Safety kit added, looks tweaked
Mitsubishi has announced revisions to its Pajero Sport lineup for 2018, adding a more-expensive GLS trim to the five-seat range and rolling out active safety equipment across all models.
Forward-collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control are now standard on all models, and there are two new USB ports for second-row passengers on the Exceed.
Along with the new second-row plugs, a 150W/220V three-pin power outlet has joined the two USB ports in the Exceed's centre console, while the 12V plug has been moved to the back of the centre console. Across the range, Mitsubishi has added soft trim along the sides of the centre console.
On the outside, you'll be able to tell the 2018 update by its 18-inch alloy wheels in GLX trim, and the range-topping Exceed has gained a rear spoiler.
The GLS five- and seven-seaters are now offered in Pitch Black Pearlescent paint.
Regardless of trim, power still comes from a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel four making 133kW and 430Nm. It's put to the road through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and there's low-range and a central differential lock for off-roading. The more expensive GLS and Exceed also get a rear-differential lock.
The new Pajero Sport will be in dealerships from tomorrow.
