As part of the Renault-Nissan alliance, Mitsubishi currently has access to a wide range of technologies and platforms. While that doesn’t necessarily mean the company would spend the money to resurrect the Galant, at least now we have reason to believe that a brand new sedan is possible. Not now but one day. Probably.
Our good friends at Kolesa.ru came up with the idea of a modern Galant successor and even at first glance their renderings look stunning. The virtual car manages to keep a connection with its predecessors and update itself at the same time. Nothing too pretentious or aggressive, just a job well done.
The ninth generation Galant remained on sale until 2012 and was the last true Galant on the market. The tenth generation model was essentially a rebadged Mitsubishi Lancer for Japan and Brunei and had nothing to do with the original model.
Looking at these renderings, we see more resemblances to the eighth generation Galant that remains (Probably) our favorite. Straight lines, a clean design language and silky V6 engines are what this sedan (and wagon in some markets) stood for. If you could handle some rusting issues this was a great car.
We have to admit that we also see Renault Talisman influences in these renderings, but that’s a price we’ll gladly pay just to see the Galant on the road in modern form. In fact, the French sedan is based on the only Renault-Nissan alliance platform that can be used for a revived Galant.
