MMC has released a video of the new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport on its Facebook page. The product video, which is slightly over four minutes long, details the Triton pick-up truck-based SUV, and features key men in its development. MMC’s Koichi Namiki, Corporate GM of the Global Pickup Project Promotion Office; and Tsunehiro Kunimoto, Corporate GM of Design Office share their thoughts.

The new Pajero Sport made its world debut in Thailand in August, and will be heading to Malaysia in the near future. This time around, the truck-based SUV – which like before has three rows of seven seats – is a lot more than just a Triton with a canopy.

The concept behind the design is “dynamic cruising off-roader” and the SUV wears MMC’s latest “Dynamic Shield” face, as seen on the marque’s concept cars. It, and the unique long-tailed tail lamps, give the design a “futuristic” feel.

Inside, the video highlights the Pajero Sport’s high centre console that provides a “comfortable personalised space” for the driver. Incidentally, this is the major difference between its cabin and the Triton’s, although the basic architecture is shared. The SUV also gets its own four-spoke steering wheel (design mirror’s the car’s face?) and plusher seats. The PS is also claimed to have a “superbly silent driving experience in the class”.

The Pajero Sport is powered by a new “clean diesel” 2.4 litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine with 181 hp and 430 Nm, as seen in the Thai-market Triton (Malaysia gets an upgraded version of the old 2.5 VGT), matched to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. A 17% improvement in fuel efficiency over the old model is claimed. There’s also a “high power” gasoline option using the 6B31 3.0 litre V6.

The powertrain is paired with MMC’s Super Select 4WD-II system that allows for shift on the fly from the default rear-wheel drive to 4WD. Something new is the off-road select function, an off-road mode that gives the PS gravel, mud/snow, sand and rock traversing ability with a button press. The turning radius is a good 5.6 metres.

Finally, the video points out the Pajero Sport’s tech features, which includes an electronic parking brake, multi around monitor system (bird’s eye for parking), blind spot warning, forward collision mitigation and Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System. The latter prevents sudden forward or reverse starts caused by stepping on wrong pedal.

The new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is pretty impressive compared to the car it replaces, but the segment has moved on too, and classmates include the handsome new Ford Everest and the market-leading new Toyota Fortuner. There’s also the older Isuzu MU-X. Like what you see?
