Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, though the SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also an excellent bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, so you can pick and choose those that are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a while, you can get the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport with a four-cylinder engine or even a better V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of the upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from across the way.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport is as competent as they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content makes it supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features found on the upper trim levels could be added to the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system coupled with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make a lot of people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Montero Sport features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so your front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
