Pajero Mini

The Pajero Mini was launched in December 1994 as a new-approach mini recreational vehicle that fused the functionality of the Pajero with the simplicity and economy of a K-car. The Pajero Mini was a full-feature RV type model that steps outside of the K-car category. It used a high-rigidity monocoque structure, which integrated the body shell with a large cross-section frame, and cleared the Japanese 40 km/h frontal impact occupant injury protection standards. The Pajero Mini was offered with an innovative 4-cyclinder DOHC 20-valve intercooler-turbocharger version with 5-valves per cylinder. Giving better all-terrain performance, the Easy Select four-wheel driveline enabled the drive to change between two- and four-wheel drive and to switch from Hi to Lo range in four-wheel drive while on the move to match different road surface conditions. Its MacPherson strut front and 5-link rear suspension helped the Pajero Mini to deliver outstanding handling and stability as well as a comfortable ride. The interior was loaded with RV functional equipment including a Multi-meter that combined an electronic azimuth display compass, altimeter, external temperature and clock. 3-point ELR seatbelts, in which the freely extendable belt was automatically locked in the event of a sudden stop or collision, were standard. An SRS airbag system was also available.
