If there’s one vehicular template that Filipinos naturally gravitate to, it’s the midsize 7-seater diesel-powered SUV. It has the seating and cargo capacity most families need, the durability and fuel-efficiency of a diesel engine, the high ride height for excellent visibility and for fording floods and bad roads and, last but not least, a strong and assertive presence on the road.    

The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4×4 GT checks all the boxes, hailing from a strong automotive heritage known for its world-class rally-bred engineering.

Sporting a refreshed version of Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield design language, the Montero Sport exudes a strong and bold image complimented by distinctive lines, new LED rear combination lamps and shark-fin antenna.

Inside, you’ll feel an elevated experience with the Montero Sport’s spacious interior, premium leather seats with double layered cushioning and host of convenient features that promotes a comfortable drive.

With the global tagline of “Elevate your Journey,” the Mitsubishi Montero is armed with innovative technological features that brings driving experience to whole new level. These include smart keyless system with start/stop engine button, and a smartphone-link 8-inch display multimedia infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is also a new 8-inch color LCD instrument panel , a dual-zone automatic climate control system, adaptive cruise control which lets you set a desired distance between your vehicle and the car in front.

Other new features include Mitsubishi Remote Control App that allows you to control the vehicle using your smartphone. With the app, you can open/close doors, power windows, switch on/off engine, headlights, position lamp, and hazard lamp with just one swipe. The Mitsubishi Remote Control App also reminds you in case you forgot to lock your doors and switch off your headlights. It also helps you locate your vehicle in a large parking lot, displays various information about your vehicle and provides you troubleshooting solutions when the vehicle does not respond to the remote control.

The new Montero Sport also comes with a new power tailgate that gives hands-free access to open and close the tailgate automatically by placing your foot in front of the rear bumper sensors in an up-down motion — very helpful when your hands are full.

The Montero is also packed with advance safety features such as the 7 SRS Airbags, Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist that prevents you from sideswiping other vehicles when changing lanes, Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) that reduces accidents when abruptly pressing the accelerator during a standstill position, Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM) that alerts the driver with a possible risk of collision, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, as well as Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control for better control in negotiating steep inclines.

Apart from the array of feature offerings, the commitment of Mitsubishi Motors transcends to the aftersales experience. The brand has 56 dealerships nationwide with highly trained technicians and service advisers to make sure that the ownership experience is easy and hassle free.

Through the ongoing Mitsubishi Mid-Year low down promo (until August 31), you can bring home a brand new Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4WD GT for as low as 98K down payment. For cash buyers, you can save as high as Php 230,000 and lastly, a 0% DP for 36 months is also an option that customers can avail of.
