Mitsubishi Shogun Sport (2018 – 2021)

Our unique Expert Rating Index combines scores from 30 of the top UK motoring websites to give you a definitive rating on every new car

Expert Rating

Summary


The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport is a seven-seat SUV that was the largest model in the Mitsubishi SUV family when the company decided to withdraw from the UK market in September 2021.

It is based on the popular L200 pick-up, which is reflected in it being more functional and less luxurious than the car-based crossovers from other brands.

The Shogun Sport received generally poor reviews from the UK motoring media through its short life on sale in the UK. As of May 2022, it has the unwanted distinction of being one of the lowest-rated cars we have analysed in our Expert Ratings index. At the time of Mitsubishi’s withdrawl, its Expert Rating of just 33% was better than just two other cars, both from within its own family – its smaller sibling, the Mitsubishi ASX, and the Mitsubishi Mirage.

The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport received praise for its off-road ability, towing ability and overall spaciousness, but was criticised for its poor on-road driving experience, poor fuel consumption and general lack of refinement.
