India’s pioneering car company Hindustan Motors Limited has launched an upgraded version of the popular Mitsubishi Montero with a host of new features which have enhanced the design and ambience quotient of the sturdy SUV. The value-added features include new muscular coloured key front bumper, new chrome radiator grille, new finish on power window panel and new stitch design on leather seats. While these changes have added a new dimension to the design of the premium vehicle, the newly introduced interior illumination colour has imparted a refreshed ambience to Montero. Montero’s other acclaimed features like 3.2 liter DOHC diesel engine with intercooler and turbocharger, 202 PS@3800 rpm power and 441 Nm@2000 rpm torque continue to provide the vehicle formidable power and thrust.
