Mitsubishi Shogun Sport (2018–)
Mitsubishi unveiled the Shogun Sport for the UK
Power is provided by a lightweight 2.4-litre diesel engine, which produces 180PS and maximum torque of 430Nm at 2500rpm, mated to an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission and driving through the Super Select II all-wheel drive system.
The standard specification includes Hill Descent Control, Trailer Start Assist (TSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and a dedicated off-road mode, which will allow a choice of driving modes that can be selected to suit differing types of terrain.
Inside, there is space for up to seven people with up to 1488 litres of carrying space with the rear seat folded.
Two high-specification versions are available from launch. Both will feature leather upholstery, keyless entry with push-button start, LED daytime running lights and the Mitsubishi Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA) system which allows users to connect to apps or other features of their Apple or Android smartphone through the touchscreen or via voice control.
The range-topping derivative adds further luxury with heated front seats and Mitsubishi’s most advanced safety features, including Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), which uses radars in the front grille to judge whether there is risk of a collision with the vehicle in front, Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Multi-around Monitor System (MMS) that employs cameras at the front, rear and in the door mirrors to display a bird’s eye view around the Shogun Sport.
Mitsubishi Shogun Sport priced from £36,905
The seven-seat Shogun Sport effectively replaced the Shogun in the Mitsubishi range and is offered with a choice of two extensively-equipped trim levels: Shogun Sport 3 and Shogun Sport 4.
Both versions are equipped with an all-aluminium, 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine that produces 181PS and 430Nm of torque combined with Mitsubishi Motors’ advanced Super Select II all-wheel drive system and an all-new, eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Super Select II all-wheel drive system allows the driver to switch seamlessly between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive on all terrains. On tarmac, this means that drivers enjoy optimum efficiency in two-wheel drive mode, but can switch to four-wheel drive for extra stability when towing or in slippery driving conditions.
The standard specification also includes Hill Descent Control, Trailer Start Assist (TSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and a dedicated off-road mode, ensuring Shogun Sport delivers the outstanding all-terrain, all-purpose performance for which the brand is globally renowned.
Shogun Sport combines space for up to seven people with practicality, offering up to 1488 litres with the rear seat folded. The entry-level Shogun Sport 3 starts from £37,775 and includes such features as leather upholstery; electrically-adjustable front seats; power folding mirrors; LED headlamps, tail lamps and DRLs; dual-zone climate control; reversing camera with rear parking sensors; keyless entry with push-button start; privacy glass and automatic headlamps and wipers.
Priced from £39,775, the Shogun Sport 4 adds heated front seats; the Mitsubishi Power Sound System with additional tweeters and a 510W amplifier; headlamp washers and Mitsubishi Motors’ most advanced safety and driver assistance systems including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), which uses radars in the front grille to judge whether there is risk of a collision with the vehicle in front, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), a 360˚ view camera and the Ultrasonic Mis-Acceleration Mitigation System (UMS) which utilises front parking sensors to halt any accidental sudden acceleration when any obstacles are detected nearby.
