On paper, MItsubishi's new Pajero Sport has what it takes to take on the competition. We drive it in the real world to see how good it is.
The Pajero Sport has a lot going for it. It has a strong diesel engine, a spacious and comfortable cabin, and impressive levels of fit and finish. It is well specified and comes from a long line of successful Mitsubishi SUVs. What might let it down though, is that at Rs 23.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), it is approximately Rs 2.5 lakh more than the Toyota Fortuner, which means it is a contender, but a pricey one. Its handling may not be anywhere as sharp as we’d hoped and it can’t be bought with an automatic yet, but looked at as an overall package, it’s impressive enough to take on the best in its class. Mitsubishi and the once popular Pajero sure have come a long way.
