Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is up for the Challenge
December 2015 has many new and face lifted cars being released. From the Volkswagen Transporter to the Ferrari 488 GTB, there’s a vehicle for almost all needs. So this month ProNovate takes a look at a car that is bound to take the 4WD scene by the horns in 2016. Introducing the all new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport!
With quirky looks best suited for a sports car and 4WD capabilities best suited for off-road enthusiasts, there is bound to be a piece of the new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport that appeals to everybody.
The Pajero Sport is a direct replacement for the Challenger, and with it comes many improvements such as much more torque & improved off-road ability, refined interior touches and competitive pricing.
Built in Thailand just like many of it’s competitors, the Pajero Sport forms part of a growing niche which includes the likes of the Ford Everest and Toyota Fortuner which is also new this year.
Weighing more than 400 kg’s lighter than the Ford Everest, the Pajero Sport’s fuel economy is said to have improved since its Challenger predecessor, with an official usage figure of 8.0 litres per 100km’s (although our experience shows that you should always add at least a litre per 100km’s on top of “official” figures).
The Pajero Sport will come packed with keyless start electronic parking brake, iPhone and Android connectivity, blind spot warning, full-size spare wheel and 7 inch display screen. It also includes hill decent and trailer sway control, as well as a proud 5 star safety rating.
It goes without saying that if you are in the market for a comfortable 4WD then you should certainly consider taking the Pajero Sport for a test drive, although some things we would like to see improve in the model line-up would be rear vents and the addition of 2 more seats as the Pajero Sport only comes as a 5 seater.
