The official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors in Ukraine, the company EM EM SI Ukraine, announces the start of sales of the new Mitsubishi PAJERO SPORT from February 1, 2020. The legendary PAJERO SPORT received a new Dynamic Shield appearance, an 8-inch digital instrument panel, power tailgate, as well as many other pleasant and long-awaited updates. And, of course, PAJERO SPORT remains the king of all-wheel drive with the proprietary Super Select 4WD-II system and a sturdy frame structure.
The new PAJERO SPORT is the true embodiment of Mitsubishi Motors’ main slogan – Drive Your Ambition, as well as the proud successor to the legendary PAJERO. It successfully combines a bold, decisive appearance, emphasizing the willingness to answer the challenge, as well as the maximum off-road qualities that take drivers to a new level of drive thanks to outstanding performance, functionality and reliability combined with the extreme comfort of a business class.
Along with the L200 and ASX models, which were presented in Ukraine in 2019, the new PAJERO SPORT received a powerful sculptural design Dynamic Shield. Thanks to this, the front part looks wider and visually emphasizes the strength and dynamics of the SUV, stating the seriousness of its character, as well as the opportunities to meet with any road obstacles. At the same time, chrome body parts emphasize the sophistication and elegance of the front of the car, declaring itself to be a business class SUV.
The new PAJERO SPORT also has a new functional headlight design. The new main LED headlights make the “look” of the SUV bolder, emphasize the stability of the car. The headlight blocks, which are located on the outside of the front bumper, have a functional design and further emphasize the width of the body. The combination of design solutions suggests that the car belongs to the highest class. And the combination of the rear LED lights in a typical vertical design was divided into a brake light and a parking light.
Significant changes have also occurred in the interior, which are aimed at the maximum convenience and comfort of both the driver and passengers. One of the key updates to PAJERO SPORT is the 8-inch color LCD instrument panel display, which combines speedometer, tachometer and other car information in three easy-to-read menu options. Also, the changes affected the multimedia system. Now it is an updated Mitsubishi Connect 2 with an 8-inch touch screen, introduced earlier in the new ASX and Outlander. Only in the new version of Pajero Sport is it possible to connect TomTom navigation systems.
The new PAJERO SPORT has received important technical updates that focus on driver comfort and safety. For the first time in the history of the brand, the SUV is equipped with electric tailgate doors and offers several useful features. Now the trunk can be opened by moving your foot under the rear bumper from two angles – left and right, where the sensors for contactless control of the trunk are installed. Also, the owner of the SUV can set a comfortable height for lifting the door, for which it is necessary to select the desired height for lifting and fix it by long pressing the control button.
New is the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) warning system for lateral rear traffic when reversing. The system will help when leaving a parking space or garage with a limited lateral view. If the radar sensor detects a vehicle that is moving in the direction of your car, the system will warn the driver about the danger of a collision. Possible obstacles and the threat of collision will be signaled by a new function in the Multi Around Monitor. The driver will hear a beep and an icon will appear on the display if ultrasonic sensors detect an obstacle. Radar radars are also used by the Lane Change Assist (LCA). If a car is detected in an adjacent lane at high speed, and the driver is tuned into this lane, the system will warn of danger by winking an indicator in the corresponding mirror. These new systems are aimed at avoiding emergency situations.
The PAJERO SPORT 2020 model year is equipped with a powerful 2.4 liter diesel engine with a turbine and the MIVEC system, which is designed to provide power in movement in all circumstances, traction characteristics over a wide speed range, and at the same time offers excellent fuel efficiency. All branded developments of Mitsubishi Motors engineers provide the ability to achieve a maximum power of 133 kW at 3500 rpm. (181 hp) and a maximum torque of 430 Nm at 2500 rpm. And 400 Nm from 1,500 rpm.
An 8-speed automatic with Sport Mode manual gearbox deserves special attention. Thanks to a large selection of speeds, the transmission provides engine efficiency, smooth acceleration, and reduced fuel consumption. And Sport Mode helps the driver to better control driving. You can use the gearshift lever or shift paddles (petals) to change the gear (speed), as desired by the driver. This feature will appeal to drivers who are faced with off-road, have a sporty driving style or want to accelerate when overtaking on the highway.
And, of course, the main distinguishing feature of PAJERO SPORT is the Super Select 4WD-II all-wheel drive system. The system offers 4 modes that switch easily while driving. First of all, this is 2H mode (rear-wheel drive) for driving on dry asphalt, which also allows you to save fuel. 4H mode connects all-wheel drive, which helps you to drive confidently on country, slippery or snowy roads. 4HLc mode provides a central differential lock for safe movement on snow, ice, sand and difficult terrain. The 4LLc mode locks the rear differential and, when downshifted, helps to move in severe off-road conditions with maximum torque and traction. And such a system as Off Road Mode allows you to choose 1 of 4 types of coverage for maximum grip. It is enough to press the selector button a few times and it will stop on the desired coverage: GRAVEL (gravel), MUD / SNOW (dirt / snow), SAND (sand), ROCK (stones, available only for the 4LLc position).
Three all-wheel-drive configurations with a 2.4 liter MIVEC diesel engine with a capacity of 181 hp will be presented in Ukraine.
