Mitsubishi Galant Price, Review, Specs, what car reviews, In the 1980s the Mitsubishi Galant was known for its sporty dynamic in both styling and ride. Unfortunately, for most of the past two decades, the Galant has spiraled downward. The current-generation Galant was introduced in 2004, and perhaps the Galant misplaced the memo about it being 2012, because styling hasn’t progressed much since then.

Considering that we’re now on our third Toyota Camry since the current Galant was introduced, it’s not surprising that Mitsubishi’s delay in updating the Galant’s style has translated into low sales figures, and it’s not on many shopping lists these days. A meek 2.4-liter inline-4 engine offers a back-of-the-pack 160 horsepower, and its ancient four-speed automatic transmission isn’t helping the Galant’s case either

Sassy Styling, Both Inside and Out

With its crisp, neatly folded exterior sheetmetal and pleasing proportions, the handsome 2011 Mitsubishi Galant mid-size luxury sports sedan certainly stands apart from other vehicles in its class.

Notable in its good-looking design is its prominent front fascia which features a very bold-looking silver painted mesh grille. Squared-off headlights that contain a smaller pair of lamps stacked one on top of the other at the outer edges are also a styling tour de force. The prominent creases along the hood give the design a brawny look. Without question, the front end styling of this sedan is truly unlike any other.

A futuristic-looking yet elegant “cat’s eye” taillight design and a sporty trunk lid-mounted lip spoiler (the latter element included on the Galant SE with Leather package) can’t help but please the discerning eye.

Front and center inside the Galant’s warm-looking interior is the tall center console waterfall that is done up in a handsome silver finish, its controls a thoughtful blend of knobs and buttons that never overwhelm the senses both visually and in functionality. Perched atop the center stack in the Galant SE is a very intuitive, 7-in. touch-screen DVD-based navigation system; a convenient rear backup camera system is also included. A chrome shift lever gate and thin strips of silver-colored trim that line the gauge faces and lay horizontally across the dashboard top off a rich-looking interior design deserving of a vehicle that should cost thousands of dollars more than the Galant’s very attainable price point.

Fuel-Efficient 2.4-Liter Engine

All 2011 Mitsubishi Galant models are powered by a venerable 2.4-liter, 16-valve SOHC inline-4-cylinder engine that features Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) for improved power production, fuel economy and lower emissions. This engine produces 160 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 157 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. A variation of this powerplant that has been certified as a Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) is available for sale in California, Maine, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont and produces slightly less horsepower with a rating of 155 bhp. A 4-speed Sportronic® automatic transmission that gives the driver the option of manually shifting gears when desired is standard equipment.

This quiet and efficient powertrain not only produces outstanding fuel economy with a highway rating of 30 mpg but also saves its owner additional money at the pump as this engine runs on regular-grade unleaded fuel.

Chassis: Smooth Operator

Thanks to the Galant’s rigid chassis and ideally-placed sound insulation, occupants are treated to a hushed ride from a well-engineered platform that keeps sound intrusion to a minimum. Thoughtful design can also be found in the car’s independent suspension – a MacPherson strut configuration with coil springs that reside in a sub-frame up front and a low-mount multi-link setup in the rear of the vehicle – allowing for supple suspension damping that soaks up road irregularities with aplomb along with providing responsive handling.
