Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2.5


Whether you’re cruising through the city or trying to get away from it, the Pajero Sport 4WD has been described as the ‘perfect companion’.

That being said, I must agree by adding that this vehicle was a great travel companion for our weekend excursion to Montagu. It provided us with maximum comfort and ease along Route 62, as well as when navigating the tight dirt road within the Montagu Guano Caves resort estate. Living up to its purpose (built tough, comfortable, safe and spacious), the Pajero Sport proved itself to be an ideal vehicle for family holidays, weekend getaways and all those long drives inbetween. It boasts massive interior space with 3 rows and 7 seats and, although we were only two this weekend, the amount of luggage and camping equipment we brought with us was enough to cater for a large family! Luckily for us, the Pajero Sport offered a flexible choice of seat arrangements for carrying all our extra cargo, and still with some space to spare, so we weren’t squashed in like sardines! The interior cabin is large and airy, with tons of leg and shoulder room for everybody on board and, with the easy-opening tailgate, loading and unloading once we got to our camp was a breeze.

The Pajero Sport powerful diesel engine comes with an enhanced Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT), resulting in a quiet, smooth, fuel-efficient and low-emission engine. The vehicle’s sports mode allows you to enjoy the ease and comfort of an auto-matic SUV, with the option of changing to the versatility and control of tiptronic mode. The clutch-free action reduces the rev and torque that occurs when engaging gears, so you are able to keep your momentum going when driving in off-road situations. With electronic controls on the steering wheel, as well as magnesium paddleshifts just behind the wheel, I was able to control the infotainment system as well as make quick gears changes, without my hands ever leaving the wheel.
