Pajero Star Performer in OzRoamer Car of the Year 2012 Awards Featured

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited’s (MMAL) legendary Pajero has claimed top spot in its category for the OzRoamer 2012 Car of the Year awards.

Edging out commendable competitors, the 2012 Pajero Exceed 3.2CDi automatic was named ‘Best seven-seat 4WD over $70,001’.

Oz Roamer editor Rob Fraser said important factors in the Pajero Exceed’s win included its best value for money, more interior space, consistent performance and its best overall balance.

“The Pajero outperformed all its rivals with the judges awarding it best value for money; you can buy a Pajero, add the extras and still have change.” Fraser said.

The panel of nine judges reviewed each vehicle subjectively and objectively measuring them against their competitors but more importantly the criteria reflect real life situations that assist readers to make educated buying decisions.

MMAL’s CEO, Mutsuhiro Oshikiri, said the award highlights the Pajero’s superior value in a competitive market.

“From the entry-level GLX to the luxury Exceed, there is a Pajero to suit all budgets and to cater for all on and off-road needs, all with exceptional power and performance with no compromise on value” Oshikiri said.

The Pajero Exceed claimed top spot in the category ahead of the Toyota Landcruiser GXL Diesel, Toyota Prado Kakadu Turbo Diesel and LandRover Discovery 4 SDV6 SE.

With 12 categories and over 40 contenders the winners will feature in a special edition of OzRoamer 4WD and SUV Guide 2012 which is ready for distribution later this month.

The Pajero Exceed is packed full of features and offers the ultimate in comfort four-wheel driving. The Exceed is available with the 3.2L Common Rail Direct Injection Intercooled Turbo Diesel engine or the 3.8L V6 MIVEC Petrol engine both coupled with five-speed automatic transmission featuring Sports Mode. The Exceed comes standard with luxury specifications and superior safety features including seven airbags, Active Stability and Traction Control and reverse parking sensors.

Mitsubishi offers a five year / 130,000 km new vehicle warranty, five year Roadside Assist and  Capped Price Servicing for the first four years or 60,000 km of ownership on all new vehicles
