The new Pajero Sport line-up is priced at Bt1.299 million for the 2WD GT, Bt1.469 million for the 2WD Gt-Premium and Bt1.599 million for the 4WD GT-Premium. The models were previously priced at Bt1.301 million, Bt1.404 million and Bt1.544 million respectively.
The improved version has a more sophisticated design, with a higher bonnet that exhibits a deeper, more aggressive front.
The Pajero Sport, which is assembled at Mitsubishi’s Laem Chabang plant in Chon Buri, comes with a new 8-inch colour LCD meter, Smartphone-Link Display Audio (SDA) and an electrically-powered tailgate with hands-free function. The automaker says the remote-control unit is capable of sending notifications to the driver’s smartphone in situations such as when the tailgate has been left open or when the headlights have been left on.
The powered tailgate can also be opened and closed via a smartphone, while the tailgate reservation system opens or closes the tailgate automatically when the owner approaches or leaves the vehicle.
Other intelligent features include Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
A new off-road mode selector for the 4WD model improves off-road capability by adjusting engine power, transmission settings and brake power. New AC power outlet and USB input positions at the rear also provide improved usability for all passengers.
Last year, Mitsubishi sold a total of 77,000 units of the Pajero Sport globally, and the 2019 model will be launched in 90 markets worldwide, Mitsubishi said.
