Pricewatch: Ford Galaxy 1.8 TDCi LX 100 v Kia Sedona 2.9 CRDI GS

These are the two biggest MPV brands in fleet this year. Combined old and new versions of the Galaxy have taken a 16% share of the fleet market, and old and newly-launched Sedonas have taken 14.3%.

The Kia majors on value – lots of kit for a low price – while the Ford is the most stylish MPV in the sector. Although its residual value is lower in percentage terms, the Kia loses less in cash terms thanks to this entry level model being £2,000 less new than the equivalent Galaxy.
