Right now we decided to make the comparison fight between two very similar and yet very popular Japanese marquees that are known for their great engineering and design excellence. So now we will get into the fight between 2012 Mitsubishi Galant and the 2012 Mazda Mazda3. I see your hands shking in anticipation already! So let’s dig in.

First of all, the price perspective is almost equal. Mitsubishi will cost you a little more, on average around $2.000 more costly than the Mazda 3, which has the average price of $17.000. But it is till not that dramatic as we’ve seen in other situations. Galant can come in two different engines, the 155-horsepower 2.4-liter I-4 the regular gas one or the 160-horsepower 2.4-liter I-4 also regular gas. For Mazda 3 you can ask for 167-horsepower 2.5-liter I-4 coming as a regular gas, the 148-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 also regular gas, or the 155-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 the regular gas engine as well. Though Galant comes only with 4-speed automatic, while for Mazda3 you can get the 5-speed or the 6-speed automatic or manual transmissions. Moreover, Mazda3 also offers greater fuel economy.
So Mazda3 beats the Galant model completely!
