The iconic Mitsubishi Shogun is back, and it’s stronger and slicker than ever before. This sophisticated SUV takes every road in its stride, and you’ll barely hear the tremendous effort it puts out, either. That’s what sophistication is all about – it’s effortless.
This brawny SUV is certainly built for sturdiness with its traditional shape, complete with a spare wheel built into the rear door. Large wheel arches create the muscular physique, and it’s clad with chrome detailing to hone a touch of class. Enjoy crisp visibility, even in difficult weather, thanks to BID Xenon headlights with auto levelling to help brighten up your path as you ramble up and over hills. Silver side steps allow you to get in and out of the tall SUV effortlessly, and you can choose between three and five-door models.
Built for comfort, the new Shogun offers every passenger plenty of space to relax, in part afforded by the tall roof height. Climate control comes as standard to keep everyone happy and most passengers also get a cupholder to use. Plus the front seats are fitted with heaters for extra comfort in winter. Expect plenty of shiny aluminum features across the dash. It’s practical, too, with handy tie-down hooks in the boot to keep all your belongings in place when the road gets that bit more exciting.
The Shogun has a 3.2-litre direct injection diesel engine under its hood, which is paired to a four-wheel drive chassis for incredible traction over uneven terrain. Direct injection fuel technology provides excellent low-down torque. Mitsubishi is proud to say that it is probably the biggest 4-cylinder engine in any production car. It’s quieter than ever before, giving you a relaxing drive when you want it. But it’s also impressively fuel efficient for such a powerful SUV.
When you’ve switched from the mountains to the motorway, you can activate the cruise control and let the Shogun do the hard work for you. Or, flick on Sports Mode and witness the Shogun in action as it switches over to a clutchless manual gearshift for an instant response from every change.
Choose a higher trim level and it will come with a rear-view camera, so you’ll never have to worry about getting into those tricky spots again. You’ll also have the comfort of live traffic message information and satellite navigation to help plan your route and avoid heavy congestion. To accompany your drive, you can use the Bluetooth to stream music, which comes as standard, or load music onto an SD memory card to slot into the dash if you choose a higher trim.
For your safety on complicated roads, the Shogun has Active Stability Control to detect any signs of slippage and help regulate the car’s movement, while Traction Control prevents skidding and facilitates a smoother start.
