Pajero sport any day,Fortuner has already disappointed my zillions of times while on the other hand even the old under powered Pajero kept me happy.So I am always ready for a new improved Pajero.
In fact I have booked the TD too and is waiting for their call.(the dealer near to me is yet to get the TD vehicle)
^^Not yet, maybe they have called up but I haven't received their call. Will look forward for a TD(a good long one) after that only I can compare the two. But yes, since the car is an improved Pajero hence I have a lot of expectations from the car(have driven Pajero a couple of times).
The rexton looks a bit ugly from the back. A have also sat in one,has got a much better interior than the fortuner. But nothing is as good as the good old pajero. The sport is good but still my favorite suv is the SFX.
The dimensions of Mitsubishi Papero Sport and Toyota Fortuner are included in the attached picture. Pajero Sport is having cabin volume (inclusive of all three rows) lower than Fortuner. The front glass on bonnet is having wider bottom and top is relatively narrow on appearance
Fortuner and PS are both quite close when it comes to head on comparison.
the place where T-Fort wins hands down is in terms of A.S.S.
Toyota has a good enough network whereas HM/Mitsu are virtually non existant.
As of now if I were to buy one. I would buy the T-Fort( inspite the not so good ride quality) untill and unless PS blows me away with the entire package.
I wouldnt want to be stranded without spare parts and certified mechanics to install them
Toyota After sales is really good. Not only India, outside India too Toyota after sales are meeting Toyota Quality Procedures. The Toyota dealership of south Kerala is explained in this Link.
Mitsubishi vehicles are built tough, and Pajero Sport no exception. Their dealer locations are very few, and the dealers are not having spare parts locally stored. Hence parts availability is a concern. The resale value of Mitsubishi vehicles are also on the lower side. I have extensively used Mitsubishi vehicles, including Pajero. If after-sales meets quality measures, then Pajero Sport will have a good future.
We had broken the story earlier that Toyota will be launching a new variant of the Fortuner with a 2.5-litre diesel engine this year. We now know that the Fortuner 2.5-diesel will be launched in the first week of October. Mated to a manual transmission, this 2.5-litre engine will make 142bhp. This two-wheel drive variant will be positioned below all the current 3.0-litre offerings from the Toyota stable.
