Al Habtoor Motors introduces The All New 2007 Mitsubishi Galant in the UAE

After years of producing some of the finest passenger cars, Mitsubishi introduces the world to a new car. It marks its triumphant entry into the highly competitive 2.4-liter segment with the All New Mitsubishi Galant that’s all set to stun the automotive industry as well as motoring aficionados around the world and especially here in the UAE. Slated to be powerfully agile it takes the driver as well as passenger to the next level of performance and luxury like never before.

Enthusiastic about the launch of the new Mitsubishi Galant, Roger Ghosn, Marketing Manager of Al Habtoor Motors, commented, “With the launch of the All New Mitsubishi Galant, we will be expanding our line-up in the highly competitive 2.4-liter saloon car category.”

Speaking on the occasion, Shintaro Hirano, Assistant General Manager, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation – Middle East Liaison Office, added “with the launch of the 2.4 liter Galant, we will be adding more muscle to our saloon line-up so that our customers in the UAE will have a Mitsubishi car that matches the need of every kind of customer.”

To start with, its beauty is combined with modern style and advanced technology that is highlighted by a sophisticated new front-end treatment. While the interior reflects absolute refinement, the ride and handling provide unprecedented levels of comfort and offers a more engaging driving experience with a sporty feel. The new Mitsubishi Galant also boasts advanced safety features like the standard side curtain air bags, which have been added to the comprehensive safety package that also includes advanced front air bags with occupant sensors and front seat-mounted side-impact air bags.

When it comes to looks, the All New Mitsubishi Galant is a real head turner. It sports a stylish grille with chrome surround, plus a great-looking front fascia and bumper. Inside, its luxury is accented with chrome-ringed gauges lit by ice-blue LEDs. There’s also a fully automatic climate-tuned air conditioning system. The Galant ES models add luxurious appointments like driver’s 8-way adjustable power seats, dual heated front seats, and rich, supple high quality leather upholstery.

For those who crave for performance, the all new Galant treats them with a spirited drive. Thanks to the remarkable and extremely responsive 2.4-liter MIVEC engine that delivers the right mix of power, performance and efficiency. It produces an impressive 170 hp at 5,500 rpm. Furthermore, the smooth 4-speed INVECS-II with Sports Mode transmission which allows clutch-less manual shift, promises the driver an exhilarating drive.

To make the drive absolutely safe for the passengers as well as the driver, the all new Mitsubishi Galant uses a state-of-the-art technology to protect all occupants with a sophisticated 6-air bag system. Both driver and front seat passenger air bags have two-stage inflators. This system measures a variety of factors, including seat position and force of the collision, then automatically selects which inflation setting is optimum for the impact. Other safety measures include RISE (Refined Impact Safety Evolution) body that offers improved structural rigidity to prevent longitudinal twisting; integrated, energy absorbing crumple zones: strategically applied reinforcements at key body points and steel side impact door beams for total peace of mind.

The Mitsubishi Galant adds safety equipment in the form of a tire pressure monitoring system for ES, LS and GTS models equipped with alloy wheels. There are also the ABS disc brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution for sure footed braking during any kind of emergency.

“The All New Mitsubishi Galant is definitely going to enthrall the customers in the UAE with an all new driving experience, be it the interior, exterior, safety or the performance, everything about the new Galant is very much All New” comments Mr. Ghosn.
