Are we hearing something about Mitsubishi Pajero in the recent past? If yes, the truth has to be told at least now for my beloved readers; all-new Mitsubishi 2016 Pajero Sport had been revealed. Also, heard of Mitsubishi Lancer? If again yes, the brand says it who they’re.
This time around, a more realistic image of the upcoming SUV has surfaced via a computer rendering. The rendering clearly showcases the Japanese carmaker’s latest ‘Dynamic’ design language and similar to most carmakers, the new design language will eventually make it onto more Mitsubishi cars.
Overall, the design of the new Pajero Sport is inspired by the GR-HEV concept which was shown at the 2013 edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
When has to be told something about the interiors of this massive SUV, The front wears chrome garnishing and the grille extends right to the sleek headlamps; right below the thick grille is a large opening for the air dam and underneath that is a skid plate; flanking which on both the sides are rounded fog lamps.
Mitsubishi’s 2016 model of the Pajero Sport shares the basic design of its bonnet, front doors and windshield with the latest Triton pickup, and both the new models share a similar body-on-frame platform. The interior design of the all-new Pajero Sport shares certain resemblance to the new Triton, but it is likely that the Mitsubishi will make a few changes to the cabin of the 2016 Pajero Sport to set it apart from the Triton pickup.
Based on the same ladder-frame platform as the new Mitsubishi Triton pickup, the new Pajero Sport is expected to get the redesigned 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, the relatively high-set center console with automatic climate control and a spacious rear bench capable of accommodating three adults with relative ease.
After some tweaking, the interior, the space gets more and occupants can hurry fast to get inside. The new model will be loaded with features such as automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlights, electric push-button start, powered front seats, a new multifunction 3-spoke steering wheel, 6-inch colour touchscreen, reverse parking camera and a navigation system.
Powering the 2016 Pajero Sport will be Mitsubishi’s all-new MIVEC engine that displaces 2.4 litres. This 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine will produce 178bhp and 430 Nm of twist, and will be married to a new 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. It certainly depends on the market; Mitsubishi will offer the 2016 Pajero Sport in RWD and 4WD versions.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is set for launch in Thailand towards the end of 2015, with an Indian launch expected to happen somewhere in late 2016 or early 2017.
