Mitsubishi to launch Pajero Sport in 2012

Mitsubishi will finally launch the Pajero Sport SUV in India at the Auto Expo in January 2012. Mitsubishi is planning to launch in the model for quite some time in India especially after seeing the success of the Toyota Fortuner.

The Pajero Sport is based on the Triton platform and will be locally assembled in India to keep the car in 20-23 lakh price bracket.

The Pajero Sport gets a 2.5-litre 16-valve intercooled turbocharged diesel heart producing 134bhp and 32kgm of torque. It comes with shift-on-the-fly Super Select 4WD and a high 215mm ground clearance which should give it terrific off-road capability.

The car will make its debut at the 2012 Auto expo in January.
