In the second innings, the Montero with additional features comes at whopping price of Rs 70.43 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai) as it is being brought here via the Completely-Built-Unit (CBU) route. However, the deliveries are expected to start from October-2016. It was discontinued from the Indian market in 2014, due to poor demand and commanding price of Rs 40 lakh a bit much for a non-luxury brand.

Now with the steep price, it will be interesting to see if the Montero finds buyers, especially with the added features like a new full-length grille bordered by 2-large vertical chrome bars, reworked headlamps and front bumper featuring LED positioning lights, spare wheel mounted on the tailgate, revised side cladding and new set of alloy wheels.

The soon-to-be-launched Montero is based on the same platform and the engine. Powered by an 3.2-litre unit turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine producing 189bhp and 441Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a 5-speed automatic transmission. But this unit now churns-out 10hp less than the old motor. The torque figure and the 5-speed automatic gearbox remain unchanged.
