2012 Mitsubishi Galant: At A Glance (Press Release)

2012 Mitsubishi Galant: At A Glance

The Mitsubishi Galant – a handsome mid-size Japanese luxury sports sedan with seating for five – returns for the 2012 model year as one of the most impressive value propositions in the segment.

Though it may be low priced, the entry-level ES model features a comprehensive list of standard features. A splendid-sounding 6 speaker, 140-watt AM/FM/CD sound system with MP3 playback capability and auxiliary input; air conditioning; automatic headlamp shut off; cruise control; keyless entry system; engine immobilizer; power windows, mirrors and door locks; and an integrated key and key fob with trunk release and panic are all included.

At just $24,299, the Galant SE includes an impressive degree of standard luxury features including a DVD-based touch-screen navigation system with rear view backup camera; a power glass sunroof; Bluetooth® hands-free phone system; 18-inch alloy wheels; heated front seats; 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat; and a 650-watt (max) Rockford-Fosgate® Acoustic Design audio system with auxiliary audio input jack and a 3-month pre-paid subscription to SIRIUS® satellite radio as well as numerous other convenient upscale touches.

The top-flight Galant SE with Leather Package (MSRP $25,299) adds sumptuous leather seating surfaces as well as a sporty rear lip spoiler to this stylish 4-door built with pride at Mitsubishi’s factory in Normal, Illinois.

Thanks to its 16-valve 2.4-liter SOHC 4-cylinder engine featuring Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control System (MIVEC), along with a 4-speed Sportronic automatic transmission that allows the driver the option to manually make gear changes, the 2012 Mitsubishi Galant is a fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient 4-door sedan that delivers an impressive highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg. This engine produces a full 160 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 157 lb.-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

Passengers in the 2012 Galant can enjoy a very smooth and tranquil ride inside the whisper-quiet cabin thanks to its well-engineered platform that keeps sound intrusion to a minimum. In addition, the thoughtfully designed independent suspension system – a MacPherson strut/coil spring up front and a tightly packaged low-mount multi-link design in the rear- soaks up road irregularities with ease along with providing responsive and composed handling.

All Galant models come equipped with an advanced dual-stage front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with front passenger occupant sensors and dual action inflators; front seat-mounted side impact air bags; side front and rear curtain air bags; an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD); Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control Logic (TCL) and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

The midsize Galant luxury sports sedan is scheduled to go out of production following the 2012 model year.
