Despite the tough times in August over 400 Australian took home a Mitsubishi Pajero, giving the Japanese medium sized SUV a 7.3% share of the market. Currently the Pajero sits behind the Ford Territory, Holden Captiva, Toyota Kluger and Prado. To give buyers more reason to pick a Pajero, Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) has today announced the release of a special action Pajero; the Pajero Platinum Edition.
At a glance the upgraded Pajero comes with better safety features, sat-nav and exterior updates.
The limited edition Pajero is based on the GLX model and is limited to just 550 units. Buyers can match the car to either a 3.8-litre petrol or 3.2-litre diesel power unit. Both engines are available with automatic or manual transmission.
The standard Pajero already includes ABS braking system (Brake Assist & EBD), electronic stability control and driver and passenger SRS airbags, the Platinum Edition adds a feature which should have already been standard on a car as large as the Pajero, a reversing camera. Front fog lamps are also added.
A sporty rear deflector, much needed coloured door mirrors, integrated side steps with front mudguards plus Platinum Edition badging and carpet mats showcase the exterior and interior upgrades.
As part of the Platinum package, Mitsubishi’s Multi Communication System (MMCS) with satellite navigation and Bluetooth mobile phone synchronization ability is included.
As with all Mitsubishi’s, the limited edition Pajero Platinum is covered by a 10 year / 160,000 km non-transferrable drive-train warranty in addition to a five year / 130,000 km new vehicle warranty.
The platinum edition variant goes on sale in October.
