The Mitsubishi Shogun gets an update and the new version is expected to provide more fuel efficiency and a more upmarket cabin. The new Shogun will arrive in showrooms this week.
At first glance, the new Shogun seems to be no different from its predecessor. The big changes though to the car is invisible to the naked eye because most of the updates were done on the vehicle’s engine. Improvements have also been done on the interior including the use of high quality cloth and leather for the upholstery, privacy glass and updated dash illuminations. These changes may make buyers consider getting a Shogun instead of a BMW or an Audi.
Like the old Shogun, then new model is also available in both long and short wheelbase versions and different trim levels. The most expensive SG4 model is expected to rival the Land Recovery Discovery, costing just a little less than £41,000.
More environmentally-conscious customers looking for a rugged and versatile vehicle will definitely fall in love with the Shogun’s Euro V compliant model that comes with a 3.2 liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that promise 207g/km of CO2 and 36.2mpg in manual SWB form.
The Shogun gets a facelift as well. Improvements in the exterior of the car include color coded front bumpers, chrome grille and new 12 spoke 10-inch alloy wheels.
The Shogun is an excellent car. As a proof, seven out of ten Shogun owners have owned Shoguns in the past. This is why there is so much pressure for Mitsubishi to come up with improvements worthy of the Shogun name while still maintaining the ruggedness and reliability that users have grown to love.
Prices of the new Shogun starts at £29,499 for the three door in base spec SG2 guise and goes up to £40,999 for the LWB SG4.
