Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (2017) Video Review

Following the launch of the Triton bakkie earlier this year, Mitsubishi has followed that up with the SUV version, named the Pajero Sport. An all-new Pajero Sport was introduced to South Africa recently and we took it offroading to determine if it has what it takes to compete with its rivals. Watch the video!

The Pajero Sport is a vehicle that is here specifically to take on the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Everest - both of which have a stranglehold on this segment of the market. However, the Pajero Sport is priced very competitively, sliding in beneath the equivalent Fortuner and Everest. It packs a decent punch from its new-generation 2.4-litre turbo diesel motor with 133 kW and 430 Nm of torque, which sends its power to all four wheels via a new 8-speed gearbox.

And of course, there is Mitsubishi's legendary Super Select four-wheel drive system thrown in for good measure. In this episode, Juliet McGuire takes the new Pajero Sport to our favourite 4x4 testing ground, outside Cape Town. We take a detailed look at the interior, the rear seats and load space practicality, and of course, we get the Pajero Sport properly dirty.
