The long-running Nativa has been replaced with a new model for 2009, but Mitsubishi has chosen to rename it the Pajero Sport. Based on the latest L200 pickup-truck platform, the Pajero Sport also shares its entire front end with the L200, although the rest of the wagon body is completely new. Under the bonnet beats an easy-going 3.5-litre V6 engine, mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox with tiptronic mode, and a four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing. The base model comes with side steps, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, multi-mode dash display, CD/MP3 stereo with 4 speakers, manual a/c with rear vents, dual airbags, power windows, keyless entry, chrome-plated power mirrors, 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels, ABS with EBD, immobilizer, under-engine cover, front skid plate, and three rows of cloth-upholstered seating. The mid-range model gets cruise control, fog lamps, upgraded stereo with 8 speakers, automatic a/c, parking sensors and roof rails. The top model gets faux leather upholstery, sunroof, chrome interior bits and a rear differential lock.
