If you think that the current Mitsubishi Pajero Sport was dull in looks and did not perform well, think again. The all new Mitsubishi Pajero is coming soon with a completely new design. It will host some advance safety and performance features that customers will love. Pajero might not be a big name in North America or Europe but is a big name in Asia. The 90’s Pajero is considered as a cult machine which was extremely enjoyable off-road. The current generation Pajero was launched few years back and challenged Toyota Fortuner, Ford Everest/Endeavour and Chevrolet Trailblazer. Pajero Sport was not able to put up good sales figures as compared to its rivals and was also not liked by many customers due to its lackluster character as compared to cult car of late nineties and early 2000’s.
The new 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is going to bring the fans back to brand with revised suspension and new technologies in safety and performance department. The design as you can see is all new and is striking from most angles. The front is aggressive with chrome grills and interior has been improved over the predecessor while ground clearance is further enhanced to tackle challenging roads. The tail-lights however, looks dull and do not match with the design. The new model is also derived from L200 truck like its predecessor, which is further tuned to deliver comfort. The biggest change is the new model offers eight-speed automatic transmission instead of previous 5-speed auto-box which was sluggish.
Other new improvements to the model is that, for the first time Pajero is introduced with advanced collision warning system. The system sense the vehicle or obstruction ahead and applies brakes automatically even if the driver is unaware of the danger. It further won’t let you accelerate if the obstruction is in front of you. This would make the car very safe and now you can comfortably give keys to your wife without worrying too much. An automatic power brake and knob switches are present to park vehicle and change driving modes respectively, replacing the traditional lever which makes the interior fresh and less complicated. The SUV’s classic architecture with cross-bar chassis and rear leaf spring suspension is further improved to deliver better ride and driving experience.
The engines offered are 2.4 liter and 3.0-liter versions developing 154 hp and 181 hp respectively. Fuel efficiency has improved by 17 percent and it now emits 200 gm/Km of CO2. The new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will be available in showrooms later this year.
