Diversity choose the Ford Galaxy

However, even the vast seven-seat people carrier would not be able to seat all eleven members of the dance troupe, instead it will support the group on its tour and provide space for luggage and dancers when needed.

The model chosen, a Ford Galaxy in Titanium X specification is the most generously equipped model in the Galaxy range with a glass panoramic roof, alloy wheels and LED interior lights as standard.

Extra gadgets include climate control, cruise control and a high-spec sound system with USB connectivity.

In keeping with the Britain’s Got Talent theme, the 2.0-litre TDCi engine developing 140PS comes from the same family as the million diesel engines built at Ford’s Dagenham factory each year.

The frugal diesel will deliver 47mpg while the group is on the road with CO2 emissions as low as 159g/km, ensuring running costs are kept to a minimum.

Jon Wellsman, Ford Britain sales director, said: “As the Ford car offering the most space and versatility, the Ford Galaxy is well matched to Diversity’s requirements for space for multiple passengers and equipment. Essex is Ford’s spiritual home and I’m delighted that we are able to support another of our county’s favourites.”

Ford says the Galaxy is the ‘home of the luxury MPV’ and the long list of equipment has impressed the band after taking delivery of the model.

Known for their acrobatic dancing, Diversity won the television talent search last year and will be showing off their skills across the UK in their latest tour.

For those not in Diversity, the Ford Galaxy is available at Ford dealerships now from £24,590.
