Crude driving manners

The Mitsubishi Shogun was never the most succinct or refined car to drive when it was launched in 2007, so not that some years have passed it has fallen further down the pecking order of large SUVs. A Land Rover Discovery is much more at home on the public highway than the Shogun, with the Mitsubishi bucking and weaving over bumps and lumps. There’s less body lean in corners than the previous Shogun, but it’s still a roly-poly performer in the corners.

The 3.2-litre engine works hard but cannot quite make the Shogun feel nippy or fully able to commit to overtaking slower traffic. It’s also noisy compared to the likes of the Discovery’s V6 turbodiesel engine.
