Virtual Adviser's™ opinion
Well, these are two pretty similar cars we have here! It's only details that could potentially make the difference. Considering they both belong to the mpv segment and utilize the same 5-door MPV body style and the front wheel drive system, it all comes up to the specific petrol engine choice they offer. The first one has a Mazda-engineered powertrain under the hood, a 4-cylinder, 16-valves 203hp unit, while the other one gets its power and torque from a 6-cylinder, 12-valves 193hp engine designed by Chrysler.Safety
The fact that the Ford got tested by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), while the other contender didn't, puts it sky-high safety-wise, in my eyes at least. Still, apart from the official crash test results there are other things we need to be aware of. Both vehicles belong to the mpv segment, which is generally a good thing safety-wise, but it doesn't do much to help us decide between the two. On the other hand, when it comes to weight, a factor that most people underestimate, Grand Voyager offers a considerable difference of 24% more metal.Reliability
Reliability is not the best thing to consider on the make level, but it is worth mentioning that Ford is significantly less fault-prone, at least on all of the models level. These are the results of an independent reasearch, while our visitors describe reliability of Ford, as well as Chrysler, with the same average rating of 4.4 out of 5. Some independent research have also placed Galaxy 50% below average, and Grand Voyager is more or less at the same level.Above it all, drivers of cars with the same engine as Galaxy rank it on average as 3.7, while the one under the competitor's bonnet gets 3.0 out of 5.Performance & Fuel economy
Ford is way more agile, reaching 100km/h in 3.8 seconds less than its competitor. In addition to that it accelerates all the way to 217 kilometers per hour, 24km/h more than the other car. When it comes to fuel economy an obvious choice would be Galaxy, averaging around 8.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (35 mpg), in combined cycle. That's 52% difference compared to Grand Voyager!
Ford appears just a bit more reliable, although the difference is truly marginal. The most important thing when deciding between any two vehicles should always be safety, both passive and active. In my opinion, everything taken into account, Galaxy beats the other contender by far, making it the best choice without even considering other things. It all continues in the same direction, with Ford outracing its opponent in any situation possible, making it better choice for boy racers. To make things even better, it consumps less fuel! All together, there's not much more to say, in this case I wouldn't even consider anything but Ford. Anyway, that's the most objective conclusion I could've came up with and it's based solely on the information found on this website. Aspects such as design, practicality, brand value and driving experience are there for you to measure them out. In case you have two minutes to spare I invite you to define your needs, desires and budget and see which car would be chosen by the virtual adviser™, among thousands of similar, yet so different vehicles.
