The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a 7-Seater SUV that has been in production for three generation starting from 1996 to present. It is alternatively known as the Shogun Sport and was built on the Pajero platform. The Pajero Sport however does not enjoy as much success in Kenya as other similar sized SUVs such as the Toyota Fortuner and the Toyota Prado. This might however change soon with the availability of the third generation model in the second hand market. It has a modern design that coupled with its 7-seater capacity will appeal to more people than ever before.
