It’s coming finally, the all new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. Mitsubishi India will launch the all new model by Mid February. The Pajero Sport will be powered by a 2.5 litre diesel engine which will have an power output of 140 Ps and is tuned mainly for higher fuel efficiency.
Mitsubishi has been delaying the Pajero Sport in India for quite some time now.
Mitsubishi opted out of the 2012 Auto Expo as the company had to delay the launch due to the devastating floods which crippled the production in Thailand.
The Pajero Sport uses an All Wheel Control Super Select 4WD driveline which feeds maximum drive torque to the wheels with better grip. The Pajero Sport will come as a 7 seater with 3 rows of seats and the front seatbacks can recline completely to provide a flat surface together with the rear seats.
The Pajero sport is equipped with Active safety features life ABS and EBD. ABS keeps wheels from locking up to maintain control of the vehicle during hard emergency braking, preventing slipping and skidding. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) assists by redistributing braking force to the rear brakes as needed, enabling quicker stops even when carrying passengers and heavy loads. It also comes with Dual Airbags in the front.
The Pajero Sport will be launched initially as a CBU and later will start assemble operations in the Indian market. Expect aggressive prices to take on the Fortuner head on.
