“The current Pajero Sport was launched in 2015 as a Stylish & Comfortable off-road SUV concept. It inherited full-feature all-terrain performance, durability, reliability, safety and performance that define the DNA nurtured through successive generations of Pajero. This delivers an elegant and stylish design, together with comfort and easy-to-live-with utility. The Pajero Sport brings together the Pajero’s tough, full-feature off-road performance with stylishness and outstanding comfort – properties that at first glance appear to be contradictory.

The key phrase driving the latest model year change has been ‘Elevate your Journey’. Pointing to a desire to be more adventurous and seek more challenges, this key phrase encapsulates our wish to help customers enjoy a more inspirational life style.

We gave in-depth thought to how we should best evolve Pajero Sport. We decided that in addition to refreshing the overall design we would give particular attention to up-rating its advanced equipment specification and its convenience/utility performance. We wanted to deliver the kind of useful and comfort functions that would meet the diverse needs of as many customers as possible. To that end, after gathering and collating the opinions of our customers, the wisdom of our partners around the world and the project team’s know-how, we conducted multiple studies into how to best strengthen the product.

To give an example, one of the new items of equipment is the power tailgate. In addition to the usual power operation, we have added a number of functions, including: hands-free operation using a kick-motion sensor; specific operations using a smartphone; and a smartphone-activated preset that opens the tailgate when the owner approaches the vehicle. Note: driver must also carry the key on their person for security purposes.

Other new features that are useful and fun include a new 8-inch color digital instrument display that is both functional and offers a playful touch, and the Mitsubishi Remote Control that gives the driver control of a number of vehicle functions using their smartphone.  We are confident such features will exceed customer expectations and earn their satisfaction.

We believe that planning a new model means creating joy for our customers and putting a smile on their faces. The moment the customer purchases a new car should be one of great excitement and happiness. That is why we continue to build appealing, attractive cars. Also of importance is that the new model should be such that the initial moment of great joy continues always. Which is why we place such importance on building in greater safety, greater utility, greater comfort. These are areas of performance that go without saying but that are still extremely important. We will not compromise on this because we want to protect that moment of joy the customer feels on purchasing their car. Pajero Sport is a great model; one into which we have injected our beliefs and wishes.”

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Overview

Mitsubishi Motors SUV history started with the Pajero in 1982, since then the company has launched a wide range of SUV models to reflect the needs of our customers. The Pajero Sport was launched in July 1996, as a mid-size cross-country SUV, (Challenger). For the second-generation model launched in 2008 and for subsequent models, production shifted from the Pajero manufacturing Plant in Japan to the company’s Laem Chabang Plant in Thailand. The third-generation model was launched in August 2015. Cumulative production volume at the end of June 2019 had reached approx. 260k units, and Pajero Sport is now fondly owned by customers in all our global markets.

New Pajero Sport continues its inheritance of Pajero DNA. It comes with the Pajero’s full-feature all-terrain performance, comfort and reliability, together with refinements to the innovatively sporty exterior design and comfortable interior developed through successive generations of Pajero Sport to deliver a more luxurious feel. New Pajero Sport also offers improved convenience and utility with a number of innovative new components.

Owen Thomson, Senior Manager, Product Strategy at Mitsubishi Motors Australia said:
“This new Pajero Sport doesn’t only bring a facelift, it offers improvements to practical use. There are a number of small, subtle changes in this new model that add up to deliver a better ownership experience.

“The Pajero Sport is incredibly capable off-road, however off-road capability shouldn’t come at the expense of comfort and convenience. It is the combination of ‘go anywhere capability’ with ‘style and comfort’ that gives the Pajero Sport its unique positioning.

“It appeals to families and other buyer groups because it can meet the daily urban commute, as much as the serious adventure that comes with travelling, towing or off-road 4-wheel driving.

“The new model adds some important functionality that I think will please Australian drivers – the digital dash, the power tailgate – and more practical and thoughtful spec changes such as small-item storage and turning lamps that will improve the overall driving experience.”

  • Exterior design accents wide, sculptured and powerful looks
    New Pajero Sport sees a further evolution in the latest iteration of Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield front design concept, with the effect of making the front-end look wider. The bonnet is set higher, giving the front face a deeper look. The bold look and functional placement of the lamp units, and more sculptured and powerful treatment of chromed parts all contribute to a more refined front design.
  • New innovative and helpful components 
    New Pajero Sport is fitted with an easy-to-read 8 inch color digital instrument panel to give drivers more information about their drive – and put them more in control. The smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) system includes TomTom navigation (Exceed model) and displays Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The newly developed remote control app links the vehicle to the driver’s smartphone, offering a number of convenient features, including operations of the power tailgate and a turnoff/close reminder.
  • More luxurious, quality interior
    The floor console and door grip shapes have been revised and extra soft pads are added to make it a more comfortable and to raise the quality look. Not forgetting other occupants, a lower tray, which is accessible by the front passenger, is added to the tunnel-style floor console, while an AC power outlet is added to the trailing edge of the floor console.
  • Improved vehicle performance
    The Pajero Sport is powered by a 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.  All models are fitted with the Super Select 4WD-II drivetrain that delivers optimal traction for different surface conditions together with confidence-inspiring handling characteristics. The current model’s outstanding safety performance is improved further with the addition of Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) to its advanced safety system specification.

A refreshed front view

New Pajero Sport sees a further evolution in MMC’s Dynamic Shield front design concept. The sculptured, powerful styling of the front grille and the projector headlamps positioned outboard of the daytime running lights in a continuation of the grille work together to impart a wider, more stable look. The combination lamp units positioned toward the outside of the upper bumper are both functional and give further accent to the sense of width.

More dynamic, upmarket  front face

Using a higher bonnet leading edge than on the outgoing model gives the face a deeper look, and with a more solid and powerful chrome component design creates a front face that projects a sense of impressive power and dynamic performance.

Switch to LED in functional lamp design

With the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) housed in the headlamp units and with its position lamps, the new model retains the characteristic Pajero Sport on-road presence. The combination units, housing active cornering lamp, turn signal and styled fog lamp, are positioned functionally for optimal vision and to protect them from damage. The new style fog lamp is positioned with consideration given to water damage when driving on flooded roads. The active cornering lamp improves driver visibility when turning at junctions and when reversing at night. The headlamps, DRLs, cornering and fog lamps use LED bulbs for lower power consumption and longer life.

Side & rear view / Rear lamp design

In the side view, the focus of the character line linking the bonnet and rear is lifted to present a more imposing and powerful look. The side step is mounted higher for better ground clearance, offering drivers better off-road performance. In the rear view, a deeper bumper and a horizontal line across the bumper face add more stability to the rear end.

Rear combination lamp design

While retaining the characteristic Pajero Sport vertical lighting, the new model uses uniform illumination surface-emitting LED rear tail lamps. Visibility has been improved by moving the LED stop lamp away from the tail lamp. The new model employs a LED reversing lamp for lower power consumption and longer life. Brighter than a filament lamp, this improves visibility when reversing.

Alloy road wheels

Pajero Sport uses 18-inch alloy wheels, with a six twin-spoke design. The depth of metal close to the rim and sharp styling of these wheels accents the new model’s SUV toughness and sportiness. Two-tone diamond-cut wheels give a more “muscular” look to the lower body.

Interior Design

Increased driver comfort

While retaining the high-quality design based around the metallic frame that ties the wide, tall centre console to the dashboard, the Pajero Sport sees improvements in interior comfort and utility. It is equipped with a highly legible 8-inch colour LCD meter and Mitsubishi’s Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA). Improvements to the floor console and door trim with soft pads, and the addition of dashboard and floor console lower trays adds additional utility to the interior design.

8-inch colour LCD (Exceed only)

A new 8-inch colour LCD meter houses the speedometer, tachometer and other vehicle information displays. The status of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) is displayed in an easy-to-read format in the cluster for any chosen mode.

8-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA)

The SDA uses an 8-inch touchscreen monitor to offer entertainment, navigation and heads-free functions in a safe and user-friendly driving environment. Navigation and entertainment information is also shown in a linked display on the 8-inch colour LCD meter.

Redesigned centre console

The centre console design has been evolved to a more modern shape. Lower trays have been added to the dashboard forward of the shift lever and under the tunnel-type floor console, allowing access from both sides, giving improved utility and convenience.

Comfort specification enhances convenience & safety

The Pajero Sport employs several new components that enhance convenience in everyday driving. It is also fitted with a variety of comfort features that mitigate driving stress and enhance safety.

AC Power Outlet (150W max)

The floor console AC Power Outlet on the outgoing model has been moved to the rear end of the floor console to enhance user-convenience.

Electric Parking Brake

The parking brake can be engaged or released using a switch on the centre console. While engaged, the vehicle will remain stationary, even if the driver takes their foot off the brake pedal. For peace of mind, the parking brake can only be released if the driver has their foot on the brake pedal or the gear lever is in Park (P).

Auto Parking Brake 

To activate the Auto Parking Brake the driver should pull up the parking brake switch and hold for approximately 4 seconds, when the vehicle is stationary and conditions permit. Once activated the vehicle will automatically engage the parking brake when the gear lever is moved to Park (P). When the gear lever is shifted out of Park, the parking brake is automatically released. To de-activate the Auto Parking Brake, the driver simply pushes the parking brake down for 4 seconds.

Auto Hold Function

The Auto Hold system can be activated – by pressing the switch behind the park brake – when the vehicle is stationary and conditions permit. If the gear lever is moved into P, this will cause the electronic parking brake to automatically engage. When the gear lever shifts into Drive (D) or Reverse (R) the park brake will automatically be released once the driver presses the accelerator pedal.

Adaptive Cruise Control 

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) (not available on GLX) uses radar to accelerate, slow down or stop as it tracks the vehicle ahead. The system assists drivers to maintain a designated vehicle speed, as it maintains one of three designated vehicle separation distances.

New functions for Multi Around Monitor

Pajero Sport (Exceed) retains its multi around monitor uses four cameras located at the front and rear and in the door mirrors to monitor the area around the vehicle and generate on the display a bird’s eye view image of any obstacles. It superimposes a grid overlay on the rearview image to assist the driver when parking their Pajero Sport. Obstacle Alert is a new feature that uses a flashing icon on the display to informs the driver of the distance to obstacles when the ultrasonic sensors have detected obstacles in the vehicle’s path.

Power Tailgate

New Pajero Sport is fitted for the first time with a handy-to-use Power Tailgate (not currently on GLX). A hands-free access uses an kick-motion sensor under the rear bumper to give hands-free automatic operation of the tailgate by kick motion. A tailgate switch-activated Intermediate Stop feature allows the driver to stop the tailgate at a desired position as it is automatically opening or closing. The desired stopping point can be registered in the system as the default open/close position. A close and lock function allows the driver to close the tailgate and lock the doors by pressing the Lock switch. Models fitted with Mitsubishi Remote Control offer a Smartphone Link which allows the driver to use their smartphone to operate other useful features, such as Timed Open/Close.

Mitsubishi Remote Control app

Useful links between vehicle and smartphone (Exceed only)

Installing the Mitsubishi Motors custom app on a smartphone and pairing it with a vehicle allows the driver to access the Mitsubishi Remote Control system. This system has a number of functions including the ability, to open/close the Power Tailgate without having to manually use the tailgate release handle or the keyless operation key fob, if the driver has preset a Timed Open/Close using a smartphone.

Tailgate operation

If Timed Open/Close has been preset by smartphone, the Power Tailgate can be opened/closed simply by approaching the car or by touching it lightly and without having the use the tailgate handle or keyless operation key fob.

  • If set beforehand, the tailgate will open automatically when the driver approaches the vehicle.
  • If set beforehand, the tailgate will close automatically when the driver moves away from the vehicle.

The Power Tailgate can also be opened/closed directly from the application. The system is programed to open/close the tailgate only while the smartphone button is pressed, allowing it to be stopped at the desired position while visually checking the vicinity of the vehicle.

2020 Pajero Sport Improved performance

With more clearly visible hood lines and a class-topping turning circle, New Pajero Sport offers outstanding drivability for a mid-size all-terrain SUV. It retains its 5* ANCAP rating, as well as Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction and provides high levels of crash safety.

2020 Pajero Sport Excellent manoeuverability & drivability

New Pajero Sport retains its 11.2m turning circle, the benchmark of manoeuvrability. Minimum ground clearance is kept at 218mm for better all-terrain performance (measured from the lowest point on the vehicle). It retains optimal obstruction angles with an approach angle of 30°, departure angle of 24.2° and ramp breakover angle of 23.1°.

2020 Pajero Sport Body

The Pajero Sport retains the RISE safety body that marries a high-efficiency energy absorbing chassis frame, reinforcement with large section frame members, to an energy absorbing front section and a deformation-resistant occupant cell. This structure provides outstanding crash safety performance. The high-tensile strength panels are used in wide area to combine lighter weight with greater rigidity.

2020 Pajero Sport Fuel consumption

The 2.4L turbodiesel MIVEC* unit that powers the Pajero Sport is quiet and powerful. The 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift Sport Mode manual override delivers smooth acceleration and contributes to lower fuel consumption**.
*Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control
** Fuel consumption is NEDC, for comparison purposes

2020 Pajero Sport 4N15-type 2.4L 4-cylinder MIVEC turbodiesel

The Pajero Sport benefits from the 4N15-type 2.4L 4-cylinder MIVEC turbodiesel unit, which has undergone combustion chamber and fuel injection spray optimisation. This allows a lower 15.5 compression ratio. The use of an aluminium alloy cylinder block results in a significant reduction in engine weight. Employing a Deceleration Energy Recovery (DER) system and mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission (A/T).

The engine also uses MIVEC variable valve timing, with low- and high-speed valve lift and timing control on the intake cam, and a variable-geometry (VG) turbocharger which varies the effective aspect ratio of the turbine for different conditions. With maximum boost now increased to 200MPa, the engine delivers a maximum of 133kW/3500rpm and 430N-m/2500rpm. The result is gutsy torque at lower engine speeds together with smooth and responsive acceleration at higher speeds.

2020 Pajero Sport Automatic transmission

The Pajero Sport retains the 8-speed A/T from the existing model. As well as extracting engine performance more effectively and delivering smooth acceleration, it also contributes to improved fuel mileage. The A/T also employs Idle Neutral Control which reduces internal energy losses caused by torque converter drag when the vehicle is stationary in D range and this helps reduce fuel consumption further.

The 8-speed A/T is available with Sport Mode manual override to enhance driving pleasure by allowing the driver to use the shift lever or paddle shifters to change gear as and when they wishes. This allows the driver to rapidly shift gear when sport driving along winding roads, to engage engine braking on a descent, or to accelerate faster when overtaking or when climbing an upgrade.

2020 Pajero Sport Paddle shifters

Paddle shifters allow the driver to rapidly shift through the gears manually with both hands on the steering wheel.

2020 Pajero Sport Tough, high-performance 4×4 

Mitsubishi’s proprietary Super Select 4WD-II drivetrain delivers optimal traction for all surface conditions and confidence-inspiring handling characteristics.

2020 Pajero Sport Super-Select 4WD-II 

Super-Select 4WD-II  employs an electronic actuator to facilitate switching between drive modes, and a rear-bias centre differential that feeds F/R drive torque in a 40:60 split. This 4WD system delivers optimal traction for all surface conditions with feel-good handling characteristics.

Super-Select 4WD-II offers four drive modes:

  • 2H (rear wheel drive) reduces unnecessary friction in the drivetrain for low consumption driving on dry tarmac;
  • 4H caters to a wide range of conditions, from tarmac to unmade surfaces, roads wet with rain and snow-covered roads. It allows drivers to choose to drive in a full-time 4WD mode.
  • 4HLc locks the centre differential to deliver direct drive to all four wheels and dependable traction in deep snow, sand and other low-friction surfaces;
  • 4LLc uses a locked center differential and low gear for driving over rocky ground, muddy roads and other surfaces where maximum drive torque is required. In 4LLc mode, the A/T uses deeper gear ratios for even better all-terrain performance.

2020 Pajero Sport Active Stability and Traction Control

The Pajero Sport uses Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC) which, on detection of vehicle instability or wheel slip on slippery surfaces caused by sudden steering wheel inputs, manages the forces on all wheels by precisely controlling the engine torque and braking force going to each wheel, thereby stabilising vehicle behaviour. By preventing slip in the driven wheels, this also assures optimal traction.

2020 Pajero Sport OFF ROAD MODES

4WD models retain their off-road mode selector (introduced in MY19) that offers the choice of custom GRAVEL, MUD/SNOW, SAND and ROCK (only in 4LLc) drive modes. Using integrated control of engine torque, transmission and braking, the system regulates the amount of wheel slip to maximise all-terrain performance as well as self-extraction capability from mud or snow.

2020 Pajero Sport GRAVEL

This mode combines optimal acceleration and stability over unsurfaced roads where small stones or dirt can cause wheel slip.

2020 Pajero Sport MUD / SNOW

This mode regulates wheel slip to avoid getting stuck and to maintain directional stability when moving off. Once the vehicle is moving steadily, the system allows some slip and reduces the degree of traction control to reduce any sense of stalling. In mud or snow, if the system detects that the vehicle is getting stuck, it weakens engine torque control to improve self-extraction capability.

2020 Pajero Sport SAND

In this mode, the system reduces wheel slip to avoid getting stuck when moving off and, by initiating a limited slip differential effect, to improve self-extraction capability. Once the vehicle is moving steadily, the system allows some slip and reduces the degree of TCL*1/ASC*2 system control to reduce any feeling that the car is stalling. The A/T switches to shift timing best-suited to SAND mode and selects the appropriate gear to maintain high drive torque feed.
*1  Traction Control  *2  Active Stability Control

2020 Pajero Sport ROCK

When the system detects that diagonally opposing wheels do not have sufficient contact with the ground, or to improve traction and stability when going uphill, the system reduces any loss of drive by suppressing wheel slip and acting as a limited slip differential. The A/T switches to shift timing best-suited to ROCK mode and selects the appropriate gear to maintain high drive torque.

2020 Pajero Sport Suspension and brakes support safe and comfortable motoring

The suspension on the Pajero Sport continues to combine all-terrain performance off road with outstanding handling and comfort on tarmac.

2020 Pajero Sport Suspension

The new model retains the double wishbone front and 3-link rear suspension arrangements on the current model. These provide reassuring low-roll cornering together with the necessary stroke travel for off-road driving to deliver a compliant and comfortable ride.

2020 Pajero Sport Brakes

New Pajero Sport uses disc brakes all round. Large ventilated discs with twin-pot callipers at the front and ventilated discs at the rear deliver the right combination of stopping force and feel. The new model retains anti-lock braking with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), which distributes F/R braking force appropriately according to passenger numbers and luggage load. It also has the Emergency Stop Signal system (ESS) that automatically activates the hazard lamps to warn following vehicles when emergency braking or ABS is activated.

2020 Pajero Sport Hill Start Assist

When the system detects a hill slope, HSA keeps the brakes applied for up to two seconds and prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when the driver moves their foot from the brake to accelerator pedal.

2020 Pajero Sport Hill Descent Control

4WD models retain Hill Descent Control which maintains a constant vehicle speed when descending a gradient and where engine braking alone is not enough (the system operates at speeds up to 20 km/h; the driver can adjust the amount of control using their brake pedal and accelerate pedal). The system allows the driver to concentrate more on steering the vehicle.

2020 Pajero Sport Advanced safety systems

The Pajero Sport uses a number of advanced active safety systems that give the driver all-directional assistance in the safe operation of their vehicle.

Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) is standard across the range. It uses a radar unit installed behind the front grille logo to detect vehicles ahead. If it determines there is the danger of a collision, it warns the driver and automatically applies the brakes to reduce collision damage or, depending on the situation, to avoid a collision.

For New Pajero Sport, Blind Spot Warning (BSW) replaces the ultrasonic sensor with a radar sensor installed inside the rear bumper to detect vehicles in the driver’s rear quarter which tends to be a blind spot, and warns the driver of vehicle approach by flashing an indicator in the driver’s door mirror. The radar sensor is less affected by external disturbances and has a more extensive range than the ultrasonic sensor. Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) functions are also added to the system.

Also joining the active safety systems lineup on the Exceed is the Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS). This warns the driver and reduces engine output if they have mistakenly pressed the accelerator too hard when stationary or at speeds of under 10km/h and the ultrasonic sensor has detected an obstacle in the path of the vehicle.

2020 Pajero Sport Blind Spot Warning

When the system detects a vehicle coming up on the rear quarter it alerts the driver to its presence by turning the indicator in their door mirror on. If the driver indicates to move in that direction without using the blinker, the system makes them more aware of the danger by flashing the door mirror indicator and sounding an audible alert. The change from an ultrasonic sensor to a radar unit gives extended detection range and performance. It is also less subject to external disturbances. The system replaces the 2-front/2-rear sensor outside of the bumper configuration on the current model with 2 radars on the inside of the rear bumper.

2020 Pajero Sport Lane Change Assist 

Lane Change Assist (LCA) uses a radar unit fitted to the body inside the rear bumper. If it detects a faster travelling vehicle in the adjacent lane when the driver indicates to move into that lane, the system makes them aware of the danger by flashing the door mirror indicator and sounding an audible alert. This helps stop the driver from failing to notice other vehicles when changing lanes.

2020 Pajero Sport Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses the same door mirror indicator and audible alert as LCA to warn the driver of vehicles crossing behind when reversing out of their garage. BSW, LCA and RCTA all use the same  radar sensor unit.

2020 Pajero Sport Ultrasonic misacceleration Mitigation System

Within 4m, system activation notifies driver by warning light in instrument cluster and audible alert.

2020 Pajero Sport Airbags

All New Pajero Sport models are fitted as standard with SRS airbags for driver and front passenger. These mitigate impact forces on front occupants in the event of a forward collision. SRS knee airbags are also standard across the range, enhancing occupant restraint by embracing the driver’s knee, SRS side airbags that mitigate impact forces to the upper torso and a SRS curtain airbag that mitigates impact forces to the head region for front and rear occupants in the event of a side collision. These 7 airbags increase safety in the event of a collision.

2020 Pajero Sport colours added to the range

In keeping with customer feedback, two new exterior colors have been added to the body color palette, giving a choice of five colors in all.

  • White
  • White diamond (new)
  • Graphite grey (new, metallic)
  • Sterling silver (metallic)
  • Terra Rossa
  • Black mica
  • Dark blue
