Following a safety specification update in September, Mitsubishi Motors has now added a new halo model to the Pajero Sport range.
The new limited edition model is called the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Shogun, and it is based on the Pajero Sport 4x4 AT, a vehicle which has been selected as a finalist for the 2019 South African Car of the Year competition.
Unique to the new Pajero Sport Shogun Limited Edition is an upgraded factory-fitted infotainment system, with Apple Carplay and Android Auto capability, and includes a 7-inch LCD touch screen with touch-key buttons, Bluetooth, GPS and a USB connector with Bluetooth connectivity, while also allowing music streaming via the system.
Apart from the Apple CarPlay/Android Auto Infotainment System, the Pajero Sport Shogun is available in silver, titanium grey and pearl white; and is fitted with attractive and practical Thule roof racks, a headlamp protector set, a bonnet guard, a black nudge bar, black door handles, a boot cover, side window visor/deflector set, tow bar, Shogun decals in black and silver and a Shogun carpet set branded in grey.
Powered by a super-responsive 2.4L MIVEC turbo diesel engine producing 133kw at 3,500rpm and 430nm of torque at 2,500rpm, driving all four wheels through its state-of-the-art 8-speed automatic transmission with Intelligent Shift Control, the Shogun is able to tow a trailer or off-road caravan up to 2 790kg. The off-roader is also fitted with the latest version of Mitsubishi Motors’ unique Super Select II 4WD system offering four different drive modes with a class-leading Hill-Descent Control system for additional safety when on dangerous ground.
Much like the regular Pajero Sport, the Shogun is as safe as houses, boasting 7 airbags, ISOFIX Child Seat Anchors, Rain-sensing Windscreen Wipers, Rear Park Distance Control, Rear-view Camera, Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist System (BAS), Hill Start Assist System (HAS) and Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
"The new Pajero Sport Shogun is stylish and luxurious with a bolder, more aggressive look," says Nic Campbell, General Manager at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa. "The Shogun is an ultimate family SUV limited edition that not only competes with similar SUV limited editions in the market, but suits the active lifestyle that is so popular in the marketplace. With the upcoming holidays - for many people their annual break - the Pajero Sport Shogun offers the right equipment at the right price for any adventure."
The 7-seater Pajero Sport Shogun is priced at R639 995 including all the additional equipment, worth R60 000, at no extra cost to the customer. It is covered by Mitsubishi Motor's 3-year / 100 000 km manufacturer's warranty and a 5-year / 90 000 km service plan with 10 000 km service intervals.
