Both models have been designed and developed in-house by Ford of Europe, and will be built at the company’s Genk Assembly Plant in Belgium.
Galaxy customers can choose from three engines and S-MAX customers can choose from four.
The 2.0-litre Duratec HE petrol engine, Duratorq TDCi 1.8-litre diesel engine and Duratorq TDCi 2.0-litre diesel engine are available on both models. S-MAX customers have an extra 218bhp 2.5-litre Duratec petrol engine.
The S-MAX and Galaxy both feature the Ford ‘FoldFlatSystem’ (FFS). FFS allows customers to move and individually fold second and third row seats.
The new Galaxy and S-MAX have an active suspension system with continuously controlled damping (CCD) and adaptive cruise control with forward alert. A new driver's knee airbag is also included, along with a permanent tyre pressure monitoring system and an active collision mitigation system. Hill-launch-assist is also included as standard.
A panorama glass roof can be specified on either of the two models.
