What Car? says

1 out of 5 stars

For The Sport is spacious and, as the Shogun name implies, it's impressive off-road

Against It's based on a pick-up truck, and it shows it in its poor drive and limited safety equipment

Verdict It can't hide its commercial vehicle origins, and it's definitely at its best off-road

Go for… 2.5 TD Classic

Avoid… 3.0 V6 Elegance

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 4x4
  • 1. For such a big car, space is quite tight in the front. And there's no reach adjustment on the steering wheel
  • 2. The spacious boot is spoilt by a high sill, which makes loading awkward
  • 3. If the car is used for towing regularly, the steering, suspension and transmission can suffer
  • 4. Owners' most common complaints centre on the poor ride comfort and lack of refinement
  • 5. There's plenty of head- and legroom in the back
