Dual-stage SRS Airbag System

In the event of a forward collision, the driver and front passenger are both protected by front SRS airbags. To further increase safety, the onboard computer measures the force of impact and adjusts airbag deployment speed to best reduce the chance of injury to occupants.

Side and Curtain SRS Airbags

In a side collision, the driver and front passenger are protected by side mounted airbags set to deploy at just the right position regardless of seat position. Furthermore, curtain airbags mounted in the ceiling lining deploy to protect front and 2nd-row occupants.

Safety-design FuelTank

Positioned ahead of the rear axle to help prevent leakage in a collision, Montero’s fuel tank is also guarded by a tough resin underprotector.

RISE Body

Using front and rear crumple tones to absorb and diffuse collision damage before it can reach the cabin interior, Montero’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body design is built to keep occupants safe, regardless of which direction trouble comes from. The rigid monocoque body provides further protection by encasing occupants within a steel framework that resists damage.

Monocoque Body with Built-in Ladder Frame

The strength of Montero’s ladder frame has been nearly tripled over previous designs, providing even better resistance to torsional and flexural stresses without any further increase in weight. This rigidity translates to better handling over difficult road conditions and lower chance of control loss.

ASTC (Active Stability & Traction Control System)

ASTC analyzes the forces acting on Montero to anticipate control loss and take preventive measures. Additional braking is delivered to the wheels that need it, enabling you to hold your line precisely through each turn.

Multi-mode ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)

When the road throws you an unexpected curve, ABS ensures that you’ll be ready. The 4-sensor, 4-channel system is matched to each SS4 II mode to ensure skid-free braking regardless of surface conditions.

EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution)

EBD modulates each braking channel independently, providing additional force to the rear wheels when the vehicle is carrying passengers or cargo. This ensures you are able to come to a stop quickly and safely, regardless of load or road conditions.
