Mitsubishi Pajero Sport SVP Concept revealed
The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport SVP concept has been revealed in the UK overnight with Mitsubishi UK announcing the SVP Pack that will be available towards the end of the year.
Mitsubishi UK has revealed the (Shogun Sport as it’s known in the UK) Pajero Sport SVP Concept at the Commercial Vehicle Show in the UK overnight with the company announcing the SVP Pack would be made available later this year. Mitsubishi has said it’s seeking feedback on the SVP Concept before announcing final features and pricing of the SVP Pack later this year.
Practical Motoring reached out to Mitsubishi Australia about whether a similar pack might become available in Australia. Both are right-hand drive markets… According to Karl Gehling, head of corporate communications and government relations at Mitsubishi Australia, “The SVP concept was developed specifically for the UK market. If a concept was develop which could be offered in our market, we would consider it”.
So, take that to mean we won’t see the SVP Pack but that if there was the chance of one being available, Mitsubishi Australia would jump at the chance.
The Pajero Sport SVP Concept is more than just a sticker pack boasting 18-inch, Predator alloy wheels with a red split-rim design, BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres and special wheel arch extensions to accommodate the 40mm wider track. And Mitsubishi UK drafted in Walkinshaw Performance Limited to tweak the Koni suspension to match the wheel and tyre package, “offering both additional off-road comfort and improved on-road dynamics”. High-clearance side steps in black have been added too.
The SVP Concept gets an LED light bar on the roof, and rally-style PIAA driving lights on the front bumper. The SVP Concept adds a unique grille and spoiler and blacked-out elements like the boot lid badge panel, and light surrounds.
On the inside, the front seats have been beefed up with more side bolstering, and there’s red mood lighting now to match some of the contrasting red details on the exterior. The engine is unchanged as is the transmission.
Question: Do you think Mitsubishi Australia should add this as a cost-option pack for Pajero Sport?
