Practicality & boot space Rating

3.0 out of 5

If you’re buying a car of this size then space is likely to be a priority and the Shogun Sport isn’t lacking in this regard; the third row of seats for the sixth and seventh passengers is usable rather than an afterthought. However, as in so many other areas, there are other cars in the same class that trump the Shogun Sport in this category, offering more interior space and boot capacity.

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport interior space and storage

The Shogun Sport is a seven-seat SUV but the sixth and seventh seats haven’t just been crowbarred in to fit the bill – there’s more than enough room on the third row for two small adults.

Boot space

Boot space with five seats in place stands at 503 litres, but fold the second row flat and you free up 1,488 litres. The space on offer isn’t small by any means, but compare it to direct rivals and it becomes obvious you can do better from a car in this class. The Kia Sorento offers 605 and 1,662 litres respectively, the Nissan X-Trail 565 and 1,996, and the Skoda Kodiaq 720 and 2,005 litres.


The Shogun Sport can tow a braked trailer weighing up to 3,100kg. The automatic gearbox has an ‘advanced adaptive control system’ that includes an ‘Uphill Control’ setting that optimises gear changes for hills and towing.
