Safety & Technology

Pajero Sport

 

RISE BODY

Mitsubishi’s exclusive RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body design puts a protective framework around you and your passengers. In the event of a collision, energy is safely absorbed by crumple zones and directed around the cabin, away from occupants.

 

Anti-intrusion brake pedal

The brake pedal folds forward and inward during a frontal collision to help protect the driver’s legs.

Collapsible steering column

In a forward collision, the steering column will collapse and crumple, helping to prevent injury to the driver.

 

ELR seatbelts with pretensioners and force-limiters

During an emergency stop, the pretensioners on the ELR (emergency locking and retractable) seat belts automatically tighten to reduce body movement. The force-limiters then gradually release more evenly distribute stopping force, further reducing the chance of injury.

 

Side door impact bars

Thick side bars along the doors resist impact force in the event of a side collision, helping to protect occupants.

 


SUPERIOR TERRAIN HANDLING ABILITY

Some measure performance in seconds, some in millimeters. Mitsubishi measures it in obstacles overcome and goals reached. Because challenges come in all shapes and sizes, Pajero Sport is designed to climb up, over, around and through the toughest terrain that can nature can provide.

Extra –strong body construction

Pajero Sport uses high-tensile steel in key locations, creating an extra-rigid frame of beams help to direct damage around and away from the interior in the event of a collision.

A – Collapsible A-pillars absorb collision energy, so that less reaches the cabin interior.

B – Collapsible pedals reduce the risk of leg injury to the driver

C- Underfloor beams redirect collision energy around cabin

 

ABS with EBD

ABS keeps wheels from locking up to maintain control of the vehicle during hard emergency braking, preventing slipping and skidding. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) assists by redistributing braking force to the rear brakes as needed, enabling quicker stops even when carrying passengers and heavy loads.

Tight minimum turning radius

Pajero Sport’s remarkably tight 5.6m minimum turning radius gives drivers the ability to maneuver through tight spaces with ease.

6-Airbag System

In addition to front SRS airbags for both driver and front passenger, curtain airbags provide added protection to first-and second-row occupants. Together with seatbelts, they provide an excellent degree of collision safety.
