The Mitsubishi Pajero is to steal a car for the horse. Or, at least, to the nags. In the affluent suburbs of Hamburg anyway, you can see this model often with a horse box in tow. Three and a half tons of towing capacity, the car gets the spot. If need be, also of a muddy Meadow: By a lever on the center console can be switched from rear-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and, thanks to the Central differential lock and additional premises, increased regulation, the traction in four stages. The Pajero not only looks as if he could barely stop.

You could not blame the car (and its owners) that a vehicle weight of 2.4 tons, 3.2-Liter displacement and 245 grams of CO2 emissions per Kilometer. The Pajero you would be wrong. The Run is a grafter of the old school and not trendy SUV: big, strong, robust and, above all, honest.

The sharp-edged chunks don’t try to make Lifestyle. The looks in the fourth, since 2007, built Generation, as if he had just come from the stables, and know of no celebration in the evening. This mentality transfers to the driver. For that reason alone, because it is going up into the car and then up there on a high seat, perched. It is time to start, swing the mirror to the side, then the diesel los kollert engine.

The basic feeling in this car is: a Farmer. And if you roll now, through a wide farm gate and the private lands could depart on a lonely road, everything would be wonderful. But life is neither a Pony, nor horses, nor large farm. In our case, for example, it is enlivened by gentrification-ridden big-city district, closely built, and no free Parking. Logical that you will feel with the Pajero in this area, such as in rubber boots at a Gala; and so judge you also.

Just get out of the city!

It is true that Certain cars belong in special environments. And the Pajero has been designed in the beginning of the eighties, mainly as a work device. Later, the car created a unique “The goal, the goal is”Nimbus, in the racing versions of the all-wheel-Brocken, a total of twelve Times, the Extreme-rally Paris-Dakar won. The right environment for the Pajero is so beyond the city limits. And there, where cars are also dirty, as tractors drudgery, or in the main professional is actually trucks.

In these disciplines, the Mitsubishi Pajero is pretty good. To focus especially, because the technology gives the driver enough freedom of movement on all around it – the Drive itself has surprisingly casually. The speed-sensitive power steering makes the cranks on the steering Wheel to the finger game. Ums Switch you do not have to worry at all, since Mitsubishi with the new model year, the five-speed automatic standard equipment and the five-speed manual transmission from the offer has been deleted.

Mitsubishi offers the Pajero three-door (ab 35.990 Euro) and as a five-door hatchback from 39.550 Euro. All models are equipped with the 3.2-litre four-cylinder Diesel and the four-stage all-wheel drive. Are the differences solely in terms of equipment. The five-door test car, we got to Meet, was kitted out to the highest level (50.990 Euro), and in the pearl effect color “malachite Green” painted (800 Euro extra charge).

860-Watt music system – and at the same time the rest yourself

The Details with which Mitsubishi justifies the higher price of the Top Version, are, for example, 18-inch wheels, roof rails, burl wood finish to the dashboard, the glass sliding-Hub-roof, leather seats, 7-inch touch screen with behind it a hidden CD slot, and an 860-Watt music system of the company to Rockford, including a Subwoofer with 25 cm diameter on the left rear in the trunk.

Certainly, these are all pleasant things, but the essence of the Pajero remains to be rustic-reliable beings. There are faster, more manageable, more comfortable, and, of course, more elegant cars. But few of the rest such as the colossal Mitsubishi.

What still needs to be mentioned is this: For a long time the big thing was a car that not only managed to reach the officially declared average consumption of 9.3 liters of Diesel per 100 kilometres, but at times, even. This, of course, on paved road, and only with rear-wheel drive. And clearly, a lot of Fuel is still, but also for a lot of car. Who would only trot a few miles to work and back and at the weekend, perhaps into the Green for a Pajero anyway is a couple of sizes too big.
