motion sensors pick up any movement inside.

Automatic Paddle Shift Controls Normally only found on high end sports cars, Automatic Paddle Shift Controls are available with both the 6-speed automatic and PowerShift transmissions. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the paddle controls are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.
Ford Eco Mode The innovative Ford Eco Mode system continually assesses the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption. The system analyses your speed, gear shifting, braking and anticipation levels, plus the number of short and long journeys you make. Smart software then advises you on how to improve fuel economy.
Three types of 6-speed transmission With the Galaxy, you can choose from three different transmissions. A 6-speed manual gearbox has a high torque capacity and delivers smooth, accurate gear-changes. A 6-speed automatic also has a high torque capacity and carefully tuned shifting points for maximum power and efficiency. There are also the options of all-wheel drive and 6-speed Ford PowerShift.
Smart Regenerative Charging A more efficient way to re-charge your battery Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it and, whenever possible, avoids doing so when you’re pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.
Ford PowerShift gearbox. Fast and fuel-saving Combining the convenience of an automatic with the control of a manual, this advanced 6-speed gearbox pre-selects the next gear for you so you don’t lose power when you change. PowerShift’s lightning fast, seamless gear changes make driving smoother while saving fuel and lowering CO2 emissions compared to a normal automatic.
Auto Start-Stop When you stop at traffic lights or your car is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system. When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in towns and cities, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
* The declared fuel consumptions and CO2 emissions are measured according to the technical requirements and specifications of European Directive 80/1268/EEC and the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 as amended by (EC) 692/2008. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are specified for a vehicle type and not for a single car. The applied standard test procedure enables comparisons between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. In additional to the fuel efficiency of a car, driving behaviour as well as other non-technical factors are very important in determining a car’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. A guide on the fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contain data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge or can be downloaded from http://carfueldata.dft.gov.uk/. Note: All vehicles are Durashift 5-speed manual unless otherwise stated.
