The Mitsubishi Montero is finally back in India

After discontinuing the Montero in 2014, Mitsubishi has re-launched the SUV in India, with a starting price of Rs. 67.8 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). This price puts it in the range of the more tempting BMW X5 and Volvo XC90, but there’s not much Mitsubishi can do about it, considering the Montero is being brought in via the CBU route.

Under the hood of the Mitsubishi Montero is the 3.2-litre diesel motor generating 192 HP at 3800 RPM and 441 Nm of torque available from 2000 RPM. The engine is paired to a 5-speed automatic gearbox that transfers power with the help of the Super Select II four-wheel drive system.

The new Montero’s exterior has been re-styled but it’s still humungous in size, measuring 4900 mm in length, 1875 mm in width and 1870 mm in height. The kerb weight stands at 2335 kgs and the Montero has a ground clearance of 235 mm. Tyres measuring 265/60 are offered with 18-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, customers will get 10-way power adjustable driver seat, power adjustable front passenger, driver’s and front passenger’s seat heater, sunroof and a 860-watt Rockford audio system. Meanwhile, safety features include ABS, EBD, dual-front airbags and side and curtain airbags.

The deliveries of the car start from the first week of December and the Montero joins the Pajero Sport as the only two cars sold by Mitsubishi in India.
