Anti-lock brakes, dual-stage front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and side front and rear curtain airbags are all now standard on the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant, along with electronic stability control.
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 frontal and side impacts. However, the IIHS rates it "poor" in the agency's seat-based rear impact test.
Outward visibility, sometimes an issue even on sedans, is good on the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant. “Thanks to a broad rear window and low trunk, rear sightlines are excellent,” observes Cars.com.
