The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu remains one of the strongest players in the mid-size sedan segments, though its rivals are certainly worth a look. The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is adequate in most respects—and surprisingly comfortable. But it's not exciting or class-leading in any way.
