Ford shows off “safe” Galaxy

Families looking for a suitable multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) might be interested to hear Ford’s thoughts on its Galaxy seven-seater, after the model received joint first prize for safety in a recent survey.

The Which? Car 2007-08 magazine awarded the Galaxy its annual award, describing it as one of the safest cars seen all year.

And Ford is also taking the time to highlight all features on the MPV, such as side curtain and knee airbags in addition to head restraints and electronic stability control.

"Galaxy’s acclaimed safety standards provide added reassurance for buyers this summer," the manufacturer said in a statement.

"While occupant protection is top of the agenda, the thoughtfully designed cabin provides a first-class travel experience."

Prices for the 2.0i LX Galaxy model start at £19,495, rising up to £24,995 for the 2.0 TDCI Ghia automatic model.

Launched in 1995, the first Galaxy was manufactured as a joint venture between Ford and Volkswagen.
