The Mitsubishi Montero Sport is undoubtedly one of the best midsize SUVs available today in the local market, competing against the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Nissan Terra, Isuzu mu-X, Ford Everest, among others.
The Mitsubishi Montero Sport is currently offered in four variants that each have a distinct feature to suit various needs. With that in mind, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) gives us a rundown on what makes each Mitsubishi Montero Sport variant unique.
The 7-seater Mitsubishi Montero Sport
The base GLX 2.4 4x2 MT variant is described by MMPC as ‘The Purist.’ Despite innovations on automatic transmissions, driving a respected SUV like the Montero Sport with a manual transmission will always be a classic.
This variant uses a 6-speed manual transmission with variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) and Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control (MIVEC).
On the other hand, ‘The Multitasker’ is the name given for the GLS 2.4 4x2 AT variant. This variant is capable of helping drivers get through the day thanks to its 8-speed automatic transmission with sport mode and auto brake hold.
It also comes with an infotainment system that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto six speakers, and Tomtom offline navigation.
The Montero Sport is an SUV that comes with both style and power
As for the GT 2.4 4x2 AT variant, Mitsubishi described it as ‘The Top Gun.’ Just like every top gun, he or she knows how to enjoy the good things in life and find perfect ways to repay his or her hard work.
The GT 2.4 4x4 AT variant comes with more exclusive features such as distinct 2-tone alloy wheels, second-row USB charging points, more airbags, a more refined LCD instrument meter display, power tailgate, and dual-cushioning leather seats.
Last but certainly not least, the top-spec GT 2.4 4x4 AT is described by Mitsubishi as ‘The No-Compromise.’ This variant is equipped with only the best of the best in areas such as performance, technology, and safety feature.
Undeniable SUV presence on the road
‘The No-Comprise’ Montero Sport is equipped with high-end features that include electronic Super Select 4WD-II with off-road mode traction control, a 360-degree around-view monitor, forward collision mitigation (FCM), blind-spot warning with lane change assist (BSW with LCA), ultrasonic misacceleration mitigation system (UMS), and rear cross-traffic alert.

Know more about Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2021
One of the popular SUVs in the Philippines is the Montero Sport by Japanese auto giant Mitsubishi. It continually hits the list of best-selling cars in the country every year. Its popularity continues to grow because it is a reliable, tough, midsize body-on-frame SUV on and off-road, and a family car. It is not just a symbol of social status. The Mitsubishi Montero Sport, as a third-generation model, displays its benchmark for the brand's contemporary lineup, which is the 'Dynamic Shield' grille that shows a completely redesigned front. The new Mitsubishi Montero Sport features chrome linings that cover the large air intakes and stretch forth to the fog lamps, complemented by a sleek tail and headlights. Inside the cabin, top-notch variants and additional sportier trims for GT variants get to have leather-wrapped seats. For entertainment and central control, it is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Powering the Mitsubishi Montero Sport is the all-new 2.4L Diesel Engine, 4 Cylinder 16 Valve DOHC. The task of the Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control system (MIVEC) is to achieve low fuel consumption and exhaust emissions but a high-power output. Similar to the model it replaced, the Mitsubishi Montero Sport is L200 or Strada pickup based. The chassis and half of its front body structure are the same as its pickup sibling. It still uses the three-link live axle coil spring for the rear suspension and the independent double-wishbone front suspension from the model it supersedes. It comes with drum-in-disc rear brakes and ventilated front disc brakes. It is a standard for all variants to have 18-inch alloy wheels. The Mitsubishi Montero Sport features standard airbags for both driver and passenger, three-point seat belts for all the seven occupants, ABS with EBD, and an ISOFIX child seat anchors on the second row. Additional features for the GT variant consist of Trailer Stability Assist, knee airbag for drivers, and curtain airbags.
