Mitsubishi’s Pajero Sport Automatic or Pajero Sport (AT) comes with an array of fascinating features. In this article, we will be discussing about the most prominent ones among them and will also tell you how those features compare against the features of rival vehicle models on paper.
Mitsubishi has launched this new vehicle to offer stiff competition to rival automakers such as Hyundai, Toyota and Ford. The vehicle will fiercely compete with the automatic, two-wheel models of the Hyundai Santa Fe, the Ford Endeavor and last but definitely not least the Toyota Fortuner.
Let us begin the discussion with the power offerings of all these cars. The automatic version of the Pajero Sport come equipped with a 2.5-liter diesel engine. It possesses the ability to offer 176 bhp. The torque produced by it is also highly impressive at 35.69 kgm. The Hyundai vehicle Santa Fe, which is believed to be one of the closest rivals of the Mitsubishi creation, boasts a 2.2-liter diesel engine.
It’s true that both the Ford Endeavor and the Toyota Fortuner come powered by larger 3.0-liter engines, but their mills are capable of producing power of just 154 bhp and 169 bhp respectively. This makes the engine of the newly launched automatic vehicle from Mitsubishi more powerful than the ones produced by these two rival groups.
The torques produced by the engines of the Ford vehicle and the Toyota creation is definitely slightly more than the torque produced by the Pajero Sport Automatic. However, that shouldn’t tag those cars as winners and the primary feature one looks for when checking engine specifications is the amount of power is can generate.
The new Mitsubishi creation also competes well with all its rivals when it comes to its transmission. Like the Ford and Toyota cars, it also carries 5-speed automatic transmission, which is pretty impressive.
Some other prominent features of the Mitsubishi vehicle are found in its interior. The car has been made even more special with a completely revamped interior. The automaker has added components such as a reverse parking feature, navigation system, DVD player, a cooler box and a range of other such amenities inside the vehicle.
While the above mentioned features are some new additions to the care, there are many features that Mitsubishi has decided to keep intact. The above mentioned engine specification is surely one of them. The fuel efficiency of this vehicle is also the same as its manual counterpart. Both these vehicles are capable of providing users with a fuel efficiency of 12.1 km/liter.
