Here’s a Mitsubishi Montero, which gets aftermarket 24-inch alloy wheels. These aftermarket wheels look pretty massive.
Mitsubishi Montero was the flagship SUV offered by the carmaker in our market. The SUV is no more sale as the carmaker has ended its operations in India. In our market, it was retailed at a starting price of Rs 68.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Here are a few images of a modified Mitsubishi Montero, which is now shod with a set of massive alloy wheels.
The regular model of the SUV was offered with 18-inch alloy wheels, which looked quite good when wrapped in tyres of the bigger sidewall. Also, they did gel well with the overall muscular look of the SUV. The Mitsubishi Montero you see here gets massive 24-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. These aftermarket alloy wheels are of shiny silver colour shade and have made the SUV look more humongous. These 24-inch mags are of RPM brand, and this modification job has been done by Velocity Tyres. Other than this, no modification has been done to the SUV. We don’t have any idea regarding the price of these alloy wheels, but they seem to be quite expensive. Talking about India-spec Montero, the SUV was powered by a 3.2-litre diesel engine, which develops 192 PS of peak power and 441 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox.
The SUV was first introduced in our market back in 2009 and was equipped with one of the best off-road technologies. Inside, the SUV was equipped with leather seats, automatic climate control, MID for the driver, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a decent music system, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, headlight washer, a few chrome accents and much more. Talking about safety, it came with dual-airbags upfront, ABS and EBD, and Mitsubishi’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body. The main reason behind the discontinuation of Montero in India was its expensive price tag. The SUV was brought in India as a Complete Built Unit and rivalled the likes of Toyota Land Cruiser Prado and Land Rover Discovery.
