4 x 4 Australia - - The Score -

WHEN the Pa­jero Sport was launched late last year, one crit­i­cism was that it was avail­able as a five-seater only – in a mar­ket where hav­ing seven seats is a big sell­ing ad­van­tage.

Mit­subishi has now cor­rected the sit­u­a­tion, of­fer­ing seven seats as stan­dard in Pa­jero Sport GLS and Ex­ceed; the GLX will re­main as a five-seat model. The Pa­jero Sport’s 50-50 split third-row seats fold forward when not re­quired and present a flat cargo floor stowage area. Ac­cess to the third row seats is via a fold-and­tum­ble func­tion on the 60-40 split second-row seat.

The seven-seater Pa­jero Sport GLS and Ex­ceed have side cur­tain airbags cov­er­ing all three rows of seats, and ceil­ing-mounted vents for second and third row pas­sen­gers are now in­cluded on all mod­els – GLX, GLS and Ex­ceed. Be­hind the third row seats there’s a shal­low cargo tray un­der the floor.
