Mitsubishi to bid adieu to Pajero SFX by September-October

Rumours are doing the rounds that Mitsubishi could phase out the Mitsubishi Pajero SFX in the month of September and October. The SUV continued to sell in the domestic market however it has been removed from the other global markets long ago. Mitsubishi Pajero is a celebrated car from the Japanese car maker which enjoys high popularity among the SUV lovers. This is one of the reasons that the SUV enjoyed a long over stay in the Indian car market in spite of presence of other offerings present in the luxury SUV segment. The company of late launched a new version of the Pajero christened, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, therefore this could be one reason why the company is thinking to phase out the aged Pajero SFX.
