2010 Mitsubishi Galant Review

Family sedan with not much power, style, or driving ability

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is a midsize family sedan capable of carrying five passengers, which comes in two trim levels: the base ES and the luxury SE. The sole power train is a 2.4-liter I-4 engine generating only 160 horsepower married to a four-speed automatic transmission.

The LS trim is unremarkable, but the SE trim boasts 18 inch wheels, Sirius satellite radio, a front strut tower bar, a glove box with illumination, a 650 Watt Rockford Acoustic Design system, a navigation system, and fog lights. The Mitsubishi Galant delivers exceptional fuel efficiency of 30 miles per gallon on the highway but only 21 mpg in the city.

New for 2010

For 2010, the Mitsubishi Galant received a new silver-painted mesh grille and the luxury SE trim received standard 18-inch alloy wheels, a color-keyed rear spoiler, and a chrome exhaust finisher. In addition, the SE boasts a navigation/backup camera package that features Mitsubishi's multi-communication system with a seven-inch touch-screen LCD, DVD-based navigation with lane guidance, and a backup camera

Essentials

Engine: 2.4L I-4
Transmission: 4-speed automatic
Body Style: Sedan
Trims: ES Sedan, SE Sedan

On the Outside

Even thought it received an update in 2009, the Mitsubishi Galant still has a block profile, not exactly a plus in today's styling world. However, Mitsubishi does sport such design cues as color-keyed door handles and optional 18-inch alloy wheels.

From the Inside

With 101 cubic feet of interior volume, the Mitsubishi Galant is roomy and comfortable. The SE trim offers automatic climate control, power driver seat, 650-watt audio, navigation, backup camera, and illuminated glove box.

Driving Performance

Riding on a front strut/rear multi-link suspension, Mitsubishi Galant is equipped with a 160 horsepower, 2.4-liter 16-valve four-cylinder engine that features Mitsubishi's MIVEC variable valve timing. Coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control, the 2.4 engine provides adequate acceleration but does deliver an exceptional 30 mpg on the highway.

Safety Equipment

Standard safety features on the Mitsubishi Galant include dual-stage front, front seat-mounted side, and front/rear curtain airbags. Also standard are anti-lock brakes and stability and traction control.

Gas Mileage

ES, SE: 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway

Plusses

  • Highway gas mileage
  • Spacious interior
  • SE features

Minuses

  • Poor city gas mileage
  • Lack of V-6 or turbo
  • Old-fashioned styling
  • Four-speed automatic transmission

Rating
