Now, it’s the show time. Mitsubishi Pajero Automatic is finally launched in India at Rs 23.55 lakh ex-showroom Delhi.
The SUV with automatic transmission comes in the variant of 4×2 which is below the top-of-the-line 4×4.
Nothing except the gearbox is changed. Engine deployed under the hood is 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel turbo that makes a good 175.5bhp and 351Nm of torque. Power is sent to rear wheels and a five-speed automatic transmission takes care of the rest. Paddle-shifters flanked behind the steering wheel makes that task easier.
Trims of Pajero Sport automatic features infotainment system, automatic climate control and reverse parking camera on the list.
Toyota Fortuner and Hyundai Santa Fe are its major rivals in the competition.
