Johannesburg - Mitsubishi’s Pajero Sport has been given some extra equipment to help sweeten the already well-priced deal it offers in the face of stiff competition from the Fortuner and Everest.
Most of these are safety upgrades, including a seventh airbag that protects the driver’s knees - this comes in addition to the front, side and curtain airbags already fitted as standard.
An even more logical spec addition, given its positioning as a family vehicle, is the long-overdue fitment of ISO-FIX child seat anchors.
On the convenience front, a 120 watt power plug has been added, allowing occupants to charge their laptops and other electronic devices.
Finally the braked towing capacity has been increased to 2700kg in the case of 4x2 models and 2790kg for 4x4 versions.
