Pajero Sport was earlier priced at Rs. 24.43 Lakhs (ex-show room New Delhi). The customers will receive a benefit of Rs. 1.87 Lakhs.

The price comes following the local production of the Pajero Sport model at the Hindustan Motors plant in Tiruvallur near Chennai. Currently components like Tyre, battery, window glass, seat belts, lamps, wiper assembly, alloy wheels & headlining are the major items which are being localized at its Tiruvallur plant.
