Mitsubishi Pajero Named Best Value for Money Third Year in a Row - (Australia)

July 30th, 2008

Mitsubishi’s legendary Pajero four-wheel drive diesel wagon was last week awarded the Best Value for Money trophy for the third year in a row by Overlander magazine.

The announcement was made in a feature acknowledging the best four-wheel drives across the full market spectrum, considering all models currently available on the Australian market.

In addition to winning the Best Value for Money category, Mitsubishi’s Pajero DiD received an honourable mention in the Best Medium Wagon Diesel category, and the Mitsubishi Pajero short-wheel base DiD received an honourable mention in the Best Small Wagon category.

Robert McEniry, president and chief executive officer of MMAL was delighted that the Pajero has once again taken out the title for Best Value for Money.

“As fuel prices continue to increase, customers in the market for a new vehicle need to count their pennies and save as much money as possible in running costs. Mitsubishi is proud to say the Pajero can help them do that with its great fuel economy, competitive servicing costs and our class leading warranty.” said Mr McEniry.

Mitsubishi's Diamond Advantage combines a 5-year or 130,000km new vehicle warranty, a 10-year or 160,000km Powertrain Warranty with 5-year roadside assist also included.

With a 3.2 litre turbo-diesel engine producing 118kW of power and 381Nm of torque, the Pajero boasts enhanced performance and improved fuel economy. Starting from $51,090, the Mitsubishi Pajero DiD truly is the best value for money four-wheel drive according to Mathieu Raudonikis, Editor of Overlander magazine.

“Even the base GLX model comes standard with all the kit that you really need,” he said.

“Aside from fine performance from its engine, the Pajero’s appeal lies in its combination of sharp on-road dynamics and more than handy off road ability,” said Mr Raudonikis.

The Mitsubishi Pajero is available from more than 200 dealerships nationally.
