Pricewatch: Ford Galaxy versus Renault Espace

FORD’S new Galaxy takes over from the previous best-selling but distinctly aged version.

Seven fold-flat seats, increased stowage and generous specification will no doubt see it back near the top of the sales charts, but does it have what it takes to hit the number one spot in residual values too?

The MPV sector is struggling at the moment, but CAP predictions suggest the Galaxy is about to buck the trend and may well trounce long-standing sector leader, the Renault Espace.
