2015 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport automatic launched in India at Rs 23.55 lakh

15 Nov 2014 / 3

Mitsubishi launched the Pajero Sport automatic in India on November 14 at Rs 23.55 lakh (ex-Delhi). The new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport automatic gets exterior updates over the manual version. Changes to the interiors  include the additions Mitsubishi made to the limited edition variant launched a few weeks back. These comprise a navigation system, integrated DVD player, reverse parking assist as well as a cooler box located in the boot.

Under the hood, the Pajero Sport automatic continues with the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder turbodiesel. While power remains the same 178PS, torque has been detuned to 350Nm from the manual’s 400Nm. Mitsubishi is not offering the Pajero Sport automatic with a 4×4 option. The five-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels in the AT and chances are high that it will be more fuel efficient than the 4×4. The Pajero Sport manual claims a fuel efficiency of 12.1kmpl.

The Pajero Sport automatic will appeal to those looking for a stress-free driving experience along with the dominating presence of an SUV. The SUV will compete with the Santa Fe, Honda CR-V, Fortuner and Rexton automatic variants. The only limiting factors will be the lack of a 4×4 for off-roading and the relatively smaller number of sales and service outlets for Mitsubishi in India.
