The Montero’s styling was conservatively handsome when it was launched, and that still continues today. Familiar family cues link it to thePajero and hardcore off-road Mitsubishis of years past, but the Olivier Boulay-style nose is noticeably out of step with the current Mitsubishi car lineup. There’s nothing particularly wrong with the cosmetic package, but it certainly lacks a little machismo compared to its competitors. Then again, the inoffensive looks hint at it being more of a family car than most. But looks can be deceiving.
