MITSUBISHI has given its Pajero Sport a fresh update, with the 2020 model highlighted by a new-look front-end, a power tailgate, and a new digital instrument display.

This new Pajero Sport doesn’t only bring a facelift, it’s improved for more practical use. There are a number of small, subtle changes in this new model that all add up to deliver a greatly better ownership experience.

That digital dash is an eight-inch colour LCD instrument panel that is only available on Exceed models, while Apple CarPlay/Android Auto is 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.

Punters 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 any 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 due to their popularity and great performance.

New safety kit for 2020 includes Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), while carryover safety features include Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Emergency Stop Signal system (ESS), Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control.

Buyers now also have the choice of two brand-new hues: White Diamond and Graphite Grey (metallic).
