The 2008 Mitsubishi Galant is essentially identical to the 2004 model, and that's one of its downfalls, according to reviews from around the Web and the experts at TheCarConnection.com. It's a fine-looking car--but in the past four years, the Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu, and Honda Accord have raised the bar with hot new styles.

Car and Driver simply refers to its “confused exterior styling.” As Edmunds puts it, the Galant is now a "very dark horse in a stable filled with thoroughbreds." Cars.com says, “Hampering the Galant's attempt to attract buyers is its relatively forgettable looks; the front end is bland and could be at home on any number of sedans.” With the Ralliart edition, Automobile says the 18-inch wheels "give the Galant more dignity than a typical mid-size rental, but don't expect the neighborhood kids to follow you home on their bicycles."

The interior of the 2008 Mitsubishi Galant is covered in industrial-looking trim, and in general, the dark, plastic-addicted cabin needs a richer look and feel. Edmunds believes it gets lost in the crowd of its competitors when it comes to interior styling, but it still has attractive qualities worth noting, such as the "cascading center console, blue backlighting, white-faced gauges and metallic or wood-grained accents," which make it "stylish in a contemporary way." Automobile, however, isn't impressed with its interior styling, and Cars.com goes so far as to call the interior design "unfortunate." Cars.com also dislikes the fact that "buttons are arranged in an anomalous cluster of bizarre shapes."

Conclusion

Essentially unchanged since 2004, the 2008 Mitsubishi Galant has been passed by other family sedans that have sharper, cleaner styling.

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.
