Thanks to wikipedia ....

The Mitsubishi Pajero iO is a mini SUV produced by Mitsubishi Motors since June 15, 1998 in three-door form, and August 24, 1998 as a five-door. The "iO" name is derived from the Italian for "me" which, according to Mitsubishi, generates an image of being easy to get to know, easy to drive, and of being one's very own Pajero".

It was exported as the Montero iO, and to Europe as the Pajero Pinin, Shogun Pinin or simply Pinin to honour Pininfarina, which built the local market versions of the car at their factory near Turin, Italy. It has also been produced in Brazil as the Pajero TR4 since 2002 under license. The name was changed after imported versions were referred to as "1.0" instead of "iO", which could lead to confusion about the engine sizes. The Brazilian TR4 has since July 2007 been Mitsubishi's first four-wheel drive flexible-fuel vehicle, running on gasoline, ethanol or a combination of the two.

Hallo Simon,
what about the rear diff of the different models? My 2002 has a lock, my son's 2005 or 6 has something else and now I see the 2014 has a lock again.
From another, very interesting discussion on this forum, I figured that a lock is simpler to use and for very specific applications while Traction Control takes a bit more savvy (in off road situations) with wider applicability, is that right?
