Ever since its launch the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has had its own loyal fan-following due to its supreme off-road ability and the fact that it also plays the role of a luxury SUV very well being more modern that the iconic Pajero that was before it.
However there is an increasing number of customers who want to have SUV's with automatic gearboxes which make them easy to live with in day to day driving. A perfect example being the Toyota Fortuner as with an automatic gearbox the Fortuner has found many takers.
To tap into this market Mitsubishi will be launching the Pajero Sport automatic. The Pajero Sport with the 5-speed automatic will increase the sales of this butch looking SUV even more. Some months back Mitsubishi launched the Anniversary edition of the Pajero Sport and the launch of the automatic version is part of the plan to keep updating this SUV.
