For 2021, the seven-seater SUV now comes with a 360-degree multi-view around the camera as standard for the GLS 2WD AT variant upwards.

As is typical of vehicles in this category, the Montero Sport has multiple blind spots on account of its size, and these can potentially cause accidents on the road. The new camera setup gives drivers a complete view of the vehicle’s surroundings, which aids in safer maneuvers.

Mitsubishi’s Active Stability and Traction Control (M-ASTC) is also offered by default on all but the base variant, allowing owners to more confidently tackle changing driving conditions over a variety of terrain.

Comfort also takes even greater precedence than ever, with 8-way power seat adjustment, making it easier for occupants to find the perfect riding position especially for long journeys.

The GT 2WD variant has this feature for the driver’s seat, while the range-topping GT 4WD trim has both front seats equipped with power adjustment as standard.

Various expressway projects opening up means more roads to enjoy, and the Montero Sport lets you take advantage of this by equipping the Montero Sport with cruise control across the range.

Power tailgate

The GT 4WD takes this even further with adaptive cruise control which automatically adjusts cruising speed according to the vehicle’s distance from other cars in front.

Other convenience features that customers shouldn’t miss are the power tailgate feature with hands-free access and height memory function, an 8-inch color instrument cluster, a new multimedia entertainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and remote functions with the Mitsubishi Motors smartphone app.

The best part is that the Mitsubishi Montero Sport will be priced the same for 2021, starting at Php 1,568,000 for the GLX 2WD M/T and Php 1,728,000 for the GLS 2WD A/T. The GT variants carry a sticker price of Php 1,928,000 for the 2WD AT and Php 2,450,000 for the 4WD A/T trim.

Mitsubishi Montero Sport

One of the most known SUVs in the Philippines is the Mitsubishi Montero Sport. 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.
