The Mitsubishi Pajero sport is one of those cars by Mitsubishi that presents surprises not just in terms of what is can do, but it’s the combination of the looks and its performance. Clearly when you give it a first look, you will be justified for concluding that this beauty is a pure urban vehicle, yet when you take it on the road and off road that is, that’s is when you will be surprised. The Pajero Sport performs very well off road and the sleek look appearance it wears can surely be taken as a cover up. The specifications for this car are quite immaculate and do speak of an off roader and also a modern vehicle with style and looks, not lacking in high tech and also wearing a modern design both interior and exterior.
The Pajero Sport runs on a splendid turbo-diesel engine, capacity 3.2L and this engine churns out 120kW at 3500 rpm and a torque of 343Nm at 2500 rpm. Estimates for its fuel economy are 10.5 L for 100km and this is in the urban settings, meaning that on the highway it does better. Also numbers associated with the engine is the top speed of 178km/hr which the Pajero sport can do very comfortably. Dimensionally, the car is quite sizeable, but not too big compared to models such as the Toyota Land Cruiser VX. It measures a length of 4695mm and a width of 1815mm, while its height is measured at 1800mm. These dimensions enable the car to carry 7 passengers very comfortably, both the weight of the passengers and the vehicle supported on a suspension of coil spring with a stabilizing bar.
Its ability to tackle the rough terrain is spelt out in its ground clearance of 215mm, which compares very well against competitors in its range, such as the Toyota Fortuner. With a turning cycle of 5.60m and with tilt steering, you can enjoy easy maneuvering with this modern engine in and around the city. It is equipped with modern high teach features that has benefitted from years of development in the Mitsubishi SUV range from the 1970s when the idea of the Pajero was first muted. Its interior is not one lacking a touch of elegance and refinement, as it comes with a steering wheel mounted with controls for that easy control and for easy access when driving. Added to the interior is the aircon associated with the climate control system. To enjoy your ride and also get company when alone is the CD/MP3 audio player system for your enjoyment of music.
This modern vehicle comes with modern high tech safety features to give you that assurance of at least the basic safety expected from any modern luxury SUV. It offers airbags, traction control, fog lamp and parking sensors for your security on the road. The electronic braking force distribution system comes mated to the airbags and also supporting these functions are seat belts to keep you tucked in for your safety when maneuvering along the busy urban cycles and also for that long journey on the highway.
The good looks of the Pajero Sports makes it a very good choice for that outing that requires that “bling bling” appeal and a show of character, because by itself it has enough character to augment yours where you may falter. For a car that shares the similar underpinnings with the Mitsubishi Triton, you can still go off road and still enjoy great comfort and not worry about your sump hitting huddles off road. Coming with the low-range transfer case and a full differential locking system, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport can take on the steep terrains to your amazement without any prejudices.
The inside of the Mitsubishi is furnished with lovely trimmings and the leather appeal makes it quite not resistible. You can sleep into the seat and almost think the designers had your size when the designed the car. The automatic gearbox adds on to the list of features enjoyable on that long journey, as it pulls itself ahead easily and without any struggle. The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport faces real competition from models such as the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Everest to name just a few, but its distinctive look and great interior design and appeal keeps it rolling its “head high” and “chest up”. It is the modern style of luxury and comfort you can’t afford to live without is you can afford it, so get it and tell a good tale, if you have never had a good tale to tell.
