Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

While the high driving position offers a great view, the driver's seat is a little lacking in support. However, the driving environment has been transformed into something far more modern looking than the previous version of the Shogun. Most of the controls are marked clearly and easy to use. Visibility is pretty good for such a large car and models chosen with satellite navigation also have a rear-facing camera to aid reversing.

Mitsubishi has also changed the position of the tailgate-mounted spare wheel, setting it lower to improve both visibility and the car's centre of gravity.

Air conditioning and electric windows are standard, helping make Mitsubishi Shogun comfort good, but while the interior is roomy on five-door versions you do feel perched on top of the seats rather than sitting in them. The four-cylinder diesel engine is still rather noisy, despite improvements over the previous version of the engine, and with its bluff shape, the Shogun also generates its fair share of wind noise at speed.
