Just took delivery of the Galaxy a few hours ago. It really is very high tech - auto lights, rain activated wipers, electronic handbrake, brake assist, auto boot open and close from key fob or inside the car - ideal for me. It's been 12 years since I drove a new car - I was a little nervous taking it out onto a busy main road from the garage. Very comfortable and quiet for a diesel - very quiet. The car I test drove had an auto gearbox 'stick'. This model has a circular knob. You simply swivel the knurled knob, like a bottle screw cap, to change gear - very simply.
