Thank you for ruining what was once an aggressive and beautiful looking car. You have completely transformed the car into a bland and bloated piece of junk metal.
PS: The steering wheel looks like something you stole from an 80s car.
Here is the Australian version, we call it the 380 because of its 3.8 L V6 engine capacity. The exterior styling is different, but the interior styling is the same. There are some structual differences and suspension differences between the US and AU version. The AU version has additional spot welding and structual bracing so the car body is stiffer. The steering ratio is different as well.
It looks like a 10 year old Huyndai.
Oh my oath - they could not have made it more dull and anonymous if they tried! Hideous.
I've worked out there inspiration for the headlights! A cereal box! Such a hopeless looking car. The interior could be from a pre 90's car! Black plastic and completely dull. Makes the camry look a dynamic and exciting drive. Makes the Ford Mondeo look dead set sexy!
Mitsubishi has been releasing some great designs recently and then they make the new Galant look like this!? FUGLY. :t-banghea
They had the beautiful ZT concept and this is what the new Galant could have looked like. Dynamic, functional and sporty with a hue of elegance.
The best Galant will always be the 6th generation. I used to have a '92 Galant GTI 2.0 DOHC 16V and I loved it. :bowdown:
This 2009 model is just a facelift of an older version, so they can't do much with it.
It's more of a facelift than an all new design.
Just and smearing of makeup. Took away any unique styling that the car had to only lose out to Camrys and Accords who have the boring segment all sewn up anyway. Galant like Altima like Mazda 6 has to standout style or performance wise against the Camry/Accord duo. The "facelift" does neither. The hp numbers particularly weak for a 3.8L V6. Oh well this we'll have to wait until that ZT concept makes it into product. So as of right now no chance of me owning another Mitsu again.
I know this is a bit off topic, but do you guys prefer the Australian version?
I always like the looks of the 8th generation model:
It reminds me of a scaled-down 7-Series E38 and that's a good thing.
I remember when the 8th generation Galant was launched in 1997 and the car garnered fairly warming reviews from the British press. It even won the Japan car of the year award in 1997, apparently.
Apart from the EVO, Mitisubish saloons such as the normal Lancer, Carisma, Galant and Sigma were never really popular in the UK. Even though it looked like a BMW 7-Series, the 8th gen Galant didn't sell very well, either. By 2002 Mitsubishi stopped selling the Galant in the UK.
Same for me, the 8th is the best. Really good-looking car! Sporty, yet still elegant...
