Mitsubishi Pajero

To tap the huge potential of the SUV market in India, Mitsubishi . with its Indian partner Hindustan Motors (HM), imported the Pajero in March 2002. Initially, the Pajero was to be imported as completely-built-unit and sold in select dealerships in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Chandigarh. Now, HM produces the lower-end 2,800cc diesel version of the vehicle, importing complete knock-down units.

The new Mitsubishi Pajero SFX has received a refreshing facelift. The vehicle is assembled at HM#8217;s Thiruvallur (Tamil Nadu) plant, where it produces Mitsubishi#8217;s mid-size car Lancer. This third-generation Pajero is available globally with a 3.2L diesel, engine but in India it is powered by a 2.8L turbo-diesel engine. Adopting a #8216;One Country One Price#8217; policy, Mitsubishi vehicles are priced the same throughout the length and breadth of the country.

In India, the Pajero SFX is available in one variant.

The 2.8-litre, 8-valve, Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC), turbo-charged and intercooled diesel engine cranks out 117 bhp at 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 292 Nm at 2,000 rpm. This heady engine generates stupendous power to take the Pajero to a maximum speed of 150 km/h. The SUV clocks 0-100 kmph in just 17 seconds and returns 8/11 km/l (city/highway).

The low-revving engine is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission to offer smooth shifts and also high as well as low gear ratios.

This off-road performer is constructed on a body-on-frame pattern that stands out in competition when it comes to tough roads. The front double wishbone setup with torsion plus stabilizer bar, and the rear 3-link coil spring and rigid axle with stabiliser bar arrangement is extremely efficient during off-road driving. The SUV is precisely tuned to provide stability and no body roll even at high speed.

Pajero#8217;s body is exceptionally strong for rugged terrain and is efficient on highways.

The Pajero has a body-on-ladder design; it has a tall stance with good ground clearance. The SUV#8217;s bulky body and bumpers give it a masculine look. Its silver-coloured bumper runs across the body like cladding and garnishes the door. The chromed handle, side mirrors and six-spoke alloy wheels add some gloss to the SUV.

With dual-coloured interiors and body-coloured headrests, the interiors of the Pajero are sporty and practical. Especially built for off-road driving, the leather seats are well bolstered.

The four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel design is impressive unlike the instrument cluster, which has straight lines all over. To add more comfort, the first and the second row seats get unique hand-rests with cup holders. Ash trays have been installed on the door sides.

Air vents are installed individually for all rows to maintain uniform temperature all over. The driver#8217;s seat is height adjustable with lumbar adjusters, the second row seats recline, and the second and the third row seats are fully foldable to make space for luggage.
