MISSISSAUGA, Ont. (November 09, 2009) – For 2010 Mitsubishi has streamlined the Galant lineup. The new model year offers a single choice, the Galant ES, which has received exterior improvements, interior upgrades and added safety equipment.

The Mitsubishi Galant ES, the only model available for 2010, is a well equipped, front wheel drive, four door, five passenger midsize sedan. The ES is powered by a 2.4 litre, SOHC, MIVEC 4 cylinder engine producing160 hp @ 5500 rpm and 157 lb.-ft torque @ 4000 rpm, coupled with a 4-speed Sportronic® automatic transmission. Ideally suited to a young family, Galant ES is well engineered, comfortable, fuel efficient, roomy, safe and represents excellent value in this competitive segment.

Suspension & Safety – A Robust Platform

Built on a steel unibody platform using RISE technology, Galant ES is designed for sporty driving, and the body structure is tweaked for greater rigidity, which enhances ride and handling. The proven MacPherson strut front suspension system attaches to a sub-frame with a large, rigid cross member for responsive handling and reduced noise, vibration and harshness. A low mounted, multi-link rear suspension features stiff hydro-formed cross members that minimize flex and help reduce road noise. Side curtain air bags are included in the comprehensive safety package as well as advanced front air bags with occupant sensors, front seat-mounted side-impact air bags, a LATCH system for CRS, engine immobilizer and a tire pressure monitoring system. Plus, Galant ES is equipped with ventilated front and solid rear disc brakes, an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control (TCL).
