Adaptive Lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlights delivers precise and intensely bright light patterns that are automatically adjusted to suit different road and driving conditions. Daytime running lights are also included and LED sequential turn indicator strips
replace traditional ‘blinking’ lights, illuminating in sequence for high visibility. In addition, Glare-free high beam adjusts itself automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers and by following the road, these new headlights help you see more clearly when driving around bends.
An advanced airbag system
A driver’s airbag is
optimised for chest protection and a knee airbag can help protect lower limbs. Front seat side pelvic and thorax airbags are shaped to provide a more effective safeguard and curtain airbags are designed to provide additional shielding for all three rows of seats. New side pelvic and thorax airbags are available for the outermost seats in the second row, too. Seat belt pre-tensioners and load limiters fitted to these seats also help protect occupants in the event of a frontal impact, slowing them down more efficiently. Plus, with seat belt minders fitted as standard, you’ll always know when everyone has securely fastened their seat belts.
Parking made even easier
Active Park Assist can steer you into parking spaces just 20% longer than your vehicle. Simply push a button and the sensors of this innovative system locate a suitable space as you drive past. Then it automatically steers you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears
and brake (following on-screen instructions and audible signals).
Extra control during hill starts
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling
backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Comfort & Convenience
A hands-free liftgate for effortless opening and closing
If you’ve got your hands full, and the Galaxy senses the proximity of your KeyFree key fob, all you have to do is wave your foot under the rear bumper and the liftgate will automatically open or close.
Go hands-free with SYNC 3
SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It’s faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the
colour Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features AppLink, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto‡, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
Performance & Efficiency
Paddle Shift: enjoy rapid gear changes on an automatic
Normally only found on
high end sports cars, Automatic Paddle Shift Controls are available with both the 6-speed automatic and PowerShift transmissions. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the paddle controls are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.
Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
Safety & Security
Coordinated safety systems activate in a split-second
The Galaxy is equipped with an advanced Intelligent Protection System (IPS), which coordinates a series of safety systems to offer maximum protection for you and your passengers.
Extra power for emergency braking
Emergency Brake Assist helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. It’s controlled automatically via the Electronic Stability Control system, which senses how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increases it, if necessary.
