    Default Accord CL-9 vs Galant VR4 clash of the titans

    ok guys

    two of the most awsome machines which have graced and left a lasting impact in our lives.

    mitsubisi galant vr4 vs honda accord cl9

    love to see your comparisions and comments on which of the two you prefer and why?

    this is not necessarily a galant vs accord war starter rather an appreciation thread for these titans. Both are just so awsome they leave you in awe once you see them in their prime state and class.

    pics are taken from pakwheels ads. hope the owners dont mind.

    Looks wise, its the taste of the person, galant is very agressive looking shark shape face. While cl9 has the urban mordern sophisticated look.

    Both cars are comfortable, but as some one above said, something about the galant wins me over
    i didnt think the vr4 is that powerful. i am assuming its comparable to its sibling the mitsubishi evo?

    Last month i almost purchased a 2005 reg 2007 immaculate condition 1.8 ltr super saloon shark shaped dwan import galant run on petrol first owner 70k km on the meter for Rs 1,250,000 i was trying to save 250k .
    Cars of this type get sold fast. wish i had taken pics to share with you. i test drove it as the owner lived near cineplex seaview and it boosted with jaw dropping acceleration on the way to spicy bite from village restaurant. the cabin noise was serene. the interior was clean though wouldve preferred leather seats and a navi-dvd screen as opposed to wood grain look dash. atleast it was a mix of black with dark grey which i prefer over beige.
    my opinion is that its far better value then to keep a premio , cl7 or even a camry 2004 old shape.

    The car you are describing must be clean indeed. In my opinion these cars are not made for "value". If your a car lover then you will own these cars without thinking of resale, if your just another car owner and care about resale, then these cars are not made for you.

    The 1.8 liter you drove, make that 2.5 liter, and imagine the additional power you would have. Now add two small turbos on it and make it awd for traction purposes.

    The Vr4 is comparable to its sibling Mitsubishi Evo yes. Only thing is that the VR4 is sort of a big brother, heavy weight car while Evo is lighter. Hp wise both cars are the same 26ish/280ish hp stock.

    Evo will be ahead in a race due to its light weight. Also the later model evos, evo 8/9 are equipped with better type of awd system. Still a VR4 can surely be neck to neck with an evo if tuned just a little bit.

    If i had a cl9 i would say that its unfair for Honda, to be compared to a top of the line galant with a cl9. Cl9 does not have that much grunt. Either give cl9 a turbo system for punch and an awd system for traction and then see which car is better, or take both of these away from the galant and compare the cl9 with the NA 2.5liter galant. I think comparing a vr4 with a euro r is right, as both of them are top of their respective category. We have many euro r around, sadly not so many vr4's to see what would happen.

    This was on the performance basis, if you look at the drive, galant wins most of the people around.
