The all-new Pajero Sport combines style, luxury, cutting-edge technologies, and creature comforts with a capable four-wheel drive system to deliver excitiment and adrenaline gush every time the pedal meets the metal.
According to a report by Autocar India, the new 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is expected to go for sale in the Indian market sometime in mid-2018. It is stylish, bold, and off-road capable. Mitsubishi says the new Pajero Sport is based on the Triton light pickup truck. This therefore means it features a ladder frame chassis.
Up front, the new model gets what the automaker calls a “Dynamic Shield”. It is an all-new feature for 2018 and gives the Pajero Sport a masculine stance. Other features to expect at the front end include chrome accents, and LED projector headlamps and LED foglamps. And for purposes of aiding off-road driving, the Pajero Sport will also feature a splash-free windshield.
Dimensions wise, the 2018 Pajero Sport measures: 4,695mm – length, 1,840mm – height, and 1,815mm – width. Although the dimensions aforementioned haven’t changed relative to the outgoing model, the automaker says the wheelbase grows by 90mm.
Interior wise, material quality and technologies are top notch. The steering wheel, dashboard, and center console are all covered in chrome accents. Again, the center stack is crisp, intuitive and void of cluttering. The new 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport also gets an updated infotainment system. Among the features it is expected to come with include an auxiliary output, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Some of the standard features to expect inside the new model include a dual-zone automatic climate control, heatable and power-adjustable leather trimmed seats, rain-sensor wipers, smartphone connectivity, push-button ignition, rain-sensor wipers, and automatic LED headlights.
Beneath the hood, the 2018 Pajero Sport comes equipped with a powerful 2.4L MIVEC, four-cylinder, diesel engine capable of generating a decent output rated at 181 horsepower and 440 pounds of torque. The power will then be taken up by the eight-speed automatic transmission system and fed into the AWD system.
Driver aids to expect for the 2018 year model include bird's eye-view parking camera, radar cruise control, a low-speed autonomous emergency braking, and a blind-spot camera.
For the Indian market, the Pajero Sport is expected to be available in two flavors – Pajero Sport two wheel drive and Pajero Sport four-wheel drive. It is expected to be launched later next year (2018) beginning with the Indian market and should go for sale starting from Rs. 27.12 lakh.
Once it is available for sale, it’ll go head to head with the likes of Isuzu MU-X, Ford Endeavour, and Toyota Fortuner.
