2014 Mitsubishi Pajero Adds 5-Star ANCAP Safety Rating

TMR Team | Jun 19, 2013

Mitsubishi's fourth-generation Pajero is now into its seventh year on the market, and the big family-hauling 4WD is showing no signs of slowing down.

To keep the big wagon near the top of your shopping list, Mitsubishi's local now carries a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating, up from its earlier 4-Star rating.

Boosting the Pajero's rating is the addition of a reversing camera and ISOFIX child restraints, joining Mitsubishi's RISE body construction system, along with front and side airbags and seatbelt reminders.

The updated line-up also sees the end of petrol models in the range, with only the 147kW/441Nm 3.2 litre diesel four-cylinder engine available for the 2014 model year.

Pricing and features are otherwise unchanged, with the five-seat GLX positioned at $50,990 with a five-speed manual transmission, and $53,990 for the five-speed automatic version.

Updated late last year, the GLX now offeres climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, a leather steering wheel and electric mirrors. There's also 17-inch alloys, front skid plate, rear fog lights, roof rails, wheelarch flares, and spare wheel cover.

The relatively new GLX-R model is now the cheapest seven-seat model, matching the GLX’s previous pricing of $55,990 in manual, and $58,990 in automatic.

Aside from the extra two pews, the GLX-R gains rear cabin air-conditioning, reversing camera, front fog lights, rear spoiler and side steps.

The VRX model is available with a manual for $60,990, whilst the automatic version drops $6900 to $63,990.

VRX models now come equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera and sensors, headlamp washers, auto headlamps and wipers, partial leather trim with front seat heaters, puddle lamps and side mirror-mounted indicators.

Pricing for the Exceed has also dropped, with the diesel now $4000 cheaper at $77,990.

The Exceed’s equipment remains as before, adding high-intensity discharge headlamps, full-leather and woodgrain trim, 860W Rockford audio system, rear-seat DVD and wireless headphones, and chrome door handles and mirrors.

Mitsubishi’s 2013 Pajero range is available at dealers now.

    a brilliant 4WD with an enviable history, Pajero is one of the greatest vehicles of its kind in the world, no I dont own one but this thing can drive up walls and its still competative even though its nearing the end of its model life, cant wait to see the next generation model, Im sure Toyota will be concerned for their Pajero sales, I mean Prado . . . bleh

    I've got this car and it takes me about everywhere. Stiff suspension, but that's fit for a car built for some serious off the road driving. Got only front seats, the rest is for transport of equipment with a fixed crane mounted to save my back. Wish they had constructed 2. Seatrow so that it submerged into the floor, then I could have kept that seatrow. (I needed all the cargo space I could get). Four wheel drive while towing is recommended but diesel consumption increases 20-25%. Live in Scandinavia with a duo engine heating system (diesel/electric) and that is a must here. Electric doorlock on rear door froze at -28C (plus wind). Solution: Opened the door and then closed it firmly because I figured something had frozen - it worked. Always wait ten seconds from turning on ignition to starting in wintertime. Until that yellow "cable symbol" goes off.

    Couldn,t be happier with this car. Bought one recently and compared to other makes its great value for money. Unlike some other 4wd it drives like a car around town but has brilliant off road capabilities. The seats are extremely comfortable and the vision from every sesting position is unmatched in any of its rivals.
