The 8th generation Mitsubishi Galant (and station wagon version, named the Legnum) were produced from 1996 – 2002 and were met with high praise, the Legnum taking the Japanese Car of the Year prize in 1997.

The Galant and Legnum VR-4 are the top spec version of the sedan and wagon respectively, with a 2.5L twin turbo 4WD engine and most models featuring the Active Yaw Control system as seen on the Lancer Evolution, which detects yaw changes (i.e. if the car is turning or spinning) and controls the cars diffs accordingly to aid in control and handling. Most models feature 208kW (280hp) and come with either a 5 speed manual gearbox, or 5 speed tiptronic transmission.

Standard and optional features can include ABS brakes, dual or quad airbags, leather interior, Recaro interior, Momo steering wheel, carbon interior trim, Active Yaw Control, stability control and traction control.

Series 1 (1996 and 1997) models only carried the VR-4 name. All series 1 5 speed tiptronic autos had Active Yaw Control, Traction Control and Stability Control. All series 1 5 speed manuals had Active Yaw Control, but no Traction Control or Stability Control, and for series 1’s the manual version had 15kW (20hp) more power.
