Mitsubishi South Africa has introduced the Pajero Legend II limited edition to market and it will be available from dealers at end of June 2016.

Mitsubishi’s popular Pajero SUV line-up has been bolstered with the addition of the Pajero Legend II limited edition, which follows in the footsteps of the Pajero Legend 30-Years that launched locally in 2012. The Legend II will be offered with both long and short wheelbase variants and will be fitted with numerous off-road appointments that will appeal to 4x4 enthusiasts.

“The Pajero has become synonymous with an adventure lifestyle and it remains unique, thanks to its combination of modern luxuries and tried-and-trusted mechanics. It is Mitsubishi’s legacy model and it will remain a mainstay of the brand’s product offering to off-road and adventure enthusiasts,” says Braam Faul, Marketing Manager of Mitsubishi South Africa.

Extra features, more value

The Pajero Legend II LWB is derived from the current top-of-the-range Exceed derivative and comes fitted with R50 000 worth of extra equipment including a under-body protection plate, rock sliders and dual-purpose Yokohama Geolander tyres on 18-inch rims.

The Pajero Legend II SWB gets the same treatment but the rock sliders don’t feature on this variant. A total of R40 000 of extras are fitted to this derivative.

Both models are also fitted with a heavy-duty Bosal tow bar and a chrome Pajero-stamped nudge bar.

On the inside, the Pajero Legend II is equipped with a Garmin nüviCam (with magnetic mount and built-in dash cam) and a Tracks4Africa off-road map. A full set of hard-wearing mats is also included.

If you wish to customise your Pajero Legend II even further, a host of additional features are available to you such as shock absorbers (Tough Dog), roof racks (Front Runner), discharge headlights (Light Force), air compressor, snatch recovery kit, Caska navigation and infotainment system, headlight projectors, bonnet guard and a cooler fridge.

All additional parts are fitted by Mitsubishi technicians and carry the brands’ respective warranty and will not compromise the Pajero’s 100 000 km warranty.

The range of off-road accessories are sourced from reputable overland specialists, Opposite Lock (Australia) and Front Runner South Africa, with cosmetic accessories sourced from Mitsubishi’s catalogue.

Standard Features

The Pajero Legend II is fitted with heated leather seats. The driver’s seat is electrically adjustable, while the front passenger seat is also electrically adjustable in the long wheelbase version. The steering wheel is a combination of wood and leather with mounted controls. A Bluetooth and USB compatible touchscreen infotainment system along with a reverse camera is included, as is parking sensors. The interior also benefits from a double-volume glass sunroof and rear privacy glass.

Safety features include six airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, traction control, and stability control. ISOFIX mounts are included to mount child seats in the rear.

Engine Power

A proven 3.2-litre turbodiesel engine does service in the Pajero Legend II and offers 140 kW and 441 Nm of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission powers the rear wheels under normal driving conditions, while Mitsubishi’s Super Select II 4WD system offers additional driving modes such as 4H, 4HLc and 4LLc to tackle rough terrain. A rear differential lock further improves the off-road ability of the Pajero Legend II.
