Pajero Sport VGT Euro_1

Following the pattern set by last year’s limited edition ASX Euro and Triton VGT Euro, now it’s the Pajero Sport’s turn to get the Euro treatment. The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport VGT Euro, to give it its full name, is limited to 250 units – the largest number among the Euro brigade yet – and is priced at RM180,550 without insurance.

The RM13k premium over the standard Pajero Sport VGT model, which is already well specced for its class, gets you a few key and welcome additions that include a sunroof, six airbags, eight-way driver’s powered seat and an exterior bodykit pack comprising of a front airdam and rear garnish. Not bad eh?

That’s on top of the standard-issue touchscreen GPS navigation system with Bluetooth connectivity and reverse camera functions, leather upholstery, auto lights and wipers, auto climate control, cruise control and magnesium paddle shifters for the five-speed INVECS-II automatic gearbox.

Power comes from the familiar VGT-equipped 2.5 litre turbodiesel engine in the range-topping Triton and Pajero Sport, with peak power of 178 PS and 350 Nm of torque from 1,800 to 3,500 rpm. So it’s powerful, and now very well equipped with premium and safety features; do you approve?
