The Pajero Sport is a big car and much to the delight of the SUV lovers, it shows its size in a not so subtle manner. It has a straight face that goes well with the size and design of the car. The angular headlamps are connected via similarly sized chrome grille and just the front bumper looks bigger than half the entry-level hatchbacks.
The Pajero gets a front bash plate with a high approach angle, which will certainly help in off-roading, but from the design perspective, it makes the car look tall and lean unlike its rather bulky competitors. The side profile also has all the right elements to make it look like a brawny off-roader. The pronounced wheel arches, contrasting roof rails, side step and the massive wheel well, all do their bit for the design but the rear looks hurriedly done. The tail lamps look nice, so does the spoiler at the top, but somehow does not seem appealing especially considering that this is a big old-school SUV.
Overall, the Pajero is the nicest looking SUV; where the Fortuner is overtly bulky and the Endeavour is excessively long, the Pajero has a nice balance in terms of styling.
