MPV: Ford Galaxy

Hugely spacious yet pretty fun to drive, the Ford Galaxy looks like great value at £4,200

What £4,200 buys: Ford Galaxy 1.8 TDCi LX
(100,000 miles, 08 plate)
Engine: 1.8-litre 4cyl, 123bhp
0-62mph/top speed: 11.3 secs, 116mph
Economy/CO2/tax: 44mpg/166g/km/£210

The crossover/SUV surge has seen MPVs fall out of favour, which is why few manufacturers now offer one. Those that do, such as Ford, SEAT and VW, charge £350 per month for a PCP on average, which works out at £4,200 per year. Buy used, and that budget secures a 2008 Ford Galaxy 1.8 TDCi.

Best 7-seater cars to buy

The recently replaced Galaxy is the best-selling MPV in the UK, which is no great surprise. It appeals with its generous standard kit, plus it's fun to drive for a car of its size. But the Ford also delivers where it matters most - it can carry seven adults in comfort and doesn't cost a fortune to run.

Also consider:

2008 Kia Sedona: Sedona is one of the most spcaious MPVS around, and its low profile means used prices are keen.
