Mitsubishi has released details of its new Pajero Sport SUV scheduled to arrive here late in 2019.

This is an important part of the company’s offering, scoring 77,000 sales globally in 2018.

The new unit looks better inside and outside – “a sculptured and powerful appearance” -- and it’s more comfortable. 

The signature Dynamic Shield frontal aspect has evolved on the new vehicle to allow better visibility, a wider stance and a deeper front face accentuated with the use of more chrome.

Inside the Pajero Sport, an easy to read 8-inch colour LCD meter combines with an 8-inch smartphone link display and audio system.

Also, a refreshed floor console and the use of softer padded areas enhance the overall look, while storage trays and power and USB plugs in the rear should keep occupants happy. 

The power tailgate has a new hands-free feature with smartphone connectivity, enabling the driver to open or close the tailgate remotely on approach or departure.

Power is provided by the 2.4L Mivec turbo diesel matched to an 8-speed automatic transmission which in turn works with the Super-Select 4WD system. 

Clever control of engine output, transmission and braking power is said to improve off-road performance and self-extraction capabily.
