The Galant is a sound car that competes with better ones, and by now it is quite outdated. It has a spirited powertrain, but we were not overly impressed with the two versions we tested. Handling is secure but not agile. The ride is a bit choppy and stiff, even on smooth pavement. A wide turning circle makes parking awkward. The 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine is responsive enough but noisy, and it returns 23 mpg. 2012 is the last year for the Galant.
