The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GL is a new variant of the award winning Pajero Sport SUV, now known as the Pajero Sport GS, which was introduced in June last year to great response. The Pajero Sport GL is powered by a modern 2.5-litre common rail diesel engine with turbocharger and intercooler.

Priced competitively at RM 145,467.80 (on the road without insurance), the new Pajero Sport GL is set to attract urban motorists who want a stylish SUV with space and versatility, but do not really need the full off-road capability of the 4WD variant. Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia expects to sell 800 units of the new Pajero Sport GL by end of this year.

The Pajero Sport GL, which comes with a new sporty honeycomb grille and a choice of four colours (Eisen Gray Mica, Dark Blue Mica, Platinum Beige Metallic and White Pearl), boasts premium equipment such as leather seats and a 2-DIN touch screen entertainment system with USB connectivity, iPod and Bluetooth ready as well as a built in reverse camera for easier and safer parking.

New and current owners of Pajero Sport will be delighted to discover that genuine Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia accessories are now made available for their vehicle. List of accessories available include front and rear airdams, rear spoiler, cargo trays, scuff plate, mirror cover with LED indicator and rear garnish. All accessories will be available for purchase at selected authorized Mitsubishi Motors showroom nationwide.

“The new Pajero Sport GL is a lifestyle 7-seater SUV perfect for those looking for a comfortable, urban drive. It comes with the strengths of the Pajero Sport, such as its spacious and versatile three-row cabin; a diesel powertrain that’s powerful yet economical; all in an attractive price tag. We believe that all these unique features will make the Pajero Sport GL a leading contender in the SUV segment.

“The Pajero Sport has been a real success for Mitsubishi Motors since its global debut back in the last quarter of 2008. We launched it here in Malaysia last June and to date, it has found close to 700 proud owners. We expect this GL variant to further widen the appeal of the Pajero Sport and attract a growing segment of urban buyers,” said Mr Keizo Ono, Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.

Take this opportunity to view the new Pajero Sport GL exclusively at Oval, Lower Ground, 1 Utama New Wing from 15th to the 18th of April 2010.

It will be available in authorized Mitsubishi Motors showrooms nationwide from 20th April 2010 onwards. Backing up its commitment of quality and reliability, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia offers a 2-year free maintenance or 40 000 km program with the new Pajero Sport GL.

With this special program, owners will get to enjoy hassle-free drives and peak vehicle performance, with free operation labor costs. Among the free maintenance parts that come with this offer includes Engine Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Differential Oil and Transmission Oil.

This program is also applicable for Pajero Sport GS SUV, Lancer GT sedan, Grandis MPV and Triton 3.2 registered from 1 April 2010 onwards (Applicable to 2010 models only. Terms and conditions apply).

Producing 136 PS of maximum output and 314 Nm of torque from a low 2,000 rpm, the Pajero Sport’s proven and reliable DOHC 16-valve power plant provides strong performance coupled with good fuel consumption. The common rail direct injection system delivers a precise, steady fuel supply to each cylinder for maximum output without fuel wastage for better efficiency and emissions.

The capable engine is paired with Mitsubishi’s INVECS-II 4-speed automatic transmission. INVECS-II shift control analyzes the driving pattern and conditions and adapts to it by creating a profile that matches the driver’s characteristics.

There is also a Sport Mode that offers the driver the control of a manual transmission when more immediate response and involvement is needed.

A rigid ladder frame is supported with double-wishbone suspension up front and three-link suspension with coil springs at the rear plus stabilizer bars on both ends, a combination that provides both robustness and a high-level of comfort.

A power assisted rack-and-pinion steering provides better feel, precision and a minimum turning radius of only 5.6 metres in it’s segment.

The Pajero Sport GL frame uses beams made from thinner and lighter steel for strength without the corresponding weight. Built within the frame are impact-absorbing collapsible beads that absorb energy in a collision, helping to cushion the cabin from the strongest impacts.

These work in conjunction with the Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body, collapsible steering column, anti-intrusion brake pedal, side door impact bars and ELR seatbelts with pretensioners and force limiters for top level passive safety.

The Pajero Sport GL is also equipped with dual SRS airbags, ABS and EBD.

The riding comfort of the seven-seat cabin is one of its biggest strengths, being both versatile and spacious. The third row seats can be folded flat to carry cargo instead of passengers, and should you need even more cargo space, the middle row seats can be split folded 60:40 for a combination of long cargo and passengers.

The front two seats can be folded flat along with the second row for a comfortable sleeping position when one needs a break. There are plenty of storage spaces around the cabin and third row passengers get to enjoy air vents of their own with a separate fan control switch.

The new Pajero Sport GL will join the current line-up consisting of the Lancer sedan, Grandis MPV, Triton pick-up truck and Pajero Sport GS 4×4 SUV.
