MOntero is going to be around 25-28.

Considering that Prado is 32.

It will be the same price card for HM-Mitsubishi as they played with cedia over corolla.

I belive the Outlander was on the cards not the Montero
Prado is 44 lakhs ex showroom thane+ tax = close to 50 lakhs

Actually both the Soft-roader and SUV are on the cards.

While previously HM was going to launch the old outlander, the genius struck and they decided to wait for the new outlander.

Hence montero will appear first now.

Mitsubishi dealerships are starting to accept enquiries for the Montero. Sources suggest indicative pricing of 31L on-road. The SUV will be launched in a couple of weeks. Check out this site: www.mitsubushi-motors.co.in.

They have started accepting online enquiries...

According to mags the Montero should be around 14L(Correct me if i am wrong) However knowing Mitsubishi being so fast and accurate with their prducts i doubt Montero would come before Toyota is able to get the Fortuner and then it will be game on.

Thats not the Montero but the Outlander you are talkin about. Read about the performance, quality, looks, Sales of Outlander to FOrtuner CRV and X-trail and you will know where it stands.

WIth the new eclipse, new Outlander, new Lancer(coming soon), current colt and 380(gallant) Mitsubishi has hit bullseye. It remains to be seen if they can continue the black run.

Well thanks a lot for the info guys, saw "raftaar" on NDTV India yesterday and they covered the Montero. The prices they told are same 29 - 31, and expectedly it is coming in 2nd week of August. but after seeing the mini review of the car i am not very excited for the car as i earlier was.

No doubt the car is one hot looking babe, i saw it last month when i was in dubai, but there i saw a really confusing thing, both montero and prado were identically the same, the only difference was the logo.....even at one point i saw both montero and prado standing aside and both were of white colour, man there was not even a single difference other than the logo....why ??

Dealership called me this morning, since I had told them of my inclination toward the Pajero. They claim the on-road price ex-Mumbai is going to be 38. Too darn much!!

Umm....Fortuner?

Please try Outlander. Just read that Outlander is the largest selling mini-suv in Japan. It is quite handsome, and it is Mitsubishi
