God has built terrains inhospitable to mankind, terrains where no man can go to. What did mankind build to counter this, the Mitsubishi Pajero. In its rather illustrious lifetime, there is no terrain which this brawny Paris to Dakar winner hasn't conquered. Ask any diehard offroader for his choice of a perfect SUV and the name Pajero is likely to echo unanimously alongwith that of the Land Rover. The new Pajero SFX thanks to a shot of steroids is bolder and tougher, and this couldn't spell better news for all those offroading freaks, including me. With an increased approach angle of 1 degree, the SFX now stands at 40.5 degrees while the ramp over break angle has been upped to a fine 23.5 degrees. The ground clearance now stands at an astounding 205m.

If that was not enough, the new Pajero sits on fatter 265/70 R15 tyres with wider foot prints that grips wet surfaces without any fuss. The dual tone shades which have become a trademark of the Pajero remains but the hues have changed, the SFX is available in new bright color schemes-granite, flame, deep purple, limestone, carbon, graphite. The all new interior is very impressive with its soft brown panel, plush leather seats, body colored headrests, modern dials and soft dash light. It also features a host of electronic gadgetries and safety features like power steering, central locking, climate control, ABS and front SRS airbags. The 2.8L turbocharged intercooler diesel engine blends in beautifully with the transmission system, which means great offroad fun. Refinement is like the Pajero SFX's middle name, it has a super select four wheel drive system (SS4-II) with 4 different drive modes which evenly distributes torque on demand, thus making mincemeat of the harshest of terrains.

The Pajero SFX is by far one of the most capable SUV's in the world; very few other SUVs come close to matching its versatility, durability and offroad capability. At Rupees 18.81 Lakhs, the Pajero SFX is very reasonably priced considering the fact that lesser mortals like the CRV and the Captiva are cheaper by only a few thousand. So, will the Pajero SFX steal the show away from the Captivas and the CRVs, I sure hope so.
