Test drive Mitsubishi Pajero Sport
I confess, for me, Mitsubishi has always been a secret world. Somehow it happened, but for almost 15 years the driving experience almost never drove a car of this brand.
And recently, I had the opportunity to test the frame SUV Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, which is going in Russia (Kaluga). It is still based on the L200 platform, which, admittedly, is one of the best in its class. I tried the car on different surfaces, the steering wheel is clear, you feel confident in front of the pits and potholes.
Under the hood is a powerful, high-torque and economical diesel engine with a volume of 2.4 liters (181 hp. At 430 Nm of torque), working with a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-range automatic transmission. As we know, diesel engines are loved by us, so it is not surprising that in Russia they began to assemble diesel versions of the Sport. According to statistics, approximately 85−90% of all sports buyers order it with a diesel engine!
As I understand it, the petrol variants are still being supplied from Thailand, and we are not planning to release them yet. A 3-liter V6 (209 hp with 279 Nm of torque) is available to order. Consumption in the diesel version I had in the region of 10 liters per hundred.
Transmission Super Select II - the main and most popular feature of Mitsubishi SUVs. Four driving modes are available: 2H, 4H, 4HLc and 4HLLc. I will not ship the technical terms, I think everyone in the infographic shows how the pride and the main advantage of Mitsubishi SUVs. I note only that the offroad available wheel drive mode with reduced transmission and interaxle differential locked.
So frame, diesel, what else is needed for happiness? Probably a clear appearance. For me, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport looks stylish and modern, all kind showing inherent in him the strength and reliability under all operating conditions. By the way, it is very rare to find this car in city traffic.
Apparently, Mitsubishi must not doubts about the reliability Pajero Sport, therefore in Russia it operates a factory warranty of 5 years or 150 000 km! The cost of the car starts from 2 249 000 rubles.
Spacious lounge with excellent visibility. In front, as well as behind, it is a lot of place - very large passengers can quietly accommodate.
A rich set of options to prevent the UMS system collisions, monitoring blind spots when changing lanes, the external view camera, keyless access with a start button,heating and other benefits of automotive civilization.
Large 6.1-inch touch screen, with a convenient and functional multimedia system.
The trunk of the new Pajero Sport - more than 700 liters. Even the hippopotamus gets even-) And if you fold the back row, the luggage volume will increase 2.5 times!
In general, Pajero Sport is not for those who are just driving home-work-home. It is created for adventure, for travel, it steadily keeps both in the city and on a country road.
