Al Habtoor, the Mitsubishi dealer in the UAE, has unveiled the new Montero Sport as the latest addition to the Japanese brand’s SUV line-up in the Emirates.

The Montero Sport is a new-generation mid-size SUV, powered by a 3.0L V6 MIVEC engine, with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Active safety features include a forward collision mitigation system (FCM), a blind spot warning system, a first in a Mitsubishi model, and the ultrasonic mis-acceleration mitigation system (UMS). The vehicle is also fitted with an electric parking brake and fully automatic climate control, allowing different temperatures to be set for the driver and front-seat passenger.

The Montero Sport uses a further-evolved version of Mitsubishi’s Super-Select 4WD-II four-wheel drive system, complemented by a new off-road mode – also a first on a Mitsubishi model. The off-road mode offers better all-terrain performance through a Hill Descent Control (HDC) feature. Pressing the HDC mode selector automatically applies the brakes to maintain the current speed when travelling downhill at 2 km/h – 20 km/h. The SUV also features selectable 2WD and 4WD modes, in addition to the off-road mode.

Prices start from AED 89,900 for the baseline version to AED 107,000 for the fully loaded premium model.
