Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) officially unveils the all-new Montero Sport at the World Trade Center in Manila. The all-new Montero Sport first debuted in Thailand last August 2015 and was very well accepted by the Thai market. The Philippines will be the fourth country to release the all-new Montero Sport and it will be available in four variants namely the GT 4 Wheel Drive 8-Speed Automatic Transmission, GLS 4WD 6-Speed Manual Transmission, GLS 2 Wheel Drive Premium 8-Speed AT, and the base model GLS 2WD 8-Speed AT.
At the heart of the all-new Montero Sport is the world’s first clean diesel engine equipped with Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) technology. The new 2.4 liter 4N15 diesel is now Euro 4 compliant and is now cleaner, more powerful and more efficient. Compared to traditional diesel engines, the 4N15 engine boasts of a low compression ratio, thus reducing fuel consumption, smoke and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions as well as maximizing the output of the Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT). As a result, the power output of the all-new Clean Diesel engine with MIVEC is raised to 181 Ps/3500 RPM and 430 Nm/2,500 rpm. Differentiating it from its predecessor, the 4N15 engine uses an aluminum cylinder block, making it significantly lighter.
Also for the first time in its class, the automatic variants are equipped with an 8-Speed automatic transmission with Sports Mode which is designed for quick sprints and relaxed highway cruising while the GLS 4WD is also equipped with a new 6-Speed Manual transmission. These new transmissions bring out more pleasurable drive and better performance on every journey.
The all-new Montero Sport uses an improved Super-Select II 4WD system which features a dial type selector. This is complemented by the new off-road Mode (first on a Mitsubishi model), which gives an excellent all-terrain performance and stability.
The all-new Montero Sport is available at the following prices:
GT 4WD 8 Speed AT Php 1,998,000
GLS 4WD 6 Speed MT Php 1,785,000
GLS 2WD Premium 8 Speed AT Php 1,685,000
GLS 2WD 8 Speed AT Php 1,500,000
