Refreshed Mitsubishi Pajero Sport on sale now
Mitsubishi has given their Pajero Sport a facelift come this 2020 season. The 2020 model bolstered by a new-look front-end, a power tailgate and a new digital instrument display.
The Pajero Sport’s front-end has been given the same treatment that the Triton ute scored during its midlife refresh in 2019, with Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ design concept giving the Sport more chrome and a wider, bolder visual punch. However, the changes do run deeper than a facelift.
“The new model adds some important functionality that I think will please Australian drivers; the digital dash, the power tailgate and more practical and thoughtful spec changes such as small-item storage and turning lamps that will improve the overall driving experience.”
That digital dash is an eight-inch colour LCD instrument panel which is only available on Exceed models, while Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are accessible via the smartphone-link display audio (SDA) system. A nifty remote control app has also been developed, which allows the user to control aspects of the vehicle (again, Exceed only) remotely including the all-new power tailgate.
Pajero owners can now open and shut the tailgate via hands-free operation, thanks to a kick-motion sensor positioned beneath the rear bar. Another clever feature of the power tailgate is a switch-operated intermediate stop, which can stop the tailgate at a desired position.
All else remains the same, with the 2.4-litre MIVEC turbo-diesel engine and eight-speed automatic transmission (yes, auto only) staying put. The four-cylinder unit musters a claimed 133kW and 430Nm.
The established Super Select 4WD-II drivetrain also carries over and continues to offer four drive modes: 2H, 4H, 4HLc and 4LLc. Introduced with the MY19 update, the 4WD models retain the Off-Road Mode Selector that regulates drivetrain componentry (transmission, braking and engine torque) to maximise all-terrain performance. The Selector offers the choice of Gravel, Mud/Snow, Sand and Rock modes.
Independent front suspension with double wishbones and a live-axle three-link rear set-up have been retained.
New safety kit for 2020 includes Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, while carryover safety features include Electronic Brake Force Distribution , Emergency Stop Signal system , Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control.
Buyers now also have the choice of two brand-new hues: White Diamond and Graphite Grey (metallic).
The third-generation Pajero Sport enters its fifth year of production this year, with the off-road capable wagon first launched back in August 2015. As June 2019, approximately 260,000 units have been produced.
