Among many great qualities that make the Ford Galaxy people carrier one of the best selling minivans in UK, fuel economy is one of the most important. The 2.0-litre diesel Ford Galaxy PowerShift does 47.1mpg with emissions of 159g CO2/km, which are astonishing numbers given the car’s class. That gave Ford enough confidence to enter the Galaxy in the 2010 MPG Marathon.

The car is also names as the best MPV by Professional Driver magazine, representing Britain’s private hire, chauffeur and limousine businesses.

Announcing the second win in succession for Galaxy, editor Mark Bursa said:  “Ford Galaxy seemed unassailable in the MPV category of the Professional Driver Car of the Year awards.  A raft of upgrades and improvements this year have made Galaxy more up-market and it drives superbly thanks to an excellent automatic transmission. Galaxy’s all-round competence keeps it ahead of the field.”

The Ford Galaxy accounts for 60 per cent of large MPVs sold in the UK, outselling its nearest competitor by six to one.  Its Professional Driver recognition follows similar success in this year’s awards by BusinessCar magazine, which made Galaxy best MPV for the fourth year running.
