Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 32 - 33 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.
  • One engine on offer
  • Below average claimed average fuel economy
  • Reasonable servicing costs

The sole engine offering in the Shogun Sport achieves a claimed average fuel economy of 32.8mpg on the old NEDC fuel economy cycle - WLTP figures are still not available. Although not terrible, it’s below the average for this class and doesn’t bode well for potential fuel bills. 

Fixed-price servicing is available from Mitsubishi dealers and represents good value, along with the brand’s Value servicing packages for out-of-warranty vehicles (the standard warranty is five years/62,500 miles – whichever comes first).

Insurance groups are about average for this class of vehicle, coming in at 43D for the Shogun Sport 3 and 38D for the Shogun Sport 4 (owing to the latter’s extra safety equipment).

With CO2 emissions coming in at 227g/km, the Shogun Sport won’t be winning any eco-friendliness contests anytime soon. For comparison, the SsangYong Rexton manages 213g/km, the Toyota Land Cruiser 207g/km and the Kia Sorento 174g/km.

Reliability

  • Mitsubishi has an excellent reputation for reliability
  • Cabin feels solid and well-built
  • Generous five-year warranty

Mitsubishi has as hard-fought reputation for excellent reliability, so the Shogun Sport shouldn’t give you too many headaches when it comes to trustworthiness.

Although outright quality could be better, the cabin appeared solid and well put together, while the rest of the car coped well during a strenuous off-road course on the launch.
