Meet the Mitsubishi Pajero Short Wheelbase SUV!

The Mitsubishi Pajero SWB Has Been Discontinued

Synonymous with luxury, comfort and good driveability on and off-road, South African motorists have long enjoyed getting behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Pajero SWB. It has many of the same features as the rest of the Pajero range but is more nimble and makes for a great urban vehicle with an impressive turning circle. Sadly, it is being discontinued with no intention of a direct replacement. However, you can still get your hands on a used Mitsubishi Pajero SWB but you’ll have to act fast since it remains a popular car. If you love what the Pajero short wheelbase had to offer – the good news is there are some great Pajero SWB alternatives including the Pajero Sport, Mitsubishi Outlander and the Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Mitsubishi Pajero SWB

Mitsubishi Pajero Short Wheelbase

The Mitsubishi Pajero Short Wheelbase (SWB) SUV allows you to get into, and out of, smaller spaces than the regular Long Wheelbase Pajero. It has almost all of the same features as the rest of the Pajero range, but is more nimble and makes a great city vehicle that has an exceptional turning circle. Powered by the same DOHC Intercooled Turbo Diesel that is found in the rest of the Pajero range, the Short Wheelbase Mitsubishi Pajero does not skimp on power or torque. It is in fact an accomplished off-roader and uses the rally-proven Super Select II 4WD System with Rear Diff Lock to move effortlessly between 2H mode highway performance and the more rugged 4H mode. This can all be done whilst driving, as long as the vehicle is doing under 100km/h, which means that driving mode changes can be made at any time.

From a visual perspective the biggest difference between the SWB Pajero and the more conventional Long Wheelbase (LWB) is that this version of the popular Pajero only has two passenger doors. This does impact on the length of the SWB Pajero, but thanks to some ingenious design work by the Mitsubishi engineers the shorter wheelbase does not translate to a nore cramped cabin. On the contrary, this version of the Pajero is full of comfort and convenience features that make any journey undertaken in it a pleasure, and it still easily carries a family safely from point A to point Z no matter how far the trip.

BIG on Attitude

The adage that dynamite comes in small packages perfectly describes the Pajero 3-door, although once inside you’ll see that the smaller body miraculously does not translate into a much smaller cabin. This is still a SUV after all, and the interior and the outside looks of the Pajero convey a style that is ruggedly refined and not out of place in the urban jungle or the African bushveld. In fact, the attitude conveyed by the Pajero Short Wheelbase in looks is not just skin-deep, because this is one rough, tough and capable off-roader that conquered even the worst roads that we took it on (and even a few places where there were no roads) with ease.

BIG on Comfort

The 3-door Pajero SUV is packed full of just as many upgrades and standard accessories as the bigger 5-door Pajero, which makes it an exceptionally high spec vehicle indeed! These comfort and convenience features include a rear-view camera, USB port, privacy glass, a multi-information display, Bluetooth with Hands-free Voice Control, Electric Windows with Anti-trapping Function, Fully Trimmed Leather Interior and of course Leather Seats.

Mitsubishi Pajero SWB Fuel Consumption Chart

Mitsubishi Pajero SWB Fuel Consumption*

The big 3.2-litre DOHC Intercooled Turbocharged DI-DC Engine that powers the Short Wheelbase Mitsubishi Pajero puts out a massive amount of power and torque ( you can find these figures further up this page), but yet it is surprisingly fuel friendly for a vehicle of this size. Take a look at the latest Pajero SWB Fuel Consumption Figures below, but please note that they were done under European testing conditions. This might make for a small variation in real world driving, but still does not take away from the fact that this is a very economical engine for its 3.2 litre size.

Fuel System Combined Fuel Consumption
Common Rail Direct Injection 9.5 Litres per 100km
