The brawny SUV received few updates to keep things fresh

Mitsubishi introduced a special edition of their popular Pajero Sport in India. Dubbed as Pajero Sport Select Plus the SUV is offered in the Indian market in both 4x2 automatic and 4x4 manual variant respectively. This special edition SUV gets few cosmetic updates and some interior updates inside the cabin.

Currently, Mitsubishi offers two products for the Indian market which includes the Pajero Sport and the Outlander. The previous generation SUV was quite popular in the Indian market for its robust exterior and off road capabilities. However, the new generation SUV failed to win the trust of the people because of poor marketing and limited dealers across the Country.

Like we said this particular limited edition SUV is available in both four wheels and two-wheel drive and is priced about 1.19 lakh above the equivalent standard AT and manual variant.

2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport caught without camouflage

2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport caught without camouflage

Earlier we brought you the teaser of new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. This time we got the vehicle caught off guard, without any camouflage just before its world premiere at 2015 Bangkok International Grand Motor Sale on 1st August. As the auto manufacturer has started making promotional ad films for this new car, we got some spyshots straight from the streets of Thailand, which just showed us the vehicle all bared before its grand launch.

As we saw in the pictures, the all new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport aka Challenger comes with swept wing headlamps, larger lower intake. This vehicle comes with auto manufacturer’s new “Dynamic Shield” front fascia design which is also available on new Outlander. Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is highly inspired by the Mitsubishi Triton pickup truck, but in the front profile new Pajero Sport adorns horizontal chrome grilles, unlike Triton’s vertical ones along with slender and sleek headlamps, LED daytime running lights. The vehicle has six spoke alloy wheels, as well as the B and C pillars completely blackened out. At the rear we can see the dashing tail lamps, which are shaped like an arrow facing toward the front direction, and has a tail, which goes all down to the bottom edge of the tail gate.

Although the Japanese company kept a mum on the engine specifications of this car, but it may come equipped with the same powertrain like the new Triton, which is 2.4 liter four cylinder turbo diesel MIVEC engine, mated with either a six speed manual or five speed automatic transmission, which churns out 161 PS power and 430 Nm torque. Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will fiercely compete with soon to be launched next generation Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Chevrolet Trailblazer. Indian market will get this car in next year only.

The fifth generation of the car that’s also called the Montero will be powered by a 2.4 litre MIVEC diesel engine producing 178.5 HP and 430 Nm of torque and is expected to come loaded with new equipment.

Mitsubishi Working On A Next Generation Pajero

Mitsubishi Working On A Next Generation Pajero

Mitsubishi’s India operations have been through difficult times. Despite a line up complete with mid-size sedans, medium- size SUV in the form of the Outlander and a premium product like the famous Pajero Sport and Montero, but somehow the company’s strategy for India seems to have failed to generate big business. As we speak, the Cedia has been pulled out of the market and the Outlander hasn’t got a cheerful story to tell either. The Pajero Sport however has sort of hung on, while there are a hardly few takers for the Montero.

Now, Mitsubishi is believed to be readying a replacement for the famous Pajero. Car Sensor, a Japanese website has posted a digital rendering of what could be the next Mitsubishi Pajero. According to the publication, the new Pajero will be based on the concept GC-PHEV that saw the light of day back in November of 2013 at the Tokyo Motor Show.

When in production, the next generation Pajero will use a four-cylinder diesel engine. The surprising fact about this car however is that it will be a hybrid, the system will use an electric motor placed under the boot which will be driven by a bank of lithium ion batteries. At cruising speeds, the Pajero will run on electricity. Thanks to the torquey electric motor, the Pajero should be highly effective even on rough grounds.

Will the new Pajero in hybrid guise live up to its legacy? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

2012 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

From where we see it, it seems a very obvious decision for Mitsubishi. Launch their Triton based Mitsubishi Pajero Sport in India and eat into the high demand that exists for the Toyota Fortuner. Mitsubishi has confirmed that the much anticipated Pajero Sport will be seen at the Auto Expo and this model is currently being sold in the South East Asian markets. The Pajero Sport is a man’s car so to speak, a proper SUV built on a ladder frame chassis like the Fortuner and therein lies its charm. It’s a SUV that goes back to the basics and when launched it will form a worthy alternative to the Toyota Fortuner. Don’t let the name Pajero Sport fool you in believing that this SUV has something to do with the Pajero, Montero or all the Repsol-liveried Dakar-conquering machines. The Pajero Sport shares its platform with the Triton pickup and while initially the SUV will come as a CBU from Thailand, CKD operations set to commence in Chennai from September. The SUV is priced at Rs 2423000 ex-showroom New Delhi.

2002 Mitsubishi Pajero

2002 Mitsubishi Pajero

For the longest time even after the economy opened in 1991, if you drove a Pajero, you’d arrived. Film stars patronised it and the Pajero was the end of it when it came to automobiles. With its tough as nails image, the Pajero is one of the most iconic automobile names in India and indeed the world. While the SUV on review is the second generation Pajero and it’s the Montero which is the current and fourth generation Pajero, India’s love for the Pajero brand remains strong and ours is one of the three countries where the second generation Pajero is still sold. The desirability of this legendary Mitsubishi may have dimmed because of competition from newer and more refined SUV’s, but the Pajero still basks in its past glory. Priced at Rs21,17,944 ex-showroom New Delhi, is the Pajero still good enough to stake its claim amid the newer lot?
