Got an army of children? If so, try the Ford Galaxy 2.0 Zetec TDCi that is available via a low cost finance plan. Terms for this seven-seater – that easily swallows soldiers and their kit - include the £9,316.66 deposit of which the manufacturer pays £1,500. This is followed by one payment of £339 then twenty-three of £329. The former includes the £10 finance facility fee. At the end of the term the motorist can settle the £11,188 final payment to own the vehicle outright. This – excluding the manufacturer's deposit contribution - totals £26,920.66 including the £10 purchase fee and £1,425.66 interest (4.9% APR representative). Option two is to return it and make the little soldiers walk back to barracks. With this scenario there is nothing else to pay assuming the vehicle is in fair condition and has not exceeded its 9,000 mile annual allowance. So, best not make too many trips into enemy territory as excesses are charged at 9.6 pence per-mile and damage according to severity. Option three is to part exchange via a new finance plan. Here, any value beyond the final payment contributes toward the replacement's deposit.
New Ford Galaxy Zetec 2.0 TDCi Review
The Ford Galaxy 2.0 Zetec TDCi perfectly suits an army of kids. Why? Because the five rear seats – that are arranged in a row of three followed by a row of two - fold flat individually and the middle set slides forwards and backwards. These manoeuvres require very little physical effort and enable parents to easily separate misbehaving soldiers. The boot is impressive too. As such, even with seven people aboard the cargo capacity is 308-litres and this rises to 2,325-litres when the five rear seats are flat. The latter is a monstrous figure that eclipses virtually every estate car on the market. There are also countless storage compartments to keep military hardware out of sight. Furthermore, this workhorse has sure-footed handling so it feels stable in enemy territory. The 140PS Galaxy also has pleasing performance as it hits 62mph in 10.1 seconds and averages 47.9mpg. Such figures are respectable for the class. These characteristics complement the fair specification that includes: parking sensors, Bluetooth, climate control, MP3 playback, and a fuel cap that prevents the driver pumping the wrong gas into the tank. Good thing too – that could lead to caught martial.
