The new Pajero Sport has landed in New Zealand and Mitsubishi has big plans for it. The ‘Sport comes to New Zealand as two models, both powered by the Triton’s 135kW/437Nm 2.4-litre diesel four-cylinder engine, hooked up to an all-new eight-speed transmission.
The XLS kicks off the range at $58,990 and comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and start, privacy glass, daytime running lights, climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Mitsubishi’s new Smartphone Link Display Audio system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and is controlled via a seven-inch touchscreen.
The VRX tops the range at $63,990 and adds 18-inch machine finish alloy wheels, LED headlights, DRLs and taillights, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, a premium eight-speaker audio system, dual zone climate control, a reversing camera, forward collision mitigation, blind spot warning, an ultrasonic mis-acceleration prevention system, automatic headlights and rain sensing wipers.
A seven-seat version of the Pajero Sport is expected to arrive in New Zealand later in 2016 and will ask a $2,000 premium on both the XLS and VRX models.
