The 2018 Montes Urban (MY19)
Three years after the release of the sixth generation of Montes Urban, today we show the restyling version.
At first glance, it may seem that only changes have been made at an aesthetic level, but in reality, almost the entire car has been remodeled. Use the same chassis and body design, but the materials change. Using now for the first, lightweight AHS steel, and for the second, aluminum completely.
At the engine level, it also launches the new SCHI family, both in 4 cylinders, as in the previously seen, v6 3.5l, used in the RXS-6. Improves both in terms of efficiency, sound, power delivery, torque and reliability, to the previous 4 DiSi cylinders, as well as the V6, compared to the previous V6 of 3 and 3.2 liters.
The geometry of suspensions is the same used in the pre-restyling version, but has also been completely redesigned, but the shock absorbers have new tare and internal design, as well as the springs, to obtain a compromise between ride quality, sportsmanship and low rolling, not seen before.
In the aesthetic section, the optical groups have been changed, both in front and behind.
In front, now they are provided with full Matrix LED lighting, and in the Exclusive and MRP finish, as an option for € 3000, high beam laser lights.
The grille has also undergone a redesign to adapt it to the cooling requirements of the new engines, as well as improve the aesthetics, and have active cooling flaps to improve the aerodynamic coefficient.
Inside, it has been redesigned until the last screw, to increase the feeling of quality of the materials, as well as their adjustments, and to avoid crunching as much as possible.
And in the Luxury and Exclusive finishes, the dashboard is available, as well as the door panels and seats, covered in genuine quality leather, for when you sit in the cabin, seeing the atmosphere that surrounds it and feel the materials, it feels like in a vehicle of superior category, putting a standards of quality of materials and manufacture in the segment, never before seen.
In terms of engines and transmissions, we have a total of 5 engines available. All, except for the 3.5 MRP, turbo. A turbo with spherical bearings, accompanied by an intercooler, which works with low pressure, to obtain the greatest possible response, and the lowest possible lag.
These engines, thanks to the combination of pistons with a specific antifriction treatment, as well as the turbo and direct injection, achieve up to 37.7% thermal efficiency, without the need to resort to hybrid technology. A milestone that allows Diesel consumption in a gasoline engine, in addition to very low emissions.
The available transmissions are of 6 speeds, both in manual and double clutch (MDC), which are responsible for sending the work of the engine to the rear wheels, where you will find the differential.
Available differentials of three types: viscous for all normal versions, except the Exclusive, mechanical for the GT Turbo, and electronic for the MRP 3.5, as well as for the Exclusive.
For more information, we have model catalogs, from which, from today, you can request a driving test, as well as request the purchase of a unit.
Thank you very much for your attention.
