Pajero Sport is imminent
From Page 1
models will be equipped with Mitsubishi’s new eightspeed automatic transmission. Super-Select II-4 4WD versions also have low-range gearing, as you’d expect in this neck of the SUV woods.
The new Pajero Sport rides on a ladder frame chassis and double wishbone independent front suspension, with a threelink coil-sprung set-up doing service at the back.
Depending on how it’s specced, the SUV weighs around 2100kg and has a braked towing capacity of 3100kg.
Mitsubishi SA says the vehicle will come with various new luxury features, but has not yet revealed what any of these are, except to say that it will only be offered in high-specification guise.
However, it’s almost certain that it’ll offer the 17.8cm touchscreen infotainment system offered in overseas markets.
Abroad, the SUV is also offered with safety features such as Trailer Stability Assist, Forward Collision Mitigation (with auto-braking) and Blind Spot Warning, while also offering the convenience of Adaptive Cruise Control and Mitsubishi’s Multi Around Monitor.
More information on the local model will be released around launch time in September.
