New Mitsubishi Pajero Sport VGT Launched...

Command, Control and Conquer with the New Variable Geometry Turbo Engine

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia, the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, introduced the new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport VGT today. In its effort to further strengthen its SUV line up, the Pajero Sport VGT is a new variant of the award winning seven-seat SUV that was first introduced in Malaysia in 2009.

Pajero Sport VGT

Mitsubishi’s proven robust and economical 2.5-litre Common Rail diesel engine is now fitted with a new powerhouse management that includes Variable Geometry Turbo, boosting power and torque levels to 178 PS and 350 Nm, respectively.

The Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) technology uses variable vanes to control exhaust flow against the turbine blades, ensuring a constant delivery of additional fresh air to the engine for optimum output and performance.

The maximum torque of the Pajero Sport VGT is made available across a wide band from 1,800 to 3,500 rpm, ensuring stronger acceleration and flexibility. The engine management efficiency is also increased for better power and fuel efficiency.

The new powerful VGT engine also has a new gearbox to partner with. The Pajero Sport VGT features a new 5-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode, one forward ratio more than the transmission in the Pajero Sport GS. This upgrade provides better fuel economy as well as better driving enjoyment, the latter assisted by steering wheel magnesium paddle shifters.

The new Pajero Sport VGT will be sold alongside the Pajero Sport GS 4WD and Pajero Sport GL 2WD, offering a wider option for customers.

Available in 4 colours, Black Mica, Cool Silver, White Pearl and Quartz Brown Metallic the fully imported Pajero Sport VGT is priced at RM171, 980 on the road inclusive of insurance. Buyers will enjoy a 3-Years warranty and 2-Years free maintenance package for hassle free ownership experience.

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia expects to sell more than 200 units of Pajero Sport per month which is an increase volume of 50% compared to Fiscal Year 2010 (April-March).

“The Pajero Sport has been a great success since its debut in Malaysia. And to date, it has found more than 3,000 proud owners. Offering a new more powerful engine, advanced technology and a classier outlook of the Mitsubishi’s 4WD flagship model, this new Pajero Sport VGT variant is set to further widen the appeal of the Pajero Sport,” said Tetsuya Oda, Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.

“The riding comfort of the seven-seat cabin is one of its biggest strengths, being both versatile and spacious. With an impressive set of new features, Pajero Sport VGT is one of the best in its class – just the right size for a growing family while delivering reliability, quality performance and safety at the same time,” added Mr. Oda.

Mitsubishi Motors is the most successful manufacturer in Dakar Rally history, and this heritage of performance and robustness is built into the Pajero Sport.

The vehicle has won praises from customers and the media for being a spacious and a comfortable family vehicle. The quality of the vehicle is enhanced in the Pajero Sport VGT, which adds on newly designed plush leather seats for all three rows, as well as a 2-DIN full colour touch screen entertainment system with GPS navigation to the standard equipment list.

The Pajero Sport VGT also comes equipped with Mitsubishi Motors’ Super Select 4WD system that enables it to traverse the toughest terrain. This innovative system gives drivers a choice of driving modes (2H, 4H, 4HLc, 4LLc) for various conditions, be it maximizing fuel economy on tarmac, or for maximum traction on challenging surfaces.

Other safety features includes dual airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distributor (EBD), Hybrid Limited Slip Differential (LSD) and safety brake pedal to name a few. Standard equipment lists also includes cruise control, auto climate control, and reverse camera.

The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport VGT will be displayed for public viewing at Mid Valley Megamall from 22-25 September.

Mitsubishi Motors has a long history in motor sports, including a record-breaking 7th consecutive victory at the Dakar Rally in 2007. Mitsubishi Motors has achieved an unequalled 12 overall victories in 25 years, a track record that is reflected in the performance and quality of the Mitsubishi Motors vehicles.
