  • 2021 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport range has been revised

  • Adaptive cruise control now standard

The 2021 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport range has seen a minor reshuffle for 2021, streamlining the line-up and adding features across much of the range.

Headlining the changes is the deletion of the five-seat GLS variant, bringing the total number of variants on offer to three: the five-seat Pajero Sport GLX, seven-seat GLS and seven-seat, range-topping Exceed.

Prices have changed slightly for the new year, with Mitsubishi's website listing recommended drive-away prices for private buyers at $47,490 drive-away for the GLX, $53,740 drive-away for the GLS and $60,990 for the flagship Exceed – up $500 for GLX and Exceed variants, but down $250 for the GLS grade.

The entry-level GLX gains adaptive cruise control for the new year, now making it standard across the range.

Above and throughout: 2020 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. Exceed pictured in white, GLS in burgundy red.

Meanwhile, the seven-seat-only GLS gains satellite navigation, but swaps 2020 cars' power-adjustable front leather seats for manually-adjustable cloth pews, with the leather-trimmed seats moved to a $2250 GLS Deluxe option package, alongside a 360-degree camera.

The flagship Exceed carries over into 2021 unchanged.

Seven colours are on offer: White, White Diamond, Sterling Silver, Graphite Grey, Black Mica, Dark Blue and Terra Rossa. The Deep Bronze and Titanium Grey shades offered in 2020 have been axed for the new year.

All models continue to seek power from a 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, sending 133kW of power and 430Nm of torque to all wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2021 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is on sale now.
