The 2012 Galant lineup consists of two different models: the ES and SE. Both are powered by a 160-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed Sportronic automatic transmission.
All Galants come standard with front seat-mounted side airbags, side curtain airbags that cover front and rear outboard occupants, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and active stability control.
Standard equipment on the ES is quite generous compared to other mid-size sedans, and includes air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, a height-adjustable driver's seat, power windows, locks and mirrors, a power trunk release, a trunk pass-through and a 140-watt MP3-compatible CD sound system with six speakers.
The SE adds a sportier appearance thanks to 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, a chrome exhaust and dark-chrome headlamps reflectors. Luxury equipment inside includes heated front seats and mirrors, a sunroof, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, navigation with a rearview backup camera, a 650-watt Rockford Acoustic stereo, a power driver's seat, steering-wheel audio controls, an alarm system and "black wood print" interior trim.
Popular options include leather seating, remote engine start and an iPod adapter.
