Space. The Galaxy is longer (by 52mm) and wider (by 65mm) than the S-Max, with a bigger glasshouse and a less raked roofline. It's longer and more practical than the S, with seven genuinely usable seats. The downside is that you lose some of the S-Max's sharp dynamics and a lot of its sharp visuals.
A little. The Galaxy's suspension is tuned for comfort rather than razor sharp dynamics. But, like the S-Max, it's still rewarding and fun to drive - not words you'd usually associate with a bulky MPV with room for seven. Power comes from the excellent 138bhp, 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. It's keen to rev and punches the Galaxy through the air with surprising refinement.

RE: Ford Galaxy 2.0 (2006) CAR review
How did this article from 2006 shoot to the top of the pile without their being a single comment? There´s a new Sharan out now, by the way. It´s not shared with Ford but is VW´s own effort. It seems to resemble a large and squarer Touran. The Ford looks much sharper.
