The Pajero Sport
Style, comfort and safety meet rugged appeal! If you want to look tough but still ride around in comfort then this is your Pajero!

It offers an exciting drive and is available in both a 4×2 and a 4×4 option, which makes it a very versatile Pajero option.

The Pajero Short Wheelbase
In our opinion this i one of the greatest 4×4 vehicles ever sold in South Africa. Yes, it is a 2-door vehicle, which makes it a little less family friendly, but its short wheelbase makes it an exceptionally capable off-road vehicle. This is a 4×4 that lives for adventure and we cannot recommend it enough!

Pajero Long Wheelbase
