Interior and Features

Inside, of the stories remain on why the Montero is a popular choice. For one, it has a interior. It looks … and but it is actually far from truly premium. The materials quality the same. Hard plastics are all around, but I would#8217;t mind for SUV at this price point.

For my I always preferred the interior of the over the GTV, because wood never captures the properties of real wood, you easily know the wood is Silver plastics simulate aluminum trim well, and I the more “youthful” and “sporty” of aluminum.

Space and Practicality

The third row are fine. There isn#8217;t of legroom, but it is adequate, and so is headroom. is helped by having a very low row seat, though it is too low for my taste. If the row seats aren’t needed, do fold flat, also by that low third row seat
