Mitsubishi unveils the all-new Montero Sport – News

Mid-size SUV prices start at 93,000 Dh

Mitsubishi, one of Japan’s leading automakers, is meeting the needs of adventurers and active families with a game-changing new sport utility vehicle in its class – the all-new Montero Sport.

The new Montero Sport takes on a more refined and powerful appearance, complemented by a refreshed interior that offers quality and comfort. Overall improved cabin technology with a new, easy-to-read 8-inch color LCD display and a power tailgate that allows users to open and close the tailgate with a smartphone app.

The all-new Montero Sport is a new generation mid-size SUV developed according to a concept of “stylish and comfortable off-road SUV”.

The full off-road SUV offers a refined exterior design, high-quality vehicle performance, a comfortable interior, comparable best-in-class environmental performance and an array of comprehensive advanced safety features.

Mitsubishi’s signature Dynamic Shield front view design concept has evolved further on the new Montero Sport, ensuring good visibility, emphasizing the feeling of fullness with the headlights continuing from the front grille and lamps combined with the corners of the bumpers.

The vehicle’s top cowling features a deeper front face, while a stronger and more powerful chrome parts design projects a more refined and sophisticated appearance.

Powered by a robust 3.0-liter MIVEC V6 engine, the Montero Sport features an 8-speed automatic transmission for a smoother, more luxurious ride and improved fuel economy. Sporty cruise control and paddle shifters that allow the driver to change gears with a press, without removing their hand from the steering wheel, add to driving comfort.

The Montero Sport is equipped with comprehensive active and passive safety functions. MMC’s RISE * 3 crash-safe body design and a total of seven SRS airbags provide occupants with exceptional passive safety.

The new Montero Sport retains the Super-Select 4WD-II system which provides optimum traction on all surfaces and confident driving characteristics.

Off-road mode with a newly designed switch on 4WD models improves off-road performance and self-extraction capability through integrated control of engine power, transmission settings and horsepower braking.

The all-new Monetro Sport uses an even more advanced version of MMC’s Super-Select 4WD-II four-wheel drive system. This is complemented by the new off-road mode (the first on a Mitsubishi model), which offers even better off-road performance and stability depending on the road surface, and by Hill Descent Control (the first on a Mitsubishi model). Pressing the HDC mode selector activates HDC, which automatically applies the brakes to maintain the current speed downhill at 2 km / h – 20 km / h. This allows the driver to concentrate on steering and descend slopes with greater safety without having to manually apply the brakes.

Handling is stable and precise on and off-road, in all kinds of weather and driving conditions, thanks to selectable 2WD and 4WD modes, OFF-ROAD MODE, intelligent assistance in rough conditions, advanced suspension and exceptional clearance.

Using the drive mode selector, the driver can switch between 2WD (2H) and 4WD (4H) with the convenience of on-the-fly shifting up to 100 km / h. When conditions get rough, the driver can lock the center differential by entering the 4HLc setting for rough terrain or the 4LLc setting for inclines, mud and sand.

Plus, Active Stability & Traction Control independently regulates the braking force of the wheels when cornering to help maintain excellent vehicle stability when needed. It also optimizes traction to prevent loss of torque whenever wheel slip is detected by controlling engine power and applying braking force to the spinning wheels.

In addition to its handling, the Montero Sport offers a best-in-class 5.6m turning radius, which is surprisingly small for a vehicle of this size, making it particularly easy to park and drive.

On the outside, sophisticated LED headlights and daytime running lights contribute to an attractive, high-quality personality. The dynamic LED taillights of the Montero Sport boldly proclaim that this is no ordinary SUV.

Prices for the all-new Montero Sport 20MY range from 93,900 Dh (excluding VAT) for the baseline to 130,000 AED (excluding VAT) for the fully loaded premium highline.
