One of Japan’s leading automakers, Mitsubishi, recently expanded its SUV range, by launching the all-new Montero Sport in the UAE market. This mid-sized SUV is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 MIVEC engine and has an 8-speed automatic transmission system.
According to senior executives of Al Habtoor Motors, the exclusive distributors of Mitsubishi in the UAE, one of the unique features of the Montero Sport is that it has an off-road feature called the ‘Hill Descent Control’, which automatically applies the brakes to maintain
the current speed, when travelling downhill at 2 km/h-20 km/h. Thus, allowing the driver to concentrate fully on steering, while descending.
The newly launched SUV is claimed by the manufacturers and Al Habtoor, to possess refined exterior design, high-quality performance and is equipped with a full range of comprehensive advanced safety features, including seven SRS airbags to ensure passenger safety.
It is competitively priced, according to Al Habtoor, in the range of Dh 89,900 for the baseline model to Dh 107,000 for the fully-loaded premium version.
