When it comes to parking or backing into tight spots, Pajero displays great manoeuvrability. When reverse gear is engaged, the reverse camera image appears automatically on the dash screen. If you’re driving a GLS or Exceed, you have the benefit of reverse sensors that warn you if you’re getting too close to objects behind you.
Pajero’s Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is fitted with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) ensuring even, efficient distribution of braking power to each wheel, regardless of cargo or passenger load and road surface. It’s all about maximising braking power and driving stability for your care.
Active Traction Control (ATC) helps maintain traction on the most slippery or rugged surfaces, automatically controlling the engine’s output so driving wheels are prevented from spinning. Sensing loss of traction in independent wheels, ATC applies braking force to that particular wheel and sends extra power and torque to other wheels with traction, to keep the vehicle moving.
Active Stability Control (ASC) intuitively recognises when you over-steer or under-steer and applies brake force to appropriate wheels to keep you online through corners.
The Pajero GLS and Exceed models are equipped with front wipers that activate automatically when moisture is detected on the windscreen, allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel and your focus on the road ahead.
Dusk sensing headlamps on the Pajero GLS and Exceed models automatically illuminate in fading light or when you’re travelling through a tunnel.
The Mitsubishi RISE body system combines an energy absorbing front section with a strong, rigid occupant cell to provide outstanding protection in the event of an accident. Crushable zones teamed with a straight frame chassis and octagonal section frames are designed to absorb and dissipate energy from the passenger compartment.
Pajero is fitted with driver and front passenger SRS airbags. Side and curtain airbags are also standard fitment on all models protecting against side-on collision, inflating from the side of the seat to protect the torso and from the roof lining to protect the head.
It’s the small things that make Pajero such a legend, like headlamp washers on the GLS and Exceed models that ensure the road ahead is well lit.
