Mitsubishi Motors launches Galant Fortis – new style sedan in Japan

Mitsubishi Motors announced the launch of the Galant Fortis, a new style sedan, at affiliated dealerships throughout Japan today. Powered by a 2.0-liter engine, two- and four-wheel drive Mitsubishi Galant Fortis is the first new sedan introduced by the company in Japan in seven years. Galant Fortis features enhancing passive and impact safety include a 7-airbag SRS system (driver and front passenger airbags, driver knee airbag, side and curtain airbags); adaptive front lighting (AFS) that improves the driver’s field of vision at night; and rain-sensitive auto wipers. Galant Fortis achieves a global standard in living space with a wider and taller body without any undue stretching of overall length.

With its wider track the packaging reconciles the requirements of stable handling and response with its excellent maneuverability that stems from a minimum turning radius of 5.0 m. Galant Fortis models carry a price tag ranging from 1,785,000 yen ($15,350) to 2,436,000 yen ($20,950).
