Mitsubishi Shogun rivals
The Shogun was a serious Japanese competitor to the Range Rover, earning respect for its longevity (it was launched back in 1983), off-road ability and reliability. And before the advent of the X5 and its ilk, was one of the best serious off-roaders to drive on normal roads. Early cars were very utilitarian, but later models possess all the creature comforts you're likely to need.
The market has become flooded with Japanese imports badged Pajero. These often aren't to UK spec.
