SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Five out of five stars for frontal and side impacts for both driver and front passenger
NHTSA

Overall "good" rating
IIHS

impressive crash test scores
Edmunds

The 2008 Mitsubishi Galant achieves the highest crash-test scores in government safety testing.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Galant five stars for front-impact protection; the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the Galant as “good” for front impacts. Both are "impressive crash test scores," Edmunds acknowledges.

Among the standard safety features are dual front airbags, side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags. Also on the roster: four-wheel disc brakes, a tire pressure monitor, daytime running lights, anti-lock brakes (for all models except the DE), and even traction control on the Ralliart. The major omission, as Cars.com points out, is that "an electronic stability system is not available."

Visibility is good, according to Cars.com, on the Mitsubishi Galant for 2008, “Thanks to a broad rear window and low trunk, rear sightlines are excellent.”

Conclusion

Achieving the top ratings possible, the 2008 Mitsubishi Galant is one of the safest cars in its class, but it lacks stability control, and ABS is an option on base versions.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
