Styling Enhancements Revealed For The 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

Author: |

Mitsubishi opted to defer a complete overhaul of its Pajero Sport SUV, following the recent debut of the all-new Triton / L200 pickup truck. However, to maintain relevance until the arrival of the next generation anticipated in 2025, the existing Pajero Sport underwent a subtle facelift, incorporating minor adjustments to both its exterior and interior.

The third-generation Mitsubishi Pajero Sport made its debut in 2015, receiving a comprehensive facelift in 2019. The 2024 model year sees a second, more modest update, likely serving as a prelude to the forthcoming generation overhaul reportedly in development.

While the 2024 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport may appear familiar at first glance, closer inspection reveals notable styling revisions. These include a redesigned grille insert featuring a fresh honeycomb pattern on the center intake, accompanied by a revised lower bumper garnish. Mitsubishi also introduced a new set of 18-inch wheels and introduced a new Blade Silver exterior color option, also available with the Triton.

Furthermore, the flagship Pajero Sport GSR variant receives an enhanced dose of black exterior accents, encompassing mirrors, door handles, and tailgate handle, complemented by a new Graphite Grey exterior hue paired with a black roof. Additionally, the black extensions of the headlights, previously exclusive to the GSR trim, now extend across the entire lineup.

Inside, a noteworthy addition is the adoption of the Triton pickup's three-spoke steering wheel. High-spec Exceed and GSR models benefit from updated graphics for the 8-inch digital instrument cluster. The GSR trim elevates the interior ambiance with quilted two-tone burgundy and black synthetic leather upholstery, accentuated by dark titanium inserts. Meanwhile, the entry-level GLX variant now includes standard auto headlights and wipers.

It's worth noting that the details provided pertain to AU-spec models; however, in Thailand, the high-spec Elite Edition trim of the Pajero Sport offers an additional fold-down 12.1-inch screen for rear passengers.

In the Australian market, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport continues to be powered by the same 2.4-liter turbodiesel engine, delivering 178 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque. Conversely, in Thailand, the model benefits from the newer 2.4-liter turbodiesel sourced from the Triton, offering slightly higher power output at 181 horsepower. Notably, RWD trims have been discontinued in Australia, with the Pajero Sport exclusively available in 4WD configuration paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
