Mitsubishi has updated safety specification on its Pajero Sport 7-seater SUV while also increasing the towing mass for both 4x4 and 4x4 derivatives. But that’s not all, a convenient 120W Power Plug is now also included to charge laptops and other electronic devices while you are on the move.
The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has a reputation for bulletproof reliability and sure-footed 4x4 capability when tar turns to sand. The new Pajero Sport arrived on local soil last year and Mitsubishi has now improved the specification, towing mass and included a handy 120W Power Plug to charge devices on the go.
On the safety front, the Pajero Sport now gains an additional driver’s knee airbag, bringing the total airbag count to 7 while also now including Isofix child seat anchors as part of the standard specification.
The Pajero Sport is a formidable 7-seat offroader that competes with the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Everest, Isuzu mu-X and the Haval H9.
In addition to the improved safety specification, the Pajero Sport 4x2 now has a maximum towing mass of 2 700 kg while the 4x4 derivative is now able to tow a total mass of 2 790 kg.
The Pajero Sport is powered by a 2.5-litre turbodiesel engine with 133 kW and 430 Nm of torque and is mated with a 8-speed automatic transmission. Offroad 4x4 driving is made possible with Mitsubishi’s Super Select II 4WD system and hill descent control.
Buyers will be happy to know that the latest specification update has not resulted in a price increase and pricing for the Pajero Sport has remained unchanged.
