Cool

by Luxured Driver from on Thu Dec 24 2015

Our Take on the 1997 Mitsubishi Montero

It looked good at the Detroit auto show, the 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Slim, trim, rounded. It was more appealing than its bigger siblings, the luxury Montero LS and SR -- tall, boxy jobs laden with high-priced gimcrackery.

Show goers applauded the Sport's lack of ornamentation. They praised the Sport LS 4WD's interior, outfitted with tough, woven fabric in its seats and door panels. They marveled over the vehicle's many storage compartments -- including shallow units hidden under the floor of the rear cargo area.
