What's the used Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 4x4 like?

To be harsh, the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport is most like a pick-up truck. It's effectively a renamed version of the Challenger it replaced, and both have their roots in a commercial vehicle.

There's little safety and security kit, and the unsettled ride feels every ripple in the Tarmac. That stiff suspension means that, over mid-corner bumps, the rear end can skip out of line all too easily, which is difficult to correct thanks to the slow steering.

A Nissan X-Trail will be far better on-road, but if you need an off-road workhorse, a Shogun Sport will suit you down to the - muddy - ground.

Oddly for such a big car, space is quite tight in the front, and you notice the lack of reach adjustment on the steering wheel. There's plenty of head- and legroom in the back, though, as well as a spacious boot that's spoilt only by a high sill.
