Siberian test: updated Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

The units have remained the same – and that’s not bad. The Super Select transmission with Torsen differential has always been an important advantage for Pajero Sport – the closest competitor, Toyota Fortuner, can only offer plug-in all-wheel drive. Available for the Pajero Sport are both a 3.0-liter petrol V6 and a 2.4-liter turbodiesel. The latter, by the way, looks more appropriate on this car – the gasoline engine makes the Pajero Sport too sharp.

With a diesel engine, the SUV gradually picks up speed, and it does not make too much noise, the 8-speed hydromechanical automatic quickly selects the desired gear. Up to “hundreds” diesel Pajero Sport can accelerate in 12.3 seconds – and such dynamic capabilities are optimal for this car.
