2021-12-09 by M. Yousaf

Mitsubishi Pajero Mini

Mitsubishi is a well known car brand that exports around the world and makes several styles and types of vehicles. One of these is the Pajero Mini Kei car which is one of the lightest and smallest vehicles that is safe for highway driving.  They offer fuel efficiency and have the advantages of parking and handling that are specific to small vehicles. Launched in 1994, it remained popular and in active production until 2012.  Currently the only way to obtain one is through an exporter of used mini pajero from Japan, as they are not built outside of Japan and new models are not being made. You can find stock of used pajero mini under our mini SUVs section.

 

Exterior

Just like the larger version of Mitsubishi Pajero SUV that it is based upon, the Pajero Mini is almost identical in appearance just on a smaller.  It maintained the same shape and ratios, but was scaled down to improve fuel efficiency and appeal to the consumers who were looking for a smaller vehicle.  Japan has tax savings and offers incentives for smaller cars as they are better for the environment and cause less congestion on roads and parking spaces than larger vehicles.  The Pajero Mini offers the same look and functionality of the full sized SUV version of the same car, allowing those who like the style and function to also enjoy the benefits of a smaller size. 

 

Interior

The smaller wheelbase and shorter length makes the interior smaller than that of other vehicles, but it has been designed in such a way that it feels roomy for the size. With seatings for 4 people the seats are soft and made to be durable and extend the lifespan of the vehicle. It offers plenty of storage in the back trunk and can carry a full grocery shop or luggage for any trip.

 

Specifications

Fitting well in the Kei cars category it is 129 inches long, 54.9 inches wide, and only 64 inches high. When weighed, it is about 1874 lbs and while technically it is an SUV it is the size of a subcompact car.  The engine size can be smaller due to the smaller size, and the options for the engines come in with 4A30, 650 cc, 14MVV engine or a 4A30T, 669 cc, 14 Turbo engine.  Maintaining its ability to offroad and be used for hobbies like camping or fishing, it has a 7 inch clearance off the ground and comes in 4 wheel drive with a compass, inclinometer, and temperature guages to ensure that you are aware of your surroundings at all times.

 

Built for offroading, safe highway driving, and daily use, this small vehicle offers the best of SUV and a car to build a popular kei model. It is available in automatic and standard versions, and with a range of options included. They are available in both 4 wheel drive and later versions were created with a rear wheel drive.  When selecting a used vehicle, it is important to ensure it is road safe and can be registered and insured.  

 

The safety features are similar to those in other vehicles including the power steering, ABS for the braking system, airbags and independent spring suspension.  With other options including power windows or locks and upgraded sound systems, air conditioning, it combines safety with comfort. 

 

Comparison to the Montero

A Montero is the Mitsubishi SUV that is available in North America and has been quite popular across the USA. This is the full size version of the Pajero and in the USA it was marketed as the Montero, with names changed to fit the culture and the community in which it was sold.  The popularity of the Montero has led to the Pajero Mini to also be popular throughout the USA and both the mainland and the territories.  This has led to the increase in the importation of the older Pajero Minis from Japan to the USA, Canada and Australia and those over 25 years old will qualify for the exemption program that allows them to be imported with fewer regulations and requirements. 

 

Where to find a Pajero Mini

The most efficient way to find this vehicle is to locate exporters of use Pajero Mini from Japan, and have them assist in locating and shipping one that fits your needs.  The exporter will know many vehicles vehicles that are available and locate one that fits your specifications best, then handle the sale and shipping it to you.  An exporter will know all of the laws and rules that must be followed, have relationships with the handlers and the shippers, and can make the whole process efficient.  They will know the specifications that are most popular, how to check the past history of the vehicle, what inspection requirements are needed before shipping, and what documentation are required in order to import hassle-free in the USA, Canada and Australia.
