New Galant

1973

ニュー ギャラン

The second-generation Galant, dubbed the New Galant and Colt was removed from the nameplate, was launched in June 1973. With its bigger body, the New Galant moved its vehicle class. While inheriting the design image of its predecessor, the New Galant incorporated softer, more curvaceous surfaces to give it a milder, more sedan-like flavor. The New Galant's larger body provided more generous interior space as emphasis was placed on comfort to separate it from the Lancer series. The equipment specification included a driver's seat with lumbar support and a tilt-adjust steering column, made it with a fully adjustable driving position. The two-door hardtop and four-door sedan were offered with three engines: a 1.6L , and 1.85L or 2.0L engines which all met the 1973 Japanese emission regulations. Improved aerodynamics and braking performance as well as greater body rigidity and beefed up suspension produced a car that delivered feel-good driving with optimally balanced handling and stability and engine performance. Offering comfort and reassurance underpinned by an impact-absorbing body structure and high safety performance, the New Galant was a model worthy of its "personal sedan" moniker.
