UPDATED: Mitsubishi Unveils All-new 2016 Montero Sport in Thailand


UPDATE 2: The all-new Montero Sport arrives in Manila (01/21).

UPDATE 1: We have driven the 2016 Montero Sport GT-Premium. Read our take here (11/9).

The next-generation PPV wars are heating up. After driving the all-new 2015-2016 Ford Everest and the global launch of the all-new 2016 Toyota Fortuner, now it’s Mitsubishi’s turn. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your all-new 2016 Montero Sport.

Known as the ‘Pajero Sport’, ‘Nativa’ and ‘Challenger’ elsewhere, this is the Montero Sport’s full re-design in seven years. Like before, it will be built at the Laem Chabang Plant in Thailand and will be sold in over 90 countries. Sales in Thailand commences in the third quarter of 2015 (autumn) with the rest of the world to follow soon thereafter.



Designed around “Stylish & Comfortable Off-road SUV” concept, the Montero Sport inherits the attributes of the luxurious Pajero nameplate. Upfront, it features Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield front face design. LED headlamps with daytime running lights also allow for a slim and memorable headlamp design. At the sides, the new high belt line design with the hard upper body crease, first seen in the Strada, continues over on the Montero Sport creating a robust and sturdy stance. Across the line, it sports 265/60R18 tires with the 4WD model gaining a two-tone design. The back is dominated by a controversial but unique tail light design that dips down the tailgate. It’s illuminated by LEDs to give it that unique glow at night.

Inside, it has a T-shaped high center console that’s more befitting a larger SUV. Filled with stylized silver finishes and black piano black inserts, it’s sporty and dynamic. It’s also quite luxurious with features such as dual-zone climate control, a touchscreen AV system with rear monitor (and wireless headphones), leather seats, and a tilt/telescopic multi-function steering wheel as available equipment. Unique to the Montero Sport is an electric parking brake (EPB) system that helps slim down the transmission tunnel giving it more knee room.



Improved top-to-bottom, the all-new Montero Sport features better stability, ride, and quietness through the optimization of the suspension system as well as improvements to the body mounts. Additional and revamped sound insulation also help in reducing interior noise.

Under the hood, the 2016 Montero Sport has a sole engine: the 2.4-liter MIVEC turbo diesel engine. It peaks out at 181 horsepower at 3,500 rpm and 430 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. The engine, called 4N15, features an all-aluminum design and is designated as a ‘clean diesel’ capable of at least Euro 4 emission levels. Paired with this engine is an all-new 8-speed automatic with a built-in sport mode, INC (Idle Neutral Control), and G-Sensor. All-in-all, Mitsubishi says the 2016 Montero Sport should achieve up to 17 percent better fuel efficiency over its predecessor. In terms of its four-wheel drive system, it comes with the Super-Select 4WD-II system now featuring a new off-road mode which gives better all-terrain performance and stability as the road surface requires. It also has hill descent control.



Mitsubishi is taking the pole position with the Montero Sport. Aside from the RISE or Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body, it has a total of seven airbags for full occupant protection. In terms of active safety features, aside from the prerequisite ABS with EBD, the all-new Montero Sport features a lot of firsts for the Japanese brand including: Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), and Ultrasonic misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS). And helping it slot into small parking spaces, it has a multi-around monitor that gives a 360-degree Bird’s Eye view around the car.

Mitsubishi hopes that its all-new 2016 Montero Sport will broaden its market base around the world, especially since the outgoing Montero Sport cumulative unit sales reached 400,000 at the end of June.





In Thailand, it comes in just three variants: GLS-TD 4x2, GT 4x2, and GT-Premium 4WD. With its refined and high-quality exterior design, new-found performance, and comfortable interior, it’s sure to gain a bigger following.

    2. sa face palang (mukhang insekto) at sa body (hindi symmetrical, at mukhang pinataas na van) walang sinabi montero. ive driven 2012 montero, walang sinabi sa 2011 hilux ko sa arangkada palang. mas classy looks ng fortuner. kung sa lalaki, iba ang tindig niya. hindi lousy tingnan. montero, huge wide head and butt, subsob pa. ugly ass headlights and proportions. like the mux.. sobrang pangit looks. unlike the ranger fortuner patrol land cruiser trailblazer.. hindi cartoonish looks

    3. lol dont be so a die hard fortuner fan, everyone has its own preferential. Meron ako prado but i dont like fortuner, the new monty looks decent but i would not buy a new one after selling my old monty for the current issues and traded it with ford explorer. From all the suv, ford got the best features in terms of quality and technology, if you dont believe me check it out for yourself. But this new monty looks decent sa wakas may aircon na sa middle seat before kasi wala at got more power than before. Good luck na lang sa mga potential buyers sana wala ng issues

    1. Thailand prices:

      2.4 GLS-TD - 1,138,000 THB (P 1,485,000)
      2.4 GT - P 1,250,000 THB (P 1,631,000)
      2.5 GT Premium - P 1,399,000 THB (P 1,826,000)

      Delete
    2. Premium is 2.5? Different engine?

      Delete
    3. Typo. It's 2.4. It's the only one with 4WD among the line-up.

      Delete
    4. uly, Its seem that the price in your conversion is way higher from outgoing, base in the launching Mitsubishi Thailand marketed from outgoing Pajero Sports (highend) price 1,450,000 baht trimmed down to 1,399,000 baht due to change in Engine from 2.5 to 2.4, Did you use to convert the price directly from baht to pesos? Another this our outgoing HIGH END Montero in Philippines is 1,778,000pesos which definitely the 1,826,000pesos is higher which would be opposite from Mitsubishi Thailand Marketed.

      Delete
    5. Uly, comparing the All New Everest (Thailand) priced 1,599,000 baht while the All New Everest (Philippines) priced 1,899,000 pesos. This price you posted is clearly conversion from Baht to Pesos. The price 1,826,000 pesos for High End Montero is way higher for 1,399,000 baht.

      Delete
    6. I think 2.4 GT Premium - THB 1,399,000 (Thailand) will be around P1,660,000 pesos (Philippines) only not PHP 1,826,000 pesos which is to much higher.

      Delete
    7. The 2.5 is a typo. I was just copying the pricing from the Mitsubishi Thai website and clicked 'enter' without double checking. All Montero Sport use the same 2.4 engine.

      As for the pricing, it's a direct conversion of the Thai prices based on the latest forex according to Google.

      It will likely be cheaper given the 2.4 engine is the maximum that qualifies for the lowest tax bracket for PPVs in Thailand. Now you know why everyone's moving in that direction ;-)

      Delete
    8. As for my own analysis priced Baht to Phil. Pesos multiplicative factor 1.19 priced will be:

      2.4 GLS-TD - THB 1,138,000 will be around PHP 1,350,000
      2.4 GT - THB 1,250,000 will be around PHP 1,480,000
      2.4 GT Premium - THB 1,399,000 will be around PHP 1,660,000

      Delete
    9. with the top version of the current model selling at PHP 1,808,000 it's my believe that 1,660,000 is wishful thinking. Ford Fortuner top model is 2M and top model Toyota Fortuner >2M. I think this GT premium will sell between 1.8 and 1.9M

      Delete
    10. 20K deposit DONE!
      60K early bird discount GRANTED.
      Now let's see how soon can they deliver this 2M-peso AUV 4WD AT to my doorstep.

      Delete
    11. Anonymous, where did you get that conversion rate? THB 1.00 = Php 1.19??
      It should be THB 1.00 = Php 1.31339 based on xe.com conversion.

      Delete
  5. Donno..both the front fascia and the tail lights need some time to like, or dislike for that matter. It's edgy and stylish but I think Mitsu went overboard on this one.
    It will not be to everyone's liking compared to the current model. The style will become the hot topic on everyone's chatter. Lost will be the the astounding technology available and that is a shame.

    1. They even copied the cockroach grille of the HRV.

    3. Mitsubishi 3 diamonds is distinctive than any other brand. Previously the Fighter Jet front grille & now Dynamic Shield

  8. If safety features like Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) and Ultrasonic misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) will work seamlessly this will be a very safe SUV! There's a video demonstrating these features, Montero Sport won't go forward even if you step on the gas if it senses an obstacle in front.

    1. Wow, it's like they admitted that the current version of the Montero indeed has the Sudden Unintended Vehicle Acceleration problem, after denying it for so many years! This is in effect their way of preventing that from happening. Lolz.

    1. From Mitsubishi:

      This system shifts the transmission into neutral when the vehicle comes to a complete stop and the brakes are applied. By shifting into neutral, Idle Neutral Control lessens the amount of power needed to turn the transmission thus reducing drag on the engine. Less power equals less gas required and conserves fuel.

    1. The 2.5 is a typo. All models use a 2.4-liter engine. I think I mentioned that above (as a reply).

      Delete
  16. I don't like the external looks of this Pajakero. Front and rear look like bad ripoffs of previous Hondas. It's like the Jazz taillights melted under the hot sun and the plastic is now dripping down to the ground. The front can pass for the Honda corporate bungal/mouthguard smile. The side profile looks like a funeral hearse, like the kuba CR-V blended with the Isuzu Alterra profile.

  21. I do hope they will bring in the 4N15 here. The new Strada would sell more if they already fitted it with this new engine. Seems to me though that MMPC is waiting for January of next year, when the government-mandated Euro 4 fuels-only regulation takes into full effect.

Expect more accidents from tipping over flying over the rail and skyway kuliglig because their owners, fresh from owning saraos and owner jeeps thought that they own aa fast go suv as falsely advertized, not knowing its just a mere pathetic 65 hp diesel kuliglig whose cheaply built body is bolted to an antiquated ladder frame at the turn of century. Go ahead, have it dyno tested and ypu will get a whap in your face- just a mere 65 hp, then have the alleged airbag and traction control tested - and you will get the shock of your life - total advertising lies. Oo nga, panu nga naman may electronics at power ang kuliglig. Kili kili power lang naman meron mga may ari nian. Mostly papansin kadi pandak, panget, maitim, mataba, na nanay lang nila nagmamahal.

  38. One hopes that the spare tire has an alloy wheel to which it is attached. The unpainted ugly-looking steel spare tire wheel which came with the new 2015 Strada I bought four months ago was a big shock. In reply to my complaint, Mitsubishi offered to sell me an alloy wheel at 20% discount. I thought the decent thing to do was to replace the steel wheel with the alloy for a small token payment.What was I supposed to do with an unwanted steel wheel? I don't think I want to spend over four thousand pesos more for an alloy wheel that might not even be used at all, or at the most only sparingly.

Her's is a bit older but whenever umaabot ng 3000 rpm pataas, umuusok ng sobra :(

    Questions:
    Is this normal?
    Does it have something to do with the ECU?
    Am I supposed to be using a certain brand of fuel?
    Are all diesel vgts like this?

    I'm worried kasi bagong bago palang ng kotse (2970km) eh nag-bebelch na. I use Shell V-power Nitro Diesel btw

  65. Sa nag reply sa post ko na subukan ko ang montero kuliglig at malaman ko bakit meron bumibili, eto sabihin ko sa iyo "social climber" i own hondas; kung ikaw man ung super mayabang sa sctex na dark blue montero na super yabang magpatakbo, ilan beses kitang pina una at ilang beses din kitang nilampasan sa kuliglig mo? Nabilang mo ba? Now alam mo na bakit kuliglig lang ang mitsubulok at ang honda ay suv. Brown 2015 sta fe region 1 plate, now alam mona din, hindi kalevel ng honda ang baklang honda or hyundai. Tingin mo kaya mo ang honda. Dream on. Alam ko nakikipag karera ka sa la union, but nakalimutan mo, malayo mas magagaling ang mga di kumikibo at contended sa bahay lang manood ng tv after work. Ang hyundai sa pinas ay also kuliglig, turbo diesel. And now alam mo na tiyak, any turbo diesel could only go as far as 140. Non turbo diesel 100 lang pigang piga na. I also drive a hyundai diesel.
    Sa nagtanong ano ang recommended ko? Buy anything you want, just don't expect much if hindi branded. Gets?

  66. Is there any truth to the alleged "SUDDEN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION" plaguing the Montero Sport ? There were over 100 cases reported in the Philippines but none in other countries where the same model was introduced (ie Thailand, Indonesia, etc.).

  67. Hello Sir Uly, any idea if how much is the all-new 2016 Montero in the Philippines? Also, when will it be available is it on January? Thank you.

  68. I just made a reservation from their website http://newmonterosport.ph/

    But the all-new 2016 Montero too expensive. Starts at PHP 1,550,000 for GLS 2WD 8 A/T to PHP 2,000,000 for GT 4WD 8 A/T.

    FYI, the PHP 60,000 discount is not yet deducted from the above price.

    I hope the all-new 2016 Fortuner will release their price for comparison.

  72. Hi sir uly, may I ask if the new gear box design of the 2016 montero has been updated or same pa rin. I mean, puwede ka ba mag-shift ng gear kahit hindi ka nakaapak sa brake?

    First choice ko kasi ang Montero kasi mura. Second choice is the Fortuner dahil sa availability ng parts.

  73. Had the chance to see the Montero Sport Premium in Mall of Asia. Was very disappointed because of all hard plastic and you can never seat 3 adults on the 2nd row... and forget to put an adult on the 3rd row (my knees were almost in my chest).

  77. Guys, before buying expensive ordinary cars, check the engine model and the drive train if its the newest modelin the market. for CRV in Europe new engine available for dieselis iDTEC with 9-speed transmission.for montero from old engine 4d56 to 4n15 with 8- speeed. for fortuner new 2kd engine with 6-speed. by 2016 euro 4-6 will be implemented for climate change. please be the catalyst of change cause we breathe the same polluted air with our children and granchildren.

  78. shet na montero yan. ang baba ng value sa market ngayon. Hindi nila ina-address ung mga issues, hindi pa nila pinoprotektahan or build up ung repotutation. Im trying to trade-in my monty 2011 GLS-V, the market value should be at least 900k, e ngayon swerte ka na maka 550k. Would not even recommend to friends and relatives ung new Monterosport models or any mitsubushi cars. Im very disappointed.

    2. Be happy with what you bought. No need to keep telling us why you bought the previous gen.

      It looks as though you regretted it but don't want to admit or you are waiting for someone to agree with you and tell you you made the right choice.

      Either way, no need to keep explaining your decision to us.

  81. Sir uly bakit walang rpm range ung 430nm max torque ang monty saan mag umpisa o single rpm point lang talaga.

  82. I'm a mechanic and Mitsubishi auto-lover. matibay, pangmatagalan. good for all season and terrain. pang mayayaman, pang mahihirap pwede. as you can see kahit model 80's and 90's matatag parin ang mitsu sa kalsada. sa lahat ng mitsu lovers go on!

    1. Mitsubishi pang mayaman na walang taste. Dyologs at lassinggero at hindi marunong mag drive ng automatic. At hindi alam na talo pa ng Kia ang Mistsubishi in terms of quality. Stuck in the 1970s and mga tagahanga ng Mitsubishi.
