The Mitsubishi Montero Sport has been a popular choice for those who are looking for a futuristic-looking SUV that comes jam-packed. The Japanese automaker has steadily upgraded the model since its initial release in the Philippine market to be what it is today. With that said, here are a couple of features found in the Mitsubishi Montero Sport that just make sense today.
To add more convenience to the SUV, the Japanese automaker has given the GT variants of the Mitsubishi Montero Sport a power tailgate. A sensible addition to the vehicle that just makes sense given its pricing. The power tailgate also comes with a kick to open or close function that makes it easier to load and unload cargo without you having to lift a finger. Mitsubishi has designed the system to work on the corners of the vehicle. The rationale behind this is to avoid animals such as dogs and cast from unknowingly activating the senors. A clever design that will save you from the rear opening without you wanting it to.
Digital instrument cluster
With the recent facelift to the Montero Sport, Mitsubishi Philippines has given the popular SUV a new instrument cluster. Out with the old and in with the new as the digital display is now customizable with three presets available. The display can highlight the speedometer, the tachometer, and the other being a dial-type layout of critical information. While there is a little bit of a delay between what is shown and your input it’s still an innovative feature for a futuristic SUV.
220v power socket
Another feature that just makes sense in the Mitsubishi Montero Sport is the addition of a 220v power socket. As a futuristic vehicle, it needs provisions for possible future needs. The socket allows the passengers to run much larger devices that simply can’t run off the 12v USB socket. It’s a handy feature to have especially if you want to convert the rear of the vehicle to your mobile office as the socket allows you to charge a laptop. Forward-thinking by Mitsubishi as this feature could also become useful in emergency situations where there is no electricity available.
Mitsubishi Control App
Mitsubishi Philippines has also doubled down on the futuristic aspect of the Montero Sport by creating a mobile phone application that lets you control certain features of the vehicle. The Mitsubishi Control App lets you open and close the tailgate of the vehicle, turn on the headlights, turn on the engine, raise and lower the windows, and activate its car find system. It can also keep track of other metrics of your vehicle such as its fuel consumption and when it’s time for it to be serviced. For a car with a futuristic design, the mobile control app feature makes sense as it makes integrating your smartphone with the SUV much easier.
360-degree multi-around view camera
Last but certainly not least is the 360-degree multi-around view camera that Mitsubishi has added to the vehicle. While the feature is already available in more affordable models in the Philippines it just makes sense for the SUV given its futuristic appearance. Not only does the new camera system let you see around the vehicle but it also makes parking much easier as you can maximize the space around you. The new feature is available for the GLS and GT models making the SUV even more appealing for those who want a tech-packed vehicle.
