SUV baseado na picape L200 Triton ganha a mesma cara do Eclipse Cross

Conhecido como Montero Sport ou Shogun Sport em alguns mercados, o Mitsubishi Pajero Sport chegou à sua segunda geração em agosto de 2015, então estava na hora de receber uma atualização no seu visual. O SUV já tinha uma cara bem ousada com sua grade enorme, mas o facelift vai um pouco além ao aplicar o design "Dynamic Shield" da marca, visto no Eclipse Cross e, mais recentemente, na picape L200 Triton - que dá origem ao Pajero Sport.

Entre no carro e verá que a fabricante instalou um painel de instrumentos digital de 8" e uma central multimídia atualizada e com display também de 8". O Mitsubishi Pajero Sport parece mais refinado do que antes graças às superfícies com materiais macios por todo o interior, enquanto os passageiros de trás tem acesso à sua própria saída do ar-condicionado, ao lado de uma porta USB. A tampa do porta-malas conta com acionamento elétrico por movimento, e o proprietário ainda tem acesso à informações e alguns comandos do SUV pelo smartphone.

Com a atualização, a Mitsubishi aproveitou para melhorar a segurança do Pajero Sport com mais equipamentos com assistente de mudança de faixa e alerta de tráfego cruzado. Passe para o modelo 4x4 e o SUV terá um botão redesenhado que muda o modo off-road. Fechando as mudanças no interior está o porta-objetos atualizado e o console inferior revisado.

Assim como o modelo pré-reestilização, o Pajero Sport 2020 utiliza um motor 2.4 turbodiesel de quatro cilindros, usado também pela picape L200 Triton. Gera 181 cv e 43,8 kgfm de torque, transmitido pelo câmbio automático de 8 marchas.

O Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2020 já começou a ser vendido na Tailândia, onde o SUV é produzido. O lançamento em outros mercados ainda não foi confirmado. A mudança no Brasil pode demorar um pouco, já que o utilitário foi lançado em abril.

The MITSUBISHI MOTORS' signature Dynamic Shield front view design concept has been further evolved on the new PAJERO SPORT while securing good visibility, emphasizing the sense of wideness with the headlights continuing from the front grille and the combination lamps at the bumper corners. The higher bonnet of the vehicle exhibits a deeper front face, while a more solid, powerful chrome part design projects a more refined, sophisticated appearance.

It will send notification to the driver's smartphone to lock the doors via the app when the driver leaves the vehicle with the doors unlocked. The Power Tailgate can be opened or closed by smartphone. In addition, the tailgate reservation system can be preset by smartphone anywhere, which enables the driver to open or close the tailgate automatically when he/she approaches or leaves the vehicle. The keyless operation system is effective between the vehicle and within Bluetooth* operating range.
 
(3)High quality and comfortable interior
  • Refreshed floor console and soft padded interior door handles enhance the overall interior look with quality and comfort.
