Mitsubishi Shogun Sport (2018): At A Glance

Based on the L200, the Shogun Sport is a seven-seater that's powered by the same 2.4-litre diesel from the pick-up. However, the four-cylinder diesel engine gets more power than the pick-up truck, with 180PS and 430Nm of torque. This means NEDC combined consumption is 32.8mpg and 227g/km of CO2, while the max legal braked towing capacity is 3100kg.

Mitsubishi describes the Shogun Sport as 'built for the most extreme family adventures' which is why it comes with lots of off-road systems as part of the grandly named Super Select II all-wheel drive system. These include hill descent control and a dedicated off-road mode, as well as trailer start assist.

Providing space for seven people, the entry-level '3' trim includes leather upholstery, electrically-adjustable front seats, LED headlamps and parking sensors. The higher spec ‘4’ model - which adds £2,000 to the list price - gets heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, crash mitigation systems and a 510W audio system.

Load space is 502 litres to the window line 5 seats up; 1,488 litres all rear seats folded and a useful 131 litres with all seats up. As with the rest of the range, the Shogun Sport will have a five-year/62,500 mile warranty when it goes on sale in March 2018.

The top of the range model adds heated seats, a bind spot warning system and a 'Multi-around Monitor System' which creates a bird's eye view around the Shogun. Handy for parking.
