The new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Splash will have an option to opt different custom color. Mitsubishi now allows customers to choose from over 30 different colors and patterns for the Pajero Sport. These patterns and colors are essentially graphics that can be stickered on to the SUV.

The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Splash comes with three design patterns with five dual-tone colour options.
Customers can configure the colour through the online configurator. The customers can try different patterns and colours before finalising which colour to go with. With the new colors configuration, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport looks attractive when compared to the standard model.
