2010 Mitsubishi Galant Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors


Mitsubishi may be well-known for its sports cars and SUVs, but its family sedan sometimes gets overlooked by the masses. Mitsubishi moved to change its fortunes with the introduction last year of the new Galant. Given a major refreshening both inside and out, the Galant's flashy styling and value-packed standard-equipment list should prove a tempting lure for buyers shopping the more mainstream Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. On the other hand, fierce new competition from Chevrolet's Malibu, and the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima, means the Galant is in a tough market. Look for Mitsubishi to continue offering a number of attractive incentive programs to make it even easier to purchase a 2010 Galant.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a family sedan with a plush interior, a racy exterior and a nice big back seat, the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant deserves a look.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a sport sedan with a V6 engine or a sunroof, you're going to have to stick with Honda or Nissan. Although it does feature a center pass-through slot, the Galant's rear seatback cannot be folded down.

What's New for 2010

The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is given a new silver-painted mesh grille and more interior sound insulation. Anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control and stability control are now standard across the line, but the V6 model is dropped, leaving only the four-cylinder ES and SE trims.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Powered by a 160-horsepower four-cylinder engine, the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant has lost some of the fun it once had when equipped with a V6. Still, the 2.4-liter is fairly smooth and certainly capable of moving the Galant swiftly, if not enthusiastically. The Galant's ride is on par with similar rival sedans both domestic and foreign, and while the steering delivers accurate feedback in most maneuvers, it feels a bit slow to respond during really hard driving. The SE trim, with its low-profile 18-inch performance tires, provides precise handling without a harsh ride.

Favorite Features

Navigation
Standard on the SE, the seven inch screen provides large, clear directions and include points of interest, Diamond Lane Guidance and a rear backup camera.

Sportronic Automatic Transmission
Mitsubishi's Sportronic automatic is one of the better transmissions on the market, allowing the driver to manually change gears without the use of a clutch pedal.
