Video - All-new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport revealed

Snapshot: We’ve seen it in plenty of teasers and now it’s finally here, the all-new Pajero Sport.

It’s being billed as a brand new model which makes sense as it is based on the new L200 / Triton pickup truck and that one was indeed developed from the ground up. Mitsubishi's latest mid-size SUV comes with a more upscale design that has lost some of its ruggedness in favor of a more chiseled look with the corporate “Dynamic Shield” front that uses a generous amount of chrome.

Those slender headlights look quite smart and feature built-in LED daytime running lights while the circular fog lights sit low on the bumper. The profile of the car shows some prominent side steps which should make it easier to get inside and out of the car while perhaps the most controversial part of the design is at the back with those unique taillights. These vertically-positioned and thin clusters take their inspiration from the 2013 GR-HEV concept and will certainly make the new Pajero Sport stand out.

Unsurprisingly, the interior cabin has been mostly sourced from the L200 / Triton and for the first time in a Mitsubishi, the model comes with an electric parking brake which frees up some of the space on the central tunnel that adopts a glossy black look. We notice the leather seats and an infotainment system packing a generously-sized display incorporating a rearview camera while the second and third rows of seats can be folded to create a massive loading area.

Full technical specifications are not available at this point, but we do know the 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport will utilize the familiar MIVEC 2.4-liter turbodiesel engine from the pickup truck it’s based on and depending on where it will be sold there are going to be two different states of tune: 154 bhp and 380 Nm along with a beefier version developing 181 bhp and 430 Nm. Interestingly, the mid-size SUV will employ a newly developed 8-speed automatic transmission that was created specifically for this model.

It will initially go on sale this fall in Thailand and the availability will be expanded to more than 80 countries across the world.
