Pros & cons


Impressive off-road ability, well built cabin, generous standard equipment


Crude compared to many offroaders, lacks interior refinement, noisy engine

The Shogun is almost recognised as a brand in its own right and has been one of the stalwarts of the large 4×4 sector.

For 2007 there was a (mostly) new model, bringing with it the most significant changes to the car since 2000. Still offered in compact three-door and roomy five-door versions the Shogun gains major updates to the interior, a revised diesel engine and improved safety.

However, Mitsubishi has upgraded the Shogun conscious of the fact that plenty of customers still want a vehicle that is very capable off road – and as before it’s virtually unstoppable on rough terrain.

Impressive off-road

Whether you opt for the shorter wheelbase three-door model or the full-size five door version, the Mitsubishi Shogun is an impressive off-road machine. It comes with an equally impressive heritage of dirt-defying ability, so it’s perhaps no shocker the Shogun is so good at tackling tough countryside with an easy stride.

With four-wheel drive and a low-ratio transfer gearbox, the Shogun is adept on any road or track you can point it down, though its size does mean it’s not quite as agile off-road as a Suzuki Jimny. However, the upside to this is you can take more people and luggage in the Shogun, with the five-door model offering seven seats and a large amount of cargo space.
