The Tribune (NZ) - - MID WEEK MOTORING -

Mit­subishi New Zealand has just launched the long-awaited sev­enseat ver­sion of its pop­u­lar Pa­jero Sport SUV.

Pack­ing the same 135kW and 437Nm 2.4-litre diesel turbo en­gine, 3.1-tonne braked tow­ing ca­pac­ity and 4WD driv­e­train as the five-seat Pa­jero Sport, the new model adds a fold­away seat­ing row at the rear.

The third-row seat­ing ac­com­mo­dates two pas­sen­gers and fea­tures stan­dard three-point seat­belts with ELR, plus airbags on ei­ther side – tak­ing the to­tal airbag count to nine through­out the ve­hi­cle.

The ex­tra seat­ing adds just 40kg to the ve­hi­cle’s kerb weight, with­out com­pro­mis­ing fuel con­sump­tion of 8.0 litres per 100km – a rat­ing shared by both the XLS and premium VRX mod­els.

Pa­jero Sport seven-seat XLS and VRX mod­els are avail­able for a pro­mo­tional price of $52,990 and $61,990 re­spec­tively un­til the end of Septem­ber.
