The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a large SUV that excels off-road but remains comfortable – and easy to drive – on the road.
The current Mitsubishi Pajero Sport succeeded the Mitsubishi Challenger, which was also an off-road based SUV.
There are five-seat and seven-seat versions, both offering excellent fuel economy from a modern diesel engine and an eight-speed automatic gearbox. All have autonomous emergency braking and integrate smartphones well. The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport was developed alongside the Triton ute, sharing a number of parts.
Pricing begins just over $45,000 and hits $57,000 for the most expensive variant. Popular variants in the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport range include the GLS, GLX and top-spec Exceed.
Both 4x2 and 4x4 versions are available, and the range is powered by a single 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine.
Can you drive the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport to the outback?
The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport would be a good choice for travelling through the Australian outback due to the long-range diesel fuel tank, off-road ability and the expansive Mitsubishi dealer network for repairs.
Does the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport have Apple CarPlay?
The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
