The Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 won the 1996 Car of the Year award in Japan. This model offers just one engine for its front-wheel and four-wheel drives. The outstanding feature of this Mitsubishi Galant is the GDI engine on the two-wheel drive model, a revolutionary engine that injects the petrol directly into the cylinders.
The 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder DOHC engine delivers 147hp and 131.6 lb-ft of torque. The VR-G Touring is the sporty grade of this 2-door model, sharing the top-of-the-range position with the VR-G Exceed. The VR-G Touring, despite its lack of power, provides an attractive well-balanced drive.
There is a choice of transmission between 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission with sports mode. The 4-wheel drive VR-4 is powered by a 2.5-liter V6 DOHC twin-turbo 6A13 engine boasting 276hp and 267.6 lb-ft of torque. It is an engine with a truly overpowering performance.
