Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2020 uncovered: New look and added safety for large SUV off-roader

The updated Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will be available in Australia in January, sporting a new look and updated equipment.

Mitsubishi has lifted the silk off its facelifted Pajero Sport large SUV, which will land in Australian showrooms in January wearing the front fascia adopted from its mechanically related Triton sibling and boosted safety equipment.

Now sporting Mitsubishi’s updated ‘Dynamic Shield’ front grille, the new Pajero Sport is easily distinguished by its reworked foglights, thicker chrome elements and higher bonnet line, which are designed to emphasis “the sense of wideness”, according to the brand.

At the rear, the polarising tail-light design remains, however a tweak to the lower reflectors mean the red element ends at the lower bumper. The reflectors meanwhile, have been integrated into the lower kick plate.

The 2020 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport wears a slightly redesigned front and rear.

Inside, the new Pajero Sport also gains an updated multimedia screen and colour LCD driver display, both measuring 8.0 inches, as well as more storage in centre tunnel and padded interior door handles.

Rear passengers are also treated to an additional AC power outlet alongside the existing USB plug.

The Pajero Sport will also feature smartphone integration, with an application available for owners to lock and unlock the doors, and open and close the powered tailgate.

Owners can also set a proximity alert, which can open the tailgate once within Bluetooth range.

Mechanically, the Pajero Sport is still powered by the same 133kW/430Nm 2.4-litre Mivec turbo-diesel powerplant and eight-speed automatic transmission combination.

A new instrument panel updates the interior of the new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.

Drive is sent to all four wheels via ‘Mitsubishi’s Super-Select 4WD-II’ system with switchable all-terrain driving modes.
Like the Triton pick-up that was updated earlier this year, the new Pajero Sport also gains new safety features such as lane-change assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

Australia pricing and exact specifications will be revealed closer to launch, but for reference, the current kicks off at $46,490 before on-road costs for the five-seat GLX grade and tops at $54,490 for the Exceed seven-seater.
