If you don't expect a lot out of the driving experience, the Galant will reward you with well-rounded competence. The sole engine in the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is the 160-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder, with a four-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is respectable, too, at 20 mpg city, 27 highway.

With the four, the Galant is generally pleasant to drive, provided you don't push it too hard. The four-cylinder engine has "more-than-adequate power for most situations," according to ConsumerGuide; they clock a 0-60-mph run in 9 seconds. Car and Driver comments, “the four-cylinder is acceptable.” Automobile Magazine finds the four-speed automatic "remarkably responsive.”

On all versions, the steering is nicely weighted, brake modulation good, and pedal travel short. Edmunds finds the standard Galant to be “one of the more fun-to-drive family sedans,” and says it “remains flat and predictable and feels smaller than it is.” ConsumerGuide deems the base versions "reasonably nimble," but also points out that they "don't control body motions as well on their softer suspensions."

Conclusion

The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant isn't fun to drive by any measure, but it's responsive enough for most basic sedan shoppers.

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.
