The all-new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, which went on sale internationally in 2015, is expected to arrive in India by April 2018. The third generation of the Pajero Sport is expected to receive cosmetic updates and a few tweaks in its drivetrain.
The exterior is revamped and the new car loses the entire rugged look, instead it carries a more futuristic design. A large grille up front with chrome garnishes and sharp LED DRL inserts in the headlamp assemble take the premium SUV look up by a few notches. The side exhibits large fenders and neatly integrated foot board. The rear is styled similar with futuristic tail lamp and an upswept rear bumper for a greater departure angle.
Inside the cabin is a restyled dashboard with a touch screen infotainment system. The new car gets a redesigned steering wheel with steering mounted controls and behind it is a new refreshed instrument cluster unit.
Powering the new Pajero Sport would be the same 2.5-litre turbo diesel engine producing 175bhp. Current generation gets a five-speed automatic and a five-speed manual gearbox though the new generation is expected to get an all-new gearbox. The ‘Super select’ four-wheel drive system from Mitsubishi will continue to stay on offer.
There is no official word from Mitsubishi though the reports suggest the new Pajero Sport to make its way to the Indian shore in due course of time. The new SUV from the Japanese manufacturer, Mitsubishi, is expected to be showcased in the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo. Post its launch the new Pajero Sport will continue its competition with the Ford Endeavour, Isuzu MU-X and Toyota Fortuner.[Source”pcworld”]a
