The striking 2011 Mitsubishi Galant, with its high-end styling and amenities, brings tremendous value to the midsize luxury sports sedan segment with fuel efficiency, roomy seating for five and even more included features and accessories for the new model year.
For 2011, the upper-level Galant SE sees a power glass sunroof, HomeLink automatic garage door integration, illuminated visor vanity mirrors and an electrochromic interior rearview mirror joining the model’s already expansive list of included equipment.
The base Galant ES includes a 140-watt AM/FM/CD sound system with MP3 playback capability with auxiliary audio input; air conditioning; cruise control; automatic headlamp shut off; integrated key and key fob with trunk release and panic button; keyless entry system; and power windows, mirrors and door locks.
New design features for the 2011 Galant includes chrome beltline molding that lends this stylish luxury sports sedan an even more upscale exterior appearance along with a half-inch ride height reduction for improved aerodynamic efficiency and a sleeker stance.
A 2.4-liter, 160-horsepower 4-cylinder engine along with a 4-speed Sportronic automatic transmission that allows the driver the option to manually make gear changes, make for a very fun and fuel-efficient drivetrain package that delivers an impressive highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg.
A well-engineered independent suspension system that employs a MacPherson strut/coil spring up front and a tightly packaged low-mount multi-link design in the rear and improved interior sound insulation allow the Galant’s occupants to enjoy a very smooth and composed ride inside the whisper-quiet cabin.
Base model estimated mpg: 21/30
Estimated starting price: $22,000
