Which used Mitsubishi Galant estate should I buy?

The 2.0-litre GLS is the best engine. It has a healthy 134bhp and copes well with the extra weight of the estate over the saloon. Performance is reasonable and you'll get a competitive average fuel consumption of around 34.0mpg.

The saloon's excellent equipment list is carried over to the estate, so you'll get alloy wheels, twin front airbags, sunroof, remote central locking alarm, cruise control and four electric windows as standard.

The only other choice you have is the 2.5-litre V6. It's a bit disappointing as a sporty model because it's only a second quicker to 60mph than the 2.0-litre. That said, you don't lose too much in the way of fuel economy, because you'll still get 31.0mpg.

What you do gain with the V6, though, is more kit. On top of GLS trim you get air-conditioning, side airbags and a CD changer.
