The 2021 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport looks the same as it did last year, but a closer look at the features list reveals some changes.

    Prices are also up by $500 for the GLX and Exceed, with the range now opening at $47,490 before on-road costs for the five-seater GLX.

    The GLX is now the only way to get a five-seater Pajero Sport, with Mitsubishi axing the two-row option from the mid-range GLS.

    The GLS also loses its previously standard leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats, though it gains a new Deluxe option package.

    The $2250 package adds back leather upholstery and power front seats, as well as the previously Exceed-exclusive surround-view camera.

    Adaptive cruise control is now standard across the range with its inclusion in the base GLX.

    As Mitsubishi typically offers, there are nationwide drive-away deals available across the range.

    The 2021 Pajero Sport is currently on sale.

    Servicing and Warranty

    The 2021 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport requires servicing every 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first.

    Servicing at dealerships also lets you take advantage of Mitsubishi’s 10 years of capped-price servicing.
