Default re: New Mitsubishi Pajero Sport! *UPDATE* Price reduced to 22.56 Lakh!

***UPDATE***
Just spoke to Auto Pacifica, the Mitsubishi Dealer at Bangalore and the sales of the current Pajero SFX have been officially stopped.


The new Pajero Sport will be launched by the end of March 2012 with an ex-showroom price of 27-28lacs INR.

How can Mitsubishi expect to garner decent numbers with this pricing?

HM Mitsubishi have missed a golden opportunity again, Pajero Sport is priced lower then the Fortuner in Thailand. If fortuner can sell 1000+ per month and look at the booking period of the fortuner in India. They should have brought it through the same route that Toyota is following and priced it 1-2 lakhs less then the fortuner, I am sure they would have done close to 1500 per month and this kind of sales figure they have not seen for last 15-20 years.

I just spoke to the two Delhi dealers (Excel Motors and Asian Motors) and they both say that the Pajero SFX will continue in the line up with no price correction, while the Pajero Sport will be an additional model at 27-28 lacs. They both denied that the sales of the SFX are being discontinued.

Exactly, this vehicle had the potential to turn Mitsubishi around but alas, they lost it, again.

What about the gearbox Traveler?
Also, did you get word about the pricing and warranty offered?

The BHP and torqure figures are certainly in the Fortuner league and the ladder chassis means it is a tough vehicle.

It could be the stock that the dealers are have with them. In fact I spoke to the owner of the Bangalore dealership and he told me that that there is no possibility of purchasing the old Pajero, new, anymore. The pricing of 27-28 lacs was told to me as well.

Put head on, it seems very much on par with the Fortuner. Any details of the gearbox? That is the only thing remaining now, apart from the real world performance which only be experienced and understood.

This is really mystifying. I specifically asked the delhi dealers if they were just clearing out old stock or whether the SFX was going to remain on sale for the indefinite future and they told me that it was the latter. On the other hand, you have it directly from the owner's mouth and I don't even know how well informed the persons I spoke to were.

I really want to find out whats the situation. I really want the SFX but am not ready to buy just yet. However i did make the decision that if I find out that it is being discontinued, I will buy. so I really need to know whats going on.

If its really being discontinued, I need to find a red BSIII.

One thing I noticed was that the front suspension is not a torsion bar setup. It uses dampers with coil springs. The rear suspension setup is same a Pajero though.


Some more titbits.

Also has a sun glass holder and bottle holders integrated in the front door trims.

Seats were light tan almost ivory leather.

It also has steering mounted stereo controls and a nice meaty steering wheel.

ABS, EBD is standard and so are twin airbags at front.

All three rows have independent AC vents.

Rear wash and wipe and defogger is present too.

Was the gearbox a manual or an automatic that you saw? If it was a manual, was it a 5 or a 6 speed?

It is a standard 5 speed gearbox, no autobox as of now. The only difference is that the gear lever and the 4x4 lever have changed their places when compared to the Pajero.

The 4x4 has 5 modes.

1. Rear wheel drive - 2H
2. All wheel drive with center differential open. - 4H
3. All wheel drive with locked center differential. - 4HLC
4. Neutral, meant for PTO winch.
5. All wheel drive low ratio with locked center differential. - 4LLC

Basically the exact setup as the current Pajero.
