Performance and Efficiency

The Galaxy’s powertrain line-up now includes a new petrol engine, alongside its diesel options. Working in tandem with these engines are an array of advanced technologies. For example, the hybrid’s continuously variable automatic transmission optimises fuel economy and maximises performance. While the diesel's Auto-Start-Stop cuts fuel consumption. Hybrid or diesel, automatic or manual, Galaxy’s engineering lets you find your ideal balance of rewarding performance and impressive efficiency.
