Appending the words 'Black Edition' seems to be quite popular now. We've seen loads of automakers do it too with Ford, Honda, and Suzuki just to name a few. Now, Mitsubishi hops in on the trend with their Montero Sport Black Series.
But you may be wondering, why is the car finished in pearl white? In this case, Black Series refers to the de-chroming of the Montero Sport, for the most part that is. Because of that, the popular PPV has a rather interesting look with its contrasting tones.
So what's been 'murdered-out' in the Black Series? For starters, you have the grill which is now finished in high-gloss black, as well as the front apron. Curiously, the same doesn't apply for the silver trim on the bumper. There's also the trendy Montero Sport lettering on the hood.
Then there's the obligatory set of black wheels, again with a glossy finish. The roof and roof rails are also done in black, with the latter typically finished in matte silver on standard models. Last but not least is the rear under garnish, which gets the same treatment as the front apron. As for the interior, there isn't any mention if there are upgrades to be found. However, there is a Black Series badge on the passenger side of the dash, and you get illuminated scuff plates standard.
The Montero Sport Black Series is based on the GLS variant, although you do get some GLS Premium goodies thrown in as well. The Bi-LED headlights are standard, and so are the LED tail lights. Also, it only comes in two-wheel drive. With that, engine specs are unchanged meaning the 181 PS, 2.4-liter MIVEC turbodiesel powers the SUV.
The Montero Sport Black Series starts at Php 1,800,000. Of course, for those who want this special edition Montero Sport true to its name, you can also have it in black too.
