Mitsubishi's ever-popular midsize SUV has received a slight makeover. The Japanese carmaker has just announced that the upgraded version of the top-of-the-line Montero Sport GT variant is now available. More than a mere facelift, the improved package is rather comprehensive.
For one, consider the safety features on-board. The list includes forward collision mitigation, blind spot warning, hill descent control, and start assist. It also has a Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body and seven airbags for increased safety in case of an accident. There's now adaptive cruise control as well for long drives. Like before, it's powered by a 2.4-liter diesel attached to a 4x4 drivetrain.
The GT variant also comes with what's known as Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS). As Mitsubishi Motors Philippines (MMPC) puts it, "this feature helps prevent parking collisions by controlling the motor output if you suddenly accelerate forward or reverse by accident. Buzzer sounds and warning displays in the indicator if front or rear sensors detects a nearby obstacle to reduce collision damage." Sounds like it'd come in handy if you accidentally forgot which pedal is for the brakes.
While the exterior remains the same, the interior gets some minor upgrades. It has a piano black finish with black leather galore, and eight-way power adjustment for the driver and front passenger.
You can reserve a new Montero Sport GT unit now at MMPC dealerships for P2,058,000. Interested?
