This SUV launch is the second one after BMW X5 that was introduced a few days back in Indian market. The BMW X5 has been launched in two variants both in petrol and diesel. Both the SUVs (BMW X5 and Mitsubishi Montero) are coming with a lot of luxurious features but the pricing is altogether different that draws a line between these two direct competitors.
