2007 Mitsubishi Galant Review

This review was written when the 2007 Mitsubishi Galant was new.

The Galant delivers excellent safety ratings and a spacious rear seat, but can't match the handling performance or interior refinement of others in its class.

The 2007 Mitsubishi Galant offers a smooth and reliable driving experience and comfortable interior seating. "Roomy for four, enjoyable to drive and backed by impressive crash test scores, the 2007 Mitsubishi Galant is a family sedan with spirit and style," says Edmunds. "Compared to its chief rivals, though, it's lacking in practicality and missing a few key features -- which keeps it from being a top choice in this segment."

The Galant is singled out for its statement-making interior and exterior styling. Automobile.com calls it a" good, sporty sedan, with an added dose of personality."

According to New Car Test Drive, "Not everyone agrees on the success of the design, but there's no disputing it's different." Reviews are also mixed about the third row legroom, cargo space and optional navigation system. "It may not be able to match the fit, finish and refinement of the Camry or the Accord, nor the all-wheel-drive prowess and turbocharged thrills of the Mazdaspeed 6, but the Mitsubishi Galant Ralliart is one heck of a good deal," says About.com.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says the Galant is reasonably priced for the "spice and space" it delivers and Motor Week says it's "bound to entice conventional shoppers looking for a super solid sedan with an upshot of performance...with a reasonable price-point." However, IntelliChoice gives the 2007 Galant a "worse than average" rating based on an estimated five-year total cost of ownership. "The Galant does not hold its value as well as the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima or Toyota Camry, but remains on par with the Hyundai Sonata, Chevrolet Impala and Ford Fusion," says Kelley Blue Book.

The 2007 Mitsubishi Galant is available in five trims: the base DE, the ES, the SE, the GTS and the Ralliart. The DE, the ES and the SE are powered by a 2.4-liter MIVEC I4, the GTS makes use of a 3.8-liter V6 and the Ralliart utilizes a 3.8-liter MIVEC V6.
