2007 Mitsubishi Galant review and picture


There is very little to the 2007 Mitsubishi Galant that holds it back, but what little that is does keep it from joining with its rivals in the class of family sedans at the very front. It’s not a bad car–nowhere near it. But it’s list of features is shorter than others and it isn’t as practical as a family car should be. Still, seating four it is spacious front to back, fun to handle, and fared great on crash tests scores.

The Good:

  • fun to drive
  • great handling
  • did well on crash tests
  • great audio options
  • powerful V6 engine
  • well designed
  • comfortable

The Bad:

  • no manual transmission
  • no stability control
  • little room for cargo in cabin
  • back seat doesn’t fold
  • cheap interior

The 2007 model year brings lots of surface changes for the Mitsubishi Galant, including redesigned grilles and bumpers, as well as a new interior trim. In the area of safety, side curtain airbags are now standard. With the trim levels, both the LS and SE trims are history, replaced with a luxurious Ralliart trim level, which has a sport tuned suspension V6 engine with 258-hp. Some options are navigation system, five speed automatic transmission, and a new sports package.

A midsized sedan, the 2007 Mitsubishi Galant is offered in four trim levels. These levels are the DE, ES, GTS, and Ralliart. The DE comes with the following features standard:

  • AC
  • full power accessories
  • CD player
  • keyless entry

The ES comes with a few options in packages, which include features like a CD changer, satellite radio, a moonroof, alloy wheels, and leather seating. It makes the addition of, standard:

  • cruise control
  • faux titanium trim

The GTS comes with:

  • V6 engine
  • 17 inch alloy wheels
  • rear spoiler
  • leather seating
  • heated front seats

Finally is the sporty, top of the line Ralliart. It’s the only trim level to come with a navigation system, and also adds the following features standard:

  • powered-up V6
  • sport tuned suspension
  • 18-inch ally wheels
  • automatic climate control
  • satellite radio
  • moonroof

For both side and front impacts, the 2007 Mitsubishi Galant earned five stars from the NHTSA and a rating of good from the IIHS. It doesn’t come with stability control, but it is well-equipped all the same, with full-length side curtain airbags, tire pressure monitor, and traction control.
