2010 Mitsubishi Galant vs. Its Competition

2010 Mitsubishi Galant
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

One of the Mitsubishi Galant's top rivals is the Kia Optima.

Like the Galant, the Optima doesn't possess a lot of personality, but it's thoroughly competent.

Both vehicles place an emphasis on ride quality above driving dynamics.

The Chevrolet Malibu is an option that feels positively lavish next to the Galant, with a strong V-6 or four-cylinder and a beautiful, refined interior.

The Honda Accord remains at the top of the class, especially for those who value interior appointments and a premium, luxurious feel.

And for those who enjoy driving a bit more, the Nissan Altima has a sportier feel, with more overt styling and better handling.

Quick Specs
The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is adequate in most respects—and surprisingly comfortable. But it's not exciting or class-leading in any way.
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 Kia Optima doesn’t have the excitement of its newest small cars, the Soul and Forte, but it does have strong appeal based in practical attributes like interior space, comfort, and value for the money.
The 2010 Nissan Altima remains one of the sportier choices among mid-size sedans, though if interior space matters, it might not feel as roomy as rivals.
