I took delivery of Pajero Sport from Maya Motors, Chennai on 7th May'12 and drove it to Bengaluru, where i stay. For the next 7 days i have been driving it 30-40 kms a day. She has done about 700 kms so far out of which half is on highway and rest in city.
I actively considered Toyota Fortuner and Hyundai Santa Fe and took a test ride in both. However, ended up having a Pajero Sport which i had not taken a test ride on, not even seen physically !
What a fantastic decision in the end ?!!!
It takes me around 30-min to my office in the morning if i start a little early and those 30-min are the happiest in my life now.
The posture on driver seat, the view thru the windshield, that grip on the steering wheel, responsiveness of the engine after 2000rpm, smoothness of the drive, ease with which she tackles the speed breakers and handles the rough patches on the road, manoeuvrability in traffic ... .. .
and the head-turner that she is ... .. .
the experience is like WOW !
