2008 Mitsubishi Galant vs. Its Competition

2008 Mitsubishi Galant 4-door Sedan ES Front Exterior View
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Nissan Altima is the closest competitor to the 2008 Mitsubishi Galant; it comes in four- and six-cylinder versions, with aggressive styling and great front-drive handling.

The Honda Accord has been vastly improved--if you can imagine that--with dramatic new styling and a fantastic new cabin for the 2008 model year.

Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Malibu has made the most dramatic transformation, from rental-car fodder to beautifully styled, taut-handling family sedan, with a strong V-6 backed by a four-cylinder and a hybrid version, too.
