Updated Mitsubishi Shogun revealed
Facelifted Mitsubishi Shogun SUV revealed, with a tweaked design and more equipment
The Mitsubishi Shogun has been given a light facelift in an attempt to rejuvenate sales of the company’s largest SUV.
The changes are subtle, but from the outside you’ll notice a revised front bumper and grille, as well as bright LED daytime running lights. Mitsubishi says the tough 4x4 retains its go-anywhere ability and bold styling, characterised by its upright windscreen, flared wheelarches and boot-mounted spare wheel.
Available with either three or five doors, and in short or long-wheelbase form, the Shogun comes in a variety of generous specification levels. The three-door is available in Warrior or Barbarian trim, with all models featuring xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights and styling changes to the front. Inside, there’s a USB port for MP3 players, piano-black trim and silver accents on the central air vents.
A tyre-pressure monitoring system is also standard, while models with the automatic gearbox benefit from improved sound deadening for better high-speed refinement. The three-door Warrior model costs from £29,369, while the more expensive Barbarian is priced from £31,999.
Choose the Mitsubishi Shogun SG2 model (only available as a larger five-door) and you’ll get rear air-conditioning vents thrown in. Prices start at just £28,599, while the automatic gearbox costs £1,685 more, with prices starting from £30,284.
Range-topping Mitsubishi Shogun SG3 and SG4 models come with the longest list of standard equipment. This includes automatic high-beam activation, black leather upholstery and new dashboard trim options. The SG3 costs £33,799, while the SG4 will set you back £36,799. Both models undercut the basic Land Rover Discovery by nearly £5,000.
All models come with a choice of six paint finishes, as well as a three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty. Mitsubishi offers fixed-price servicing, covering the first three scheduled services for £975.
