Ford reveals the new generation of its esteemed family car

Ford has revealed its new Galaxy, which has become a more advanced, spacious and technology-laden people carrier for seven passengers.

Featuring the carmaker's latest design language, it features a striking new grille and slim-line headlamps. The new Galaxy's seven full-size seats and versatile layout enables families to easily switch between seating or load space with a segment-first feature that raises third-row seats at the push of a button.

Comfort is enhanced for front-seat passengers thanks to Ford's massaging Multi-Contour Seats. Rear-seat passengers will also notice the improved ride comfort, thanks to the integral link rear suspension, which is smoother and eliminates tyre noise.

The new Galaxy also supports drivers both in the town and on the motorway with advanced technologies including Intelligent Speed Limiter, which scans traffic signs and adjusts the throttle to help drivers stay within legal speed limits and avoid fines, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which will reduce the severity of some frontal collisions involving vehicles and pedestrians, or help drivers avoid some impacts altogether.

The new Galaxy will also feature Glare-Free Highbeam technology for the adaptive LED headlamps, which detects vehicles ahead and fades out light that could dazzle oncoming drivers, while retaining maximum illumination for other areas.

Roelant de Waard, Vice-President of Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford of Europe, said: "Families across Europe have grown up with the Galaxy. Customers are reassured by its ability to carry seven in first-class comfort and safety, and to constantly surprise with its unmatched versatility. The all-new Galaxy enhances those qualities with improved dynamics, fuel efficiency and refinement  as well as useful innovations."
