Facelift for Galant range

MITSUBISHI'S 2000 model year facelifted and better specified Galant range sees the introduction of a new entry-level model at almost £1,000 cheaper than the current version. Air conditioning is now standard across the range, as are electric windows, electric heated door mirrors and remote central locking.

On sale from next month, the new entry 2.0-litre 134bhp GLX, available in five-speed manual only, costs £16,400 on-the-road, compared to the former 2.0-litre GLS at £17,455. The GLS range continues and carries a price premium of about £150, but Mitsubishi says this is more than compensated for with the extra specification and safety features, such as driver and passenger airbags, ABS, and alarm system. The on-the-road price of the 2.0 GLS manual is £18,000, while the automatic costs £19,150 - this increases to £18,900 and £20,050 for the estate models.

The new 2.4-litre petrol GDI 147bhp engine is introduced to the range as a new trim level, and the saloon models cost £19,600 (manual) and £20,750 (automatic), while the estate models cost £20,500 (manual) and £21,650 (automatic). The 161bhp 2.5 V6 models increase in price by about £300.
