Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin (00-05) - Review

When it comes to the rough stuff, the multipurpose Shogun Pinin is a real RAV4 rival with proper 4x4 hardware including a low-ratio gearbox and a diff lock. It’s not bad on-road either; small enough to weave through urban congestion, with a reasonably composed ride and good all-round visibility, but is left wanting at higher speeds.

When it comes to the rough stuff, the multipurpose Shogun Pinin is a real RAV4 rival with proper 4x4 hardware including a low-ratio gearbox and a diff lock. It’s not bad on-road either; small enough to weave through urban congestion, with a reasonably composed ride and good all-round visibility, but is left wanting at higher speeds. The Pinin tag refers to Pininfarina; the Italian design house that penned the shape, giving it a robust interior and chunky looks, despite the compact shape.

What owners say...

 Easy access to front seats. High driving position. Mine is the 3 door version, so very limited boot space unless the rear seats are folded.

 Great for lugging things around including people and great for nipping around town (London/Brighton) due to its short wheelbase

 Fantastic in the narrow country lanes and easy to drive around town. Easy to park. Excellent for putting rubbish in to take to the tip.
