Mitsubishi Montero Sport Joins 5-Star ASEAN NCAP Club
The Mitsubishi Montero Sport, equipped with Active Stability Control (ASC) and Seatbelt Reminder System (SBR) garnered a perfect 5-star score at the ASEAN NCAP in Adult Occupancy Protection (AOP) scoring 15.29 out of a possible 16.00 points. This accolade proves Mitsubishi’s commitment in prioritizing safety as one of the most important aspects in car development. The Montero Sport’s 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating joins the model’s 5-star safety rating in the Latin NCAP and ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program).
While the model received a 5-star rating in adult protection, the Montero Sport earned a respectable 4-star rating in Child Occupant Protection (COP) thanks to standard ISOFIX child set anchors. Mitsubishi’s family-friendly SUV garnered a 76 percent score out of 100.
Launched in the Philippines this year, the Montero Sport has received good feedback from the market with its “Dynamic Shield” front design concept. Furthermore, it offers high performance thanks to a 2.4-liter clean diesel engine mated to an 8-speed automatic.
On higher variants, the Montero Sport comes with advanced safety features such as Forward Collision Mitigation System, Active Stability Control, Active Traction Control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist. Furthermore, it has 3-point seatbelts in every seating position as well as two ISOFIX anchors.
