Mitsubishi Shogun SUV 2010 on(4 reviews)
A proper 4x4
DaveF | 21st October '17
I have driven and owned various 4x4’s over 20yrs and the Shogun which I have owned two, is the only one that has met all my requirements and expectations time and time again. It’s not the most modern of designs but it is a time tested classic one, a 4x4 with cast iron reliability and excellent off road capabilities.
In fact if you’re looking for a proper no nonsense 4x4 which will stand the test of time then this could be the car for you, it is not however a soft “soccer mom” SUV. It rides well but hasn’t the refinement of a modern SUV or the modern styling most owners want, however it has a road presence all of it’s own from it’s shear size and renowned 4x4 and towing capabilities.
All said and done it’s a proper 4x4…which unfortunately today, are few and far between, especially in this price bracket.
Would I buy another…yes.
Mitsubishi hasn’t needed to change the Shogun as they got it right first time, and why change a classic design.

Had 2 of these over the years as well as many 'prestige' cars and 4x4s and honestly believe this beats em all. If I had to pick a car for the apocalypse this would be it! Reliable as they come and strong as an ox. Had an x5 3.0d which took in £60 a week diesel. This is exact same but better work horse. Highly recommend the Shogun.
Shogun LWB SG2 Manual, Very accomplished car, great tow vehicle.

I've owned the Shogun for a year now. I've had no issues and have really grown to admire this much under rated car.
We toured France for 6 weeks last summer, amazing amount of space and we packed it full!! The ride can be a little firm when empty and just the driver but it really comes into its own when loaded up with a full tank of fuel and some kit, it combines good on road handling and comfortable ride and seats.
I can get 35mpg pottering across Southern France on A type roads but the general figure is about 30-32mpg which for a full sizes 4x4 is amazing.
It's a great tow vehicle too, plenty of torque and you can power past HGVs on the motorway completely unaffected by wind turbulence on the van, our van weights only 1.2 tons and you really don't notice it's behind.
The manual gearbox was a bit notchy into 2nd when new but a year on it has settled in well and is smooth through all gears, most people seem to buy the autos but I wanted a manual which I'm pleased with.
The steering appears, on first drive, to be quite slow lock to lock, you get used to this very quickly and the advantage is that it's easy to keep in a line on faster roads as a small movement in the steering doesn't send the car of track much.
Value for money I think has been excellent, I paid significantly less than it would have taken to purchase a VW Tiguan 4 motion to about the same spec, the Shogun has so much more space.
Don't believe all you read from the so called motoring press, this is a great car and value for money is fantastic, a Discovery would be about 12k more and I didn't want all those complicated electronic air suspension future problems.
NEW SHOGUN DIAMOND

I HAVE HAD 4 SHOGUNS OVER THE YEARS. THE LATEST 2010 MODEL WITH UPGRADED ENGINE IS THE BEST. I HAVE ACHIEVED 35 MPG ON A RUN , THE ENGINE IS QUIETER AND THE BHP HAS INCREASED. SPACE IS HUGE IN THE BOOT AND CABIN. ALSO YOU ARE NOT IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE ALL THE TIME WHICH SAVES ON TYRE WEAR ETC.
