The all-new Montero Sport is Mitsubishi's midsize SUV. Ever since its introduction in the Philippines several years ago, it continues to gain popularity not just as a status symbol but as a family car and a tough, reliable vehicle on and off the road.
The 3rd generation Montero Sport has a totally redesigned front fascia showcasing Mitsubishi's 'Dynamic Shield' grille which is the benchmark of their future models. It's embezzled with chrome linings that surrounds the huge air intakes and extends up to the fog lamps; complemented by sleek LED head and tail lights. Inside, seats for the top-of-the-line variants are wrapped in leather with added sportier trims for the GT variant. A 6.75-inch screen serves as the entertainment for its driver and passengers.
As for its engine, the all-new Montero Sport is powered by a new 2.4L 4-cylinder DOHC 16V MIVEC VG Turbocharged clean diesel power plant. MIVEC, which stands for Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system, is responsible to achieve high power output, low fuel consumption, and low exhaust emissions.
Safety features of the all-new Montero Sport include Blind Spot Warning system, 8 SRS Airbags, Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist, and Mitsubishi Active Stability and Traction Control. GT variants will have Forward Collision Mitigation system which will reduce, if not eliminate, chances of unintended collisions.
