There are SUVs here and SUVs there on the roads worldwide these days. It’s a very successful class of vehicle that didn’t even exist when I was first in the market for a car, but now they are everywhere. And here in Japan, too, the SUV has really caught on because of its higher driver’s seat position and better view, because of its good load capacity, and, because in the snow county areas and for those people who need some 4wd capability but don’t need a full-on off-road brute like a Toyota Land Cruiser or a Suzuki Jimny, the SUV is the perfect choice.
But in this now very popular class of vehicle, there is nothing quite like the Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution: This SUV is really a homologation special that was originally purpose built for the Paris Dakar Rally. The engine is a special tuned version of Mitsubishi’s 3.5 liter V6 with the addition of DOHC, 24-valves and MIVEC (Mitsubishi’s take on variable valve timing). The engine is non-turbo but has good power output and a seriously high redline.
While many SUVs are full time All Wheel Drive (AWD) the Pajero Evo is Part Time 4WD, so it’s rear wheel drive for on road but when you need it you’ve actually got a choice of three settings to power all the wheels: Four Wheel Drive High, Four Wheel Drive High with Differential Lock (diff-lock), and Four Wheel Drive Low with Diff-Lock. So you’ve got a lot of solid off-road capability here, as you would expect, and a choice of manual or automatic transmission is offered. But don’t think for a minute that this SUV (nearly tipping the scales at 1,800kgs) is any slouch in on road performance: Nothing is sacrificed, 0-60 is polished off in something around 7 seconds in the Mitsubishi Pajero Evo.
This is certainly one of the most unique cars that you cars import direct from Japan when you are looking for a good fresh import to the UK, Canada, or Ireland. (The import regulations of these countries now make the Pajero Evo an easy car to import.) There are good low mileage examples here in Japan these days but just keep in mind that, while the Pajero Evo is classed as an SUV, it’s really a performance car and so we recommend that you have any of these units you want to buy from Japan inspected pre-purchase. Of course, as a Japan-based used car exported, we’ll arrange all that for you.

I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience.
Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
