TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Mitsubishi introduces new VGT-equipped Montero Sport variants

You already know the new Mitsubishi Montero Sport with variable geometry turbo will come in two variants--the GTV 4x4 and the GLS-V 4x2. So how much do you need to shell out for the sport-ute?

The new Montero Sport 4x4 GTV is available at an introductory price of the P1.688 million while the 4x2 GLS-V variant is at P 1.408 million.

Thanks to the VGT technology, the Montero Sport's 2.5-liter Common Rail Diesel engine's output has been bumped up to 175hp and 350Nm of torque as it reduces the lag time that's associated with standard turbochargers while optimizing the engine's efficiency and performance at any engine speed.

You can take the Montero Sport GTV off-road as it is equipped with the same Super Select 4WD system found in the Pajero, allowing the driver to switch from 2WD to high-range 4WD even at speeds of up to 100kph and back with just a flick of the lever. The Montero Sport GTV is also equipped with a hybrid-type limited slip differential, which makes sure that power will be transmitted as positive traction to all wheels.

Paired to the GTV variant is a five-speed INVECS-II automatic transmission with Sportronic mode equipped with Magnesium Alloy paddle shifters to give the vehicle a more spirited and exhilarating drive.

To help distinguish the VGT-equipped Montero Sport from its more plebian brethren on the road, it flaunts a new honeycomb-type front grille that sports a GTV emblem to give it a more rugged and aggressive look, front fog lamps with silver ring garnish, roof rails, tube-type running boards, a carbon fiber-finished rear spoiler, and a chrome tail pipe finisher.

The Montero Sport is now available in eight colors: Gemstone Grey Mica, Cool Silver, Sedona Red, Savanna White, Pyrenese Black, Claysoil Beige, Lorenz Blue Mica and Quartz Brown.
