After an absence of around two years, the Mitsubishi Montero is back in India. The SUV has been relaunched in India at Rs. 71.06 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It will be brought to India as a CBU and sold in only one variant. While Mitsubishi SUVs enjoy a strong brand name in India, we’re not sure whether the new Montero will find enough buyers at this price point. Nevertheless, the SUV is now on sale across India and you can scroll down for all the details regarding the new 2016 Mitsubishi Montero India price, specifications and more.

The 2016 model Montero is considerably more expensive than the model that was sold in India till 2014. The Mitsubishi Montero costs Rs. 67.23 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) in India. The major reason for the steep pricing is the fact that HM will be importing the SUV to India as a completely built unit or CBU. At this price point, the Montero will end up rivaling premium luxury SUVs such as the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Volvo XC90. Mitsubishi might consider assembling the Montero in India if there is sufficient demand. That should help bring the price down considerably.
