Cost & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Mitsubishi has a fantastic reliability record, so although we don’t have any specific data for the Shogun Sport, you can reasonably hope that there won’t be constant trips to the dealer. If you do have any trouble, the car comes with an excellent five-year or 62,500-mile warranty as standard.

The Shogun Sport is expensive, with all of its key rivals proving better and cheaper – apart from the equally disappointing Toyota Land Cruiser, which costs slightly more. And the Shogun Sport will be more expensive to run than its mainstream rivals, because the 2.4-litre diesel engine has very poor claimed fuel economy and CO2 emissions are extremely high.

There’s a good amount of standard kit, though, with 3 trim getting 18in alloy wheels, a leather interior, dual-zone climate control, LED lights, a reversing camera, parking sensors and hill descent control. But if you want some decent safety equipment, you have to move up to 4 trim, which gets heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, blindspot monitoring, automatic emergency braking and a 360deg camera. Because of these safety aids, we’d say 4 is worth the step up if you’re set on a Shogun Sport.

Verdict

Old-school inside and out, but not in a good way. Unless you’ll need its off-road ability regularly, you’re better off with its seven-seat rivals

  • Off-road ability
  • Seven seats as standard
  • Cheap-feeling interior
  • Expensive to buy and run
