Mitsubishi Motors is all set to introduce the Pajero Sport 4x2 AT on November 15 in the country. The company dealers, across the nation, have officially started taking the pre-orders for the same from November 5. The Japanese automajor today confirmed the same by releasing a teaser image on its official Twitter handle. The Pajero 4X2 AT would be the second variant in the SUV lineup and would be priced less than the top-end 4X4 manual variant.

The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 4X2 AT would be identical to the existing 4X4 manual variant. It wouldn't bear any cosmetic or mechanical changes, except for the newly introduced 5-speed auto transmission. The 4X2 AT variant would be powered by the same 2.5L, 4-cylinder, turbocharged CRDI diesel motor which is seen in the current 4X4 variant. The maximum power and peak torque aren't going to differ either from the 4X4 variant as they would be 178 PS and 400Nm, respectively. A 5-speed automatic gearbox would transfer the power to the rear wheels of the SUV. The company feels that the introduction of a new variant with automatic gearbox would increase the sales of Pajero Sport SUV and the buyers would have an option of automatic variant.

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a world renowned SUV in terms of off-roading and performance. However, in India, it hasn;t quite taken off yet due to the company's poor aftersales services and limited dealer outlets. With the introduction of this automatic variant, the Pajero 4x2 AT would lock horns with the likes of Hyundai Santa Fe, Ford Endeavour, Ssangyong Rexton, and Toyota Fortuner. The company is expected to price the 4x2 AT variant below the 4x4 variant which is currently priced at Rs. 23.50 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi).
