The horsepower of the Land Rover is by 9 percent grater when compared to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I. Because the difference is small this should not affect the car performance considerably.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Land Rover Discovery II accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h in 11.7 s, which is 1.1 s quicker in relation to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. But the difference is not as much significant to be taken into account when buying a ride.
distance between left and right side of a vehicle directly influences on interior space for travelers as well as stability during driving. The Land Rover is widther only by 100 millimeters in comparison to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4 and is not really worth considering.

racing at a timed event you would not even
observe the difference.
Ground clearance means the gap between the vehicle underbody and the ground. When it comes to the two compared cars, it is the Land Rover Discovery II 4.0 i V8 185HP manual 4x4 that has 50 mm higher ride height when compared with the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I.
