The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport’s cousin in Thailand is finally revealed with a brand new face lift. After a video announcement and a few leaks from social media, the new Pajero Sport in Thailand is officially unveiled. It will only be a matter of time before the new model, under the Montero Sport name, will be making its way to the Philippines some time soon as stated by Mitsubishi Global.
The midsize SUV has long been a favorite in the market. Offering high ground clearance, a clean cut interior, and a love-it or hate-it exterior. Mitsubishi has opted to extend the model’s presence by reshaping the front facia and giving the rear tail lights a less elongated tail light. The unit will also roll on a new set of diamond cut 18-inch wheels.
Apart from the looks, the new Montero Sport will now come with an all-digital 8-inch LCD gauge cluster. Adding to the entire package is the power tailgate with a new hands-free feature. More advanced features for this model include the ability for your smartphone to notify the driver if his or her doors are unlocked. The aforementioned power tailgate may also be opened and closed via a smartphone, and to top it all off there is a proximity feature that opens and closes the tail gate when the user approaches or leaves the vehicle.
The interior is updated with a floor console and soft padded door handles, and there are now goodies for the back passengers, such as the new AC power outlet added on the existing USB plug at the rear panel of the center console.
Motorists can expect the same level of performance that the previous generation had. The 2.4L MIVEC turbo diesel still comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Driving the facelifted model will be much easier and less anxiety driven because of the lane change assist (LCA) and rear cross traffic alert (RCTA) functions. The Super-Select 4WD-II system makes a return and still delivers optimal traction for most surfaces. The system also comes with a newly designed switch on 4WD models.
The new facelift of the 2020 Montero Sport can’t come fast enough. If anything, aside from getting to see the model up close, a closer look at the gauge cluster will be one of the more interesting things to note since Mitsubishi has yet to put an all-digital gauge cluster onto one of their cars in the Philippines.
