2010 Mitsubishi Galant ES

2010 Mitsubishi Galant Review

(2 Stars)  Old player in progressive league

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
There was a time when the Galant from Mitsubishi was a car to be considered when shopping for a mid-sized sedan. They were fairly sport, fairly stylish, and could even be found with what was at the time, advanced technology, in the form of the Turbocharged, all-wheel drive VR4 from the 1980's. Times have changed a great deal since then, but the Galant has not. It lacks much of the inspiration that has gone into class leading models and has now been surpassed in virtually all respects by the competition. It's most recent generation came off the factory floor in 2004.

While there have been some performance oriented engines available over the years, such as the 258 HP V-6 of 2007, the current Galant is only offered with the companies anemic 2.4 liter four cylinder, making 160 HP. The fact that its fuel economy is only middling does nothing to help correct the lack of power. Still the Galant can seat 5 and return 30mpg on the highway. It seems likely that a new Galant will be making its way to our shores in the near future.
