Mitsubishi has given its family-hauler a mild makeover.
The Japanese brand has upped the safety credentials of the Pajero Sport by adding autonomous emergency braking as standard across the range along with adaptive cruise control.
Mitsubishi is also adding a five-seat GLS variant to the range, which joins the entry-level GLX as the other smaller format option along with the existing seven-seat GLS and Exceed variants.
The new GLS five-seater is priced from $48,500 (17.4m) before on-road costs. All other models have seen a slight price increase with the entry-level GLX now costing $500 more at $45,500 (16.3m), the seven-seat GLS is $1000 more expensive at $49,500 (17.8m) and the Exceed is hit with a $650 price rise bringing it up to $53,650 (19.3m).
All models get two additional USB ports for the second row occupants, another 220 volt auxiliary power outlet and soft trim on the centre console.
The base GLX also scores upgraded 18-inch alloy wheels while the top-of-the-range Exceed gets a tailgate spoiler.
All models are powered exclusively by a 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel unit making 133kW and 430Nm that is paired to an eight-speed automatic which drives all four wheels.
Mitsubishi’s updated Pajero Sport range is now available at local dealerships.
