Without wanting to confuse things further, I’d suggest that you leave the VRX on the possibles list. Tyres are improving all the time and the simple fact of 18 inch wheels shouldn’t cause you too much of a problem if you find a good VRX at the right price.

These days the biggest issue with going up to 18 inch wheels is that the tyres will cost a few bucks more, but as this is the direction all vehicles seem to be moving in, the market will soon enough catch up.

You get a bit more fruit with the VRX as well.

In 2013 they changed the model line dropping GL and GLS but keeping VRX and Exceed. GLX became base model and GLX-R replaced GLS. 2013 models have rear diff lock as standard but have a look at the brouchures above for further details. Link to this revamp on model line up below.

https://www.motoring.com.au/mitsubis...-pajero-33986/

2015 brought the NX model with spec levels GLX, GLS and Exceed. All NX have 18" wheels as standard for info.

As you said on what you want in the car......rear air, diff lock, no 18" wheels and budget of $30000.

Looking at Carsales i'd be looking at a 2013/14 GLX-R. Quite a few on there between $25000 upto $41000 depending on kms, extras etc. Theres a couple of Platinums in your price range with a couple having the optional read diff lock fitted too.

Just my thoughts mate but based on your wants.
Cheers mate you have been brilliant I couldnt find these brouchures otherwise i could have answered my one questions.
For what I can see, which is what you basically said, best all-around model considering the price is the glx-r my13 or my14.
I get rear aircon, rear diff lock, 7 seats (which i wouldnt use daily but when relatives come to visit us from Eu will come in handy).
Gls has more or less same fruit but the diff lock...could be an alterantive.
Otherwise platinums or vrx a step up from glx-r...but so it's the price.

Yeah I know what you mean...I'll see when the time comes...as you said was mainly tyres cost related.

Thank you very much guys....now i have a clearer picture
Can't wait to get one next year

Hi guys, me again.
Second bub coming so i really need to make a decision now!

I wa settled on the 2013 nw glx-r , but for just over 30k I can now see quite a few 2015 nx glx.

Could you please confirm the main differences between the two?

17" vs 18" inch alloy
both with rear diff lock
both 7 seats
both have multi zone/rear aircon
looking at the photos on carsales the nx glx should have the Mitsubishi Multi Communication System (good or bad or useless? Some rate this as cr@p).
both have reverse camera (in rear mirror for the glx-r, should be on screen in the nx glx)
both don't have dpf
boh dont have hid but standard halogen, so bullbar wise = same

few ahestetical improvmentes on the nx over the nw

Anything else that you can think of?

So the question is, is it worth it....or am i better of saving those 2k?

The only thing that is stopping me from getting the nx is those stupid 18" wheels.
i live in perth and 90% of the 4wding i will be doing is beach/sand driving where being able to drop more air is a must).
really undecided

Get the slightly cheaper one, and spend the extra savings on a 2" lift -- the best mod you can do, IMO. Especially on soft WA beach sand ....
I have the NW GLX-R and it's been great. You can plug a bank of USBs (in a small switched hub -- i have 3 x 64Gb thumb drives loaded with tunes) into the socket in the glove box, and the 'basic' (ie, non MMCS) head unit works fine with that. Mirror reversing is more than adequate.
Other than that, I guess you're looking slightly less in terms of resale value on the NW (vs NX), but if you plan on keeping for more than 5 years then it becomes moot anyway.

I agree with linc......If it was me I would pick the NW glx-r and spend the $'s saved on perhaps some other goodies you may want.....lift, bullbar, winch etc etc.

Putting a spanner in works you could get the NX and hope to find some second hand 17" wheels

Your 2015 NX GLX probably won't have A/C in the rear whereas the NW almost certainly has it there. This could make a difference when you have young kids in the second (or even moreso the third) row of seats.

I am going to take a look at this two tonight, they are at the same car dealer!

https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/d...16163245/?Cr=0

https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/d...16041196/?Cr=1


And then I am going to see this one as well https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/d...gType=Showcase


What are your thoughts....age vs mileage?
And does anyvody know what type and brand of bullbar that one on the nx is, and if is it possible to let's say swap it for an arb + winch one without issues?
