Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a 4x4 SUV which slots below the full-size Pajero off-roader but above the mid-size Outlander in Mitsubishi’s SUV line-up.

It replaced the Challenger in 2015, with a bold design language and grew to include five and seven-seat variants.

From launch it was available with the same 2.4-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine as the Triton ute it shares much of its underpinnings with, along with its eight-speed torque converter automatic.

Prices range from $46,490 for the Pajero Sport GLX (4x4) 5 Seat to $57,190 for the Pajero Sport Exceed (4x4) 7 Seat.

The Pajero Sport’s key rivals include the Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X and Holden Trailblazer.

This vehicle is also known as Mitsubishi Montero Sport, Mitsubishi Shogun Sport, Mitsubishi Strada G-Wagon (Thailand), Mitsubishi Nativa, Beijing BJ2025.

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2019: The steering wheel column disconnected into two parts

    I’ve heard of a few Mitsubishis whose owners have experience creaks or knocks coming from the steering column, but yours is the first one I’ve heard of where the column has actually separated. The fact that it happened on the move is crazy and makes me wonder whether it was a one-off or whether this could develop into a trend. Like all modern vehicles, the Pajero Sport uses a collapsible steering column which is designed to collapse in a crash to avoid protruding any further into the cabin. Perhaps it’s this joint that has failed, but I really can’t say without looking at the vehicle.

    Whether Mitsubishi will offer you your money back will probably be dependent on a few things, including whether the vehicle has been modified in any way and whether it believes those changes may have contributed to the failure.

    As well as contacting the dealer – which you clearly have – the other piece of advice would be to contact Mitsubishi Australia’s Customer Service Department on 1300 131211 immediately and get the ball rolling towards a resolution.

  • Mitsubishi Pajero 2018: Should I use manual mode while towing?

    You have a very common-sense approach to this Neil, and I agree with your theory 100 per cent. Towing a heavy load in an overdriven gear – whether it’s a manual or automatic gearbox – is not a great idea. Some gearboxes are obviously stronger than others, but even so, I reckon it’s just a good policy based on the principles of mechanical sympathy.

    Towing in overdrive places huge stresses on the mechanical components of a gearbox – a piece of equipment that already has its back to the wall with 2.3 tonnes of caravan trying to drag it to a stop – and limiting the load and stresses by sticking with a ratio no higher than direct-drive (1:1) just makes sense. Think of it like your legs when riding a push-bike: Using a higher gear is fine until the driveline starts to load up, such as when climbing a hill (or towing a caravan in your car) at which point you need to shift to a lower gear to avoid your leg muscles exploding.

    You’re right in suggesting that your car heads for the higher gears in a hurry to reduce fuel consumption, and this is one of those times when the manufacturer has placed the official fuel-consumption number on the windscreen sticker over common-sense. Not that Mitsubishi is the only offender (far from it) but it remains that the engine and gearbox have been calibrated for maximum fuel economy rather than maximum mechanical sympathy.

    Ands let’s be honest, with a big caravan hitched up behind, no vehicle is going to record brilliant fuel consumption figures, is it?

  • What towing vehicle should I buy?

    Your towing needs will dictate a big car. Others you could consider are the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Isuzu MU-X, Holden Trailblazer, or Ford Everest.
