The midsize SUV category is one of the popular segments that a lot of Filipino car buyers go for. Well, this type of vehicle offers a generous amount of space, third-row seats, and powerful engines, making it an ideal choice for big families or those who want a vehicle that can fit many items for business purposes.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport GT
In consideration of its relatively high price point, choosing the body color should be taken into account thoroughly. If you are already planning to get a Mitsubishi Montero Sport, then you have come to the right place. It is one of the best midsize SUVs currently available in the country that must you can consider
Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation (MMPC) offers the Mitsubishi Montero Sport with five colors depending on the model’s variant. To help you make up your mind, we have listed down all the Montero Sport variants with the corresponding available body colors with their additional price, if there are any included.
GLX 2WD MT
The entry-level Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLX colors include the Sterling Silver Metallic, White Diamond, and Jet Black Mica. What we recommend that you look at first before choosing a color for your 7-seater midsize SUV are its standard exterior details. From here, you can choose the body color that blends well with the exterior features of the model.
Looking at the Japanese midsize SUV, its exterior design is dominated by silver and chrome trims from the front to the back. These details can found in the grille, edges of the fog lamp housings, side mirror, front skid plate, sidestep, roof rails, and rear skid plate.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLX Jet Black Mica
Opting for the Mitsubishi Montero Sport Jet Black Mica would help accent all of the said exterior details of the midsize SUV. The only downside of this body color is that you will have a hard time cleaning the vehicle as it is considered one of the most difficult paint jobs to clean as dirt and dust can be seen more easily.
On the other hand, the Mitsubishi Montero Sport Sterling Silver Metallic is quite the opposite. It subtly blends with the chrome and silver trims of the vehicle, creating a bland and monotone appearance. The good thing about Jet Black Mica and Sterling Silver Metallic is that both don’t come with an additional fee.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLX Sterling Silver Metallic
The only body-color option that comes with an extra cost is the White Diamond finish, adding Php 15,000 to the price tag. Just like the Jet Black Mica, the White Diamond body color will accent the standard exterior design features of the vehicle. It is also considered a clean body paint as it can hide dirt accumulated on the road.
Take note that MMPC offers the Mitsubishi Montero Sport with a black interior finish for all variants. The GLX and GLS variants get fabric upholstery, while the two GT variants benefit from a leather finish in the cabin. Pick the body color that you think also suits the interior of the vehicle so you could make the best out of your choice.
GLS 2WD AT
Moving on to the available colors of the Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLS. The Japanese automaker offers this variant with four colors, including Sterling Silver Metallic, White Diamond, Medium Red Mica, and Jet Black Mica, making the red color the only new option as compared to the baseline Montero Sport GLX variant.
The Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLS Medium Red Mica provides a sportier appeal which could be the go-to option for bachelors or those who want to live in the fast lane. It is, however, not as red as you would normally see in a sports car. Looking at this paint finish, it seems to have a shade of maroon which we think could be a good thing or a bad thing.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport GLS Medium Red Mica
If you are drawn to the Medium Red Mica, then today must be your lucky day as MMPC doesn’t include an additional fee for this bright-looking body color option. Meanwhile, the Php 15,000 additional fee for the White Diamond body color option still stands on the mid-spec GLS 2WD AT variant.
Considering that there are not a lot of black trims on the exterior of the Mitsubishi Montero Sport, then opting for the Medium Red Mica might something you need to think about thoroughly first. If you believe that silver, chrome, and red go well together in a vehicle, then maybe this is the hue best for you.
GT 2WD AT
The Mitsubishi Montero Sport GT 2WD colors include the Medium Red Mica, White Diamond, Jet Black Mica, and Graphite Gray Metallic. This GT variant drops the Sterling Silver Metallic body paint option which is available to the two lower variants of the 7-seater midsize SUV, namely the GLX and GLS variants.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport GT 2WD Graphite Gray Metallic
Looking at the Graphite Gray Metallic, its shade looks like something in between the Jet Black Mica and Sterling Silver Metallic. This body color option does not hide or accent the chrome and silver trims of the Mitsubishi Montero Sport to some extent. It is sort of like the middle ground in the body color options available in the model.
If you are considering getting an ambitious color such as the Medium Red Mica, you should keep in mind that most car buyers would go for the popular car colors such as black and white. You could have a more difficult time selling a Mitsubishi Montero Sport with a red color after you decide to sell it after a few years as compared to it with either a White Diamond or Jet Black Mica paint finish.
GT 4WD AT
As for the flagship variant of the Japanese midsize SUV, the Mitsubishi Montero Sport GT 4WD AT, it is available in three colors only, namely the Graphite Gray Metallic, White Diamond, and Jet Black Mica. The takeaway here is that the flashy Medium Red Mica is only available to the vehicle’s GLS 2WD AT and GT 2WD AT variants.
Mitsubishi Montero Sport GT 4WD White Diamond
Since the Graphite Gray Metallic body color is available only on the more expensive GT variants, you should pick this option if you like to look a bit exclusive on the road. Mitsubishi Montero Sports fans will know that if you have this paint finish, then you are that type of person who would pay for the flagship variant of a car model.
And as for the Mitsubishi Montero Sport Jet Black Mica, this dark shade finish is available on all of the midsize SUV’s four variants offered by MMPC. If you are looking for the distinction of GT variants, then black paint might not be your go-to choice. Instead, go for the Graphite Gray Metallic or the White Diamond which adds Php 15,000 to the price tag.
