MONTERO SPORT SAFETY
Ever since we began making automobiles over a century ago, passenger safety has been our number one priority. The new generation Montero Sport continues this mission. It comes with a host of intelligent safety features which allow you to drive with greater confidence both on road and off.
No sudden lurches
To help prevent collisions when parking, a buzzer sounds and a warning light comes on in the 8 inch colour LCD meter if sensors detect a nearby obstacle in your path. Engine output is also automatically controlled if your foot accidentally presses down on the accelerator.
A clear road ahead
If there’s a possibility of a collision with a car up ahead, this intelligent safety system will automatically slow your Montero Sport down.
Reverse with confidence
If a vehicle is detected behind you when you’re just about to reverse out of a parking space or driveway, the indicator on the door mirror blinks, you’ll hear a warning sound and a message appears in the 8 inch colour LCD meter.
Safer pulling out and changing lanes
Sensors on the bumpers will detect if there’s a vehicle in your blind spots. If there is a vehicle nearby, a warning icon blinks on the door mirror. And with Lane Change Assist [LCA], if you activate the turn light and there’s another vehicle coming up, you’ll hear a warning beep.
Feel confident on steep slopes
Negotiating a tricky slope? Use Hill Descent Control (the switch is just above the 4WD selector dial). The Montero Sport will automatically apply the brakes to maintain your current speed. It means you can focus your attention on steering, without having to think about applying the brakes all the time.
If you have a wobble, the Montero Sport won’t
The Active Stability and Traction Control system [ASTC] uses onboard sensors to analyse the vehicle’s motion and identify any unstable movement. By automatically adjusting engine output and applying braking power to the appropriate wheels, ASTC helps to maintain stability and control. It also applies a braking force to the spinning wheels for smooth starts and straight-line acceleration.
Stay a safe distance from the vehicle in front
The Adaptive Cruise Control system maintains a selected distance between your vehicle and the car ahead using built-in radar. You’ll find it helps to reduce driver stress during slow traffic and enhances your driving comfort overall.
