What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Shogun is extremely capable off-road, and there's a choice of three- and five-door models

Against Many rivals are much better on Tarmac

Verdict It's a fantastic off-road workhorse or tow car, but it's definitely no motorway cruiser

Go for… Any diesel

Avoid… V6 petrols

Mitsubishi Shogun 4x4
  • 1. The suspension may need an overhaul and brake discs need replacing every 60,000 miles
  • 2. Shoguns remain tough as old boots, which is remarkable given the hard life many of them lead
  • 3. Among the reported problems are gearboxes that can fail after about 60,000 miles
  • 4. It’s huge inside - five-door versions even have seven seats – but the materials and trim look cheap and tacky
  • 5. The diesel makes for a much easier drive than the petrol V6, thanks to its stronger pulling power at low revs
