For The Mitsubishi Shogun is great off-road and feels robustly built. It seats up to seven and is well equipped, but it may be the Tonka Toy looks that really appeal.
Against Refinement and comfort are poor, and although the diesel engine has plenty of pulling power, it can still struggle with the weight of the car.
What Car? says
The Mitsubishi Shogun looks good, is well specified and is a proper off-roader. Unfortunately, it's far less impressive on-road, where it feels much cruder than most rival 4x4s.

The Mitsubishi Shogun is very much an old-school 4x4, in that it is designed as an off-roader. In other words, if you want to venture away from Tarmac, it could be just what you want; but; if your idea of off-road is the supermarket car park, it probably isn't.
There's just one engine in the range, and can be had with both manual and automatic gearboxes. The most basic trim is the one we’d recommend, because it’s the most affordable Shogun and it comes with a good amount of standard kit.
Also, consider Mitsubishi’s Service Plan that will cover all the scheduled services required throughout the first three years of a new car’s life, ensuring that they are performed by Mitsubishi-trained technicians, using genuine Mitsubishi parts. You can also include the cost of the Service Plan in your finance, and the plan can be transferred to a new owner if you sell your vehicle.
