Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) announces the spectacular October sales performance for its most popular SUV – the Montero Sport. With 533 units sold, the Montero Sport posts an increase of 232% over September 2020 sales. The report comes at a time when the local automotive industry is reeling from lost sales due to government quarantine measures meant to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The strong October performance of the Montero Sport shows it remains to be a much sought-after model in the Mitsubishi lineup,” shares Mr. Mutsuhiro Oshikiri, President and CEO of MMPC. “The Montero Sport’s popularity with Filipinos is undeniable as it continues to provide genuine all-road performance while being stylishly modern. Its long list of advanced features and amenities likewise contribute to the Montero Sport’s reputation of being a reliable and convenient partner in the Filipinos’ everyday lives.”
The Montero Sport remains to be one of MMPC’s most popular vehicle nameplates. Designed to project a high-class presence while delivering outstanding on and off-road performance, the Montero Sport is an SUV that stays true to its origins.
The 2020 Montero Sport debuted in October 2019 featuring the new Dynamic Shield Concept front fascia which expresses the idea that form follows function. Projecting the potential for high performance while providing a protective aura, Mitsubishi’s design philosophy has been fully adopted in the Montero Sport to reinforce its robust nature, modern-day styling and advanced technology.
Inside, its well-appointed cabin showcases its ability to seat seven in superlative comfort. Its leather-lined seats make every journey memorably pleasing. With their reconfigurable versatility, the folding seats of the Montero Sport transform its cabin into an expansive cargo hold for those times extra space is needed.
The 2020 Montero Sport also makes driving easier with its new 8-inch LCD meter that displays important driving information. The customizable display is clear and instantly legible and takes the Montero Sport one step closer to the future.
Passenger entertainment is expertly handled by the Smartphone-Link Display Audio (SDA) which seamlessly connects mobile phone functionality with either the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto interface. With its touchscreen interface, navigation, journey data, energy consumption, and driving range may also be accessed to provide a complete stream of information in every drive.
Filipino families, working professionals, and accomplished individuals all appreciate the Montero Sport’s clean and clear cabin layout. Studded with convenience features such as climate control, multiple cup holders, device chargers, and storage bins, the Montero Sport’s interior is an inviting refuge from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
The power of its 2.4-liter turbo diesel engine, and the stability and the confidence its advanced Super Select 4WD II system with off-road mode selection and differential locking affords, are just some of the other many reasons why Filipinos have come to love Mitsubishi’s quintessential seven-seat SUV. Along with advanced safety features such as the Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) and Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Blind Spot Warning System (BSW) with Lane Change Assist (LCA), driving a Montero Sport with confidence and peace of mind is a reality experienced by thousands on the road today.
Supported by a network of 55 Mitsubishi dealers nationwide, owning a Montero Sport is not only a reassuring experience but also a sound investment. And this is why the Montero Sport continues to be a solid aspirational choice among thousands of Filipino car buyers to this day.
