Shogun Sport hits UK shores
Mitsubishi are back with their latest interpretation of a capable full-size off-roader, as the all-new Shogun Sport arrives in the UK.
This new flagship vehicle from MMC promises true off-road ability in a package that remains appealing to those needing the space and versatility of a large SUV.
The Shogun Sport will be powered by an all-aluminium 2.4-litre diesel unit, married to an eight-speed auto box that’s exclusive to this particular Mitsubishi. There’s also Mitsubishi’s Super Select II system, plus a rear differential lock for those tricky off-highway situations.
Mitsubishi themselves claim this is a “flagship off-road vehicle”, and promise a unique experience of luxurious on-road dynamics blended with “exemplary” off-road performance.
If you’re familiar with our fleet, you’ll know we’re proud to have had an L200 Barbarian with us for the past couple of years. It’s a capable off-roader especially in the context of what it’s designed to be, but the five-speed auto and leaf-sprung rear axle can have their drawbacks.
For us, this new Shogun Sport comes with a decent amount of promise. Full-size, comfortable, capable away from the road. It’s certainly a vehicle we’ll have on our radar as we look to expand the fleet over the next year or so.
