All-new model to launch in the UK too next year.

Mitsubishi will expand the sales of the all-new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport to more markets next year. The all-new Pajero Sport, which went on sale internationally in 2015, will arrive in India in April 2018, says a new report from Autocar India. Previous reports have said that UK launch (as the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport) is also due next year.

The latest Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a tough ladder-frame SUV based on the Mitsubishi Triton. The mid-size SUV measures 4,785 mm in length, 1,815 mm in width and 1,800 mm (W/O roof rails)/1,805 mm (with roof rails) in height, has a wheelbase of 2,800 mm and offers a ground clearance of 218 mm. It is available in 5-seat and 7-seat seating layouts.

The right-hand drive Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is available with three engines: 4D56 2.5-litre diesel (2WD/4WD), 4N15 2.4-litre diesel (2WD/4WD) and 6B31 3.0-litre MIVEC petrol (2WD). The Indian-spec 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will have the 4N15 2.4-litre diesel engine under the hood. This is the only engine available that is Euro 4-compliant, and with a 4WD system. It produces 133 kW (178.28 hp) at 3,500 rpm and 430 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. Power is sent to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and distributed among them through the Super Select 4WD-II four-wheel drive system. Rear differential lock and limited slip differential are optional, while an electric parking brake is standard in the 4WD model.

The all-new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will compete with the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Isuzu MU-X in India. The current model starts at INR 27.42 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and the new generation’s price would depend on the way it is imported to India. Old reports have said that India will get the all-new Pajero Sport via the CKD route from Thailand, and in that case, a starting price of around INR 25 lakh is possible, which would help Mitsubishi compete well with the arch rivals.
