The Philippine Highway Patrol Group of Philippine National Police (PNP-HPG) just welcomes a new MPPV (Multi-Purpose Patrol Vehicle) to better enforce the law on the road. The vehicle was shown at the Philippine National Police Headquarters on occasion of the Highway Patrol Group’s 63rd Founding Anniversary. The PNP-HPG MPPV is a model based on the Mitsubishi Montero Sport and also the one among many other units the Japanese government donated to the PNP.

To meet the demands of the HPG for improved capabilities in searching and rescuing missions, the MPPV vehicle was handled at the hands of A-toy Customs 4x4.

The modifications are many which consist of step boards, a steel bumper, all-terrain tires, new wheels, a snorkel in case of flooding condition, and a lift kit for higher ground clearance. The steel bumper is supposed to be used in pursuit intervention technique maneuvers. Some other modifications include a CCTV camera on the roof, a winch used for recovery operations, and powerful foglights to improve safety.

In the car, there’s even enough space for a ladder as well.
