Overview

Based on the platform of the Minica, the Pajero Mini was styled as a miniature version of the company's successful Pajero sport utility vehicle, in response to the SUV craze of the late 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Compared to the full-sized original, the kei vehicle featured a shorter wheelbase, four-wheel drive, and a choice of naturally aspirated or turbocharged 660 cc four cylinder engines.

The popularity of the vehicle inspired Mitsubishi to create several limited editions, including the "Iron Cross", "Desert Cruiser", "White Skipper" and "Duke". In October 1998 the kei car regulations were again updated, and the Pajero Mini was widened and lengthened.[2]

Since 2008 Mitsubishi has produced the Nissan Kix, an OEM version of the Pajero Mini, expanding a similar deal already in place for the Mitsubishi eK/Nissan Otti.[3]
