Some 4-wheel drives look the part, but then fall apart when things get tough. Not Pajero. It was forged in the heat of the Sahara desert, in over 10 years of the punishing Paris–Dakar rally.

It wasn’t easy. But it was worth it; no other competitor has ever matched our record of wins. And what we learnt here goes into the Pajero you drive today. For sporting and technical achievement, it’s miles ahead.

While it’s built for a whole lot of living, it’s also very easy to live with, thanks to uncommon levels of luxury, inside and out. There’s an advanced, integrated system of safety features. The on-road feeling is refined and firm.

As comfortable as it is capable, Pajero has it all.

You might not want to go charging through the Sahara. But you could.
