3.5 out of 5

Like many tough off-road SUVs, the Mitsubishi Shogun doesn’t prioritise fuel economy. The car’s age compared to newer rivals like the Toyota Land Cruiser or Land Rover Discovery is most obvious when you compare their fuel efficiency.

Mitsubishi Shogun MPG & CO2

The Shogun only has one engine, but the different bodystyles available can affect the fuel economy and emissions figures. No model is particularly cheap to run, though. Because of its added weight and length, the five-door model returns poorer economy than the shorter three-door model.

The more fuel-efficient three-door model has an economy figure of 31.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 238g/km, so road tax here is £500 a year. The five-door, seven-seat Shogun returns just 30.4mpg, while CO2 emissions of 245g/km will also see you paying £500 a year in road tax. Mitsubishi also sells the Shogun as a commercial vehicle and all versions of this – whether three or five-door – attract the flat light goods vehicle tax rate of £230 a year.

Insurance group

Insurance costs may be a bugbear for owners, as the Shogun’s insurance groups range from 30 to 37.

Warranty

New Shogun models have a five-year/62,500-mile warranty as standard, which is more generous than many manufacturers’ three-year guarantees.

Servicing

The Shogun’s service schedule is every year or every 12,500 miles – whichever comes first. Fixed-price servicing is offered for the Shogun and this should rein in running costs a bit.
