A Look at the Pajero Sport 2015

The Pajero Sport 2015 must be described as a utility-based vehicle that will stand as the testimony of your class. In this article, we will be discussing about the most prominent features of this Mitsubishi creation. If you are planning to bring this new version of the vehicle in your garage, this discussion will surely help you.

The company has made this version of the Pajero Sport more handsome and distinctive by giving it an outstanding new face. The car’s rear has also been changed for better. Now it has an adventurous rear equipped with LED tail lights and much longer rear overhand. In short, the unit looks more attractive than ever before.

The best thing about the above mentioned changes is that they have not interfered with the off-road ability of the vehicle. Mitsubishi has kept the car’s ground clearance unchanged; it still has ground clearance of 218 mm. The Japanese automaker has also not altered the new Pajero Sport’s departure, ramp-over angles and carry-over approach. According to the company, those features of the SUV are already class-leading.

If you are wondering whether you will be able to take your new Pajero Sport everywhere you go, rest assured. Tests conducted in Japan showed that this Mitsubishi creation will offer great performance on all kinds of terrains. The feature that is primarily responsible for making the Pajero Sport an all-terrain car is its generous suspension articulation and under-body clearance.

Let us now talk about the most important feature of any car, its engine. This unit has borrowed its engine from the Mk5 Triton. To be more precise, the car comes equipped with the Japanese firm’s newest 4N15 2.4 l MIVEC 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine. The engine is capable of generating power of 133 kilowatts at 3500 rotations per minute and torque of 430 Nm at 2500 rotations per minute.

The vehicle’s braked towing capacity has been augmented. Earlier it was 3000 kg and now the company has increased it by 100 kg. The car’s kerb weight has also been increased by 70 kg, which means the car now weighs 2070 kg without any passenger or luggage in it. In spite of increasing the SUV’s kerb weight, the automaker has managed to keep it lighter than the majority of its rivals. Rival vehicle models like Fortuner, Everest and Colorado weigh 2135 kg, 2495 kg and 2205 kg respectively.

Mitsubishi is saying that they have also improved the Pajero Sport’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Only time will be able to tell whether these claims made by the Japanese company are true.
