That's not to say that I disagree with you though, it's just not very likely for Mitsubishi to suddenly get their stuff together and make a good looking sedan that is competitive within its segment outside of the Evo.
Hyundai (and to a lesser extent Kia due to platform sharing) did it. I think the Galant didn't do well because basically the Lancer is basically the Galant now (in Japan, the Lancer is the Galant Fortis) and the upsizing of the Lancer basically pushed the Galant out. The Lancer is too small of a car here to replace the Galant, hence no mainstream product offering. I think Mitsubishi has a one market strategy (Asia) and they try to apply it to the rest of the world.
