The iconic Pajero has been refined from the inside out, with interior and exterior cosmetic updates and an upgraded NVH package contributing to a quieter, more comfortable on-road performance.
The Pajero’s tough exterior has been enhanced with sophisticated styling features including a new front bumper, chrome radiator grille and new spare tyre cover design. Inside, a new centre panel design and chrome air conditioning dials brighten the appearance. Flexible seating for up to seven people is now standard across the range maximising space and functionality.
Significant NVH upgrades on all automatic models have improved cabin quietness with new dash panel acoustic insulation material. For extra isolation performance, noise absorbing material has been added to the engine hood, top cowl, floor area, headlining, rear quarter trim and front transmission tunnel area. A noise insulation layer has also been added to the laminated firewall material.
Recommended retail prices have been rolled back across a new three model structure with the GLX manual starting from $50,990 RRP.
Even the entry-level Pajero GLX has an extensive list of luxurious features including 18-inch alloy wheels, front LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRL), privacy glass and chrome outer door handles and mirrors for added style. The masculine exterior is complemented with front mud guards, side steps and rear deflector. High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps come as standard to help improve visibility on and off the road and a rear differential lock enhances the Pajero’s superior 4WD capabilities.
The mid-range Pajero GLS replaces the GLX-R and VRX models, with an RRP of $58,990. The GLS gains the Mitsubishi Multi Communication System (MMCS) with satellite navigation, reversing sensors, rain sensing wipers and dusk sensing headlamps. Inside, heated and power front seats and partial leather seat trim offer added comfort.
The top of the range Pajero Exceed is packed with stylish features for the ultimate in superior four-wheel driving. Electric sunroof with slide and tilt, sport pedals, chrome windscreen and side protection moulding and a wood and leather four-spoke steering wheel enhance the interior appearance.
Automatic high beam is a new feature on the Pajero Exceed. A forward facing camera located in the rear view mirror bracket senses oncoming vehicle headlights and adjusts accordingly to allow the driver to stay focused on the road at all times. The Pajero Exceed is available from $65,990 RRP.
