The Mitsubishi Pajero has always been a great car. However, the past year has seen a number of improvements, enhancing this already well-loved car. These updates have provided the SUV with a five-star safety rating from ANCAP, after the vehicle initially received a four-star rating when it was first released in 2006.
Five-Star Safety to be Proud About
This maximum five-star safety rating puts the vehicle in line with its main competitor, the Land Cruiser 200 from Toyota. Beating the Y61 diesel Patrol, which currently has a three star rating from ANCAP, the Mitsubishi Pajero is leading the pack for safety.
Improved Features from 2006
The higher safety rating for the Mitsubishi Pajero comes after it was fitted with an improved steering column and seat belt reminders for the passenger seat. The 2012 version did not have these features.
Every Pajero is fitted with side, passenger, front and curtain airbags. In addition, the vehicle comes with the RISE (reinforced impact safety evolution) body design system that is standard for the Japanese automaker. It also has a reversing camera and as of July, now has Isofix child restraints.
There have been no changes made to the standard equipment of the Mitsubishi Pajero, delivering the same car consumers love. The range still offers the five seat GLX in a five-speed manual transmission or automatic transmission. The GLX model is powered by a 3.2 litre turbo diesel that is now the standard for the range of vehicles. The vehicle also features rear fog lights, alloy wheels measuring 17 inches, a front skid plate and roof rails.
These days, the interior of a car is all about comfort and convenience. In the cabin, you will find a leather steering wheel and a leather gearshift knob, auto-dimming mirror featuring a reversing camera, climate control, Bluetooth, auxiliary outlets, USB and a stereo with six speakers.
The GLXR variant of the vehicle is similar to the GLX, except that is has two extra seats. These vehicles also have fog lamps in the front, exterior door mirrors that are colour coded and a tail gate spoiler. The VRX offers allow wheels measuring 18 inches, puddle lamps, privacy glass and the cabin has seat trim made of leather and front seats that are heated. The Range Topping Exceed model of the vehicle includes chrome on the door handles and mirrors, wood printing on the panels and steering wheel, and a back seat entertainment system.
