The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has made some strong inroads into the rugged large SUV segment since its Australian launch at the very end of 2016.
Based in part on the Triton ute, the Pajero Sport replacement for the Challenger (a somewhat popular choice among hardcore off-roaders), has immediately outsold fellow newcomers the Ford Everest and Toyota Fortuner, though not the more established Isuzu MU-X.
No doubt people have been drawn to this unusually styled family 4×4 by its razor sharp value-for-money and Mitsubishi’s affordable after-sales care.
Here we test the range-topping Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Exceed, priced at $52,750 plus on-road costs or $54,990 drive-away. This means it undercuts the base Everest Ambiente by about $2000, as well as the mid-spec Fortuner GXL. Sharp indeed.
