Comfortable and well constructed, the Galaxy is a sister car to the VW Sharan and Seat Alhambra. Like them, it is big for five occupants plus their luggage, but not really a match for the bigger Peugeot 807, Citroen C8 or Toyota Previa if you regularly want to use seven seats. The V6 petrol engine combines serious performance with an equally serious thirst (20mpg under hard use). The entry-level 2.3-litre petrol engine or torquey 1.9-litre TDi 115 turbodiesel options are less fun but considerably more sensible. The Galaxy's most significant problem is its Seat sister, which offers more standard equipment for less money.
