Which used Mitsubishi Shogun 4x4 should I buy?
Go for the diesel, and not just because the 21mpg economy of the V6 is frightening. The diesel makes for a much easier drive, thanks to its stronger pulling power at low revs. For a car that could spend a lot of time off-road, towing or carrying heavy loads, that's vital.
Three- and five-door versions can swallow an awful lot, but the extra versatility of the larger car - it has a third row of seats that flips up from the boot floor as well as the two extra doors - makes it the best choice.
As for trims, this is an expensive car, so it's best to stick with the most basic - Classic. Besides, it's hardly Spartan: it has alloys, air-con and a full complement of safety kit. Equippe, Elegance and Warrior add things such as climate control, an electric sunroof and leather upholstery, but this just raises the already expensive price.
