New tech and a new model for the range

Mitsubishi has unwrapped the updated Pajero Sport.

With a focus on interior upgrades, Mitsubishi’s flagship model has also undergone some styling changes - the most obvious being at the front, which now falls in line with the rest of the company’s models by featuring the “dynamic shield” grille design. The rear features a thicker bumper and a diffuser, as well as redesigned tail lights. 18” wheels are standard.

Interior comfort and convenience has been boosted throughout the 7-seater cabin. Up front, there’s a new 8-inch touchscreen with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, as well as customisable digital instrumentation. An electric parking brake with auto hold function is standard across the range, along with a multifunction steering and dual-zone climate control, with controls for rear passengers. Leg and elbow room have been improved, and all models now have dual USB sockets for rear passengers and a 220AC 150-Watt power socket.

Standard safety kit includes 7 airbags, ISOFIX, active stability and traction control, ABS, EBD and emergency brake assist. All models also feature hill-start assist, light-sensing headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, rear park distance control and a rear-view camera.

The Pajero Sport line-up has been expanded with the addition of the Exceed model, which adds more tech to the standard features list: an electric sunroof, electric tailgate with foot sensor, and app-enabled functionality for the vehicle.

There’s been no change to the Pajero Sport’s drivetrain: Mitsubishi have stuck with the 133kW / 430Nm 2.4 4-cylinder turbo diesel, with 8-speed auto and 2- or all-wheel drive. Similarly, Mitsubishi’s Super Select 4WD II system is still available, and helps set the car up for of off-road driving with four different driving modes. The company is claiming a best-in-class 30º approach angle with a 24º departure angle.
