Mitsubishi Shogun Sport on sale at £37.7K

 

The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport will go on UK sale in July at prices starting from £37,775.

The Shogun Sport currently sells in Asia as the Pajero Sport, and Mitsubishi hopes it will become one of its best-sellers in the UK, capitalising on the current popularity of SUVs among UK buyers.

Adding the Sport to the existing Shogun, the Outlander and the smaller ASX, and with the L200 pick-up also in the line-up and a new Eclipse Sport model set for launch later in 2018, the brand believes it will offer the widest range of 4×4 models in the market.

The Shogun Sport is a large seven-seat SUV aimed at the traditional end of the market, with full off-road ability. Available only with a 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine of 181hp, it is fitted with Mitsubishi’s Super Select II all-wheel-drive system with a rear differential lock, and a terrain control system with four standard settings – gravel, mud/snow, sand and rock.

New eight-speed auto

   

Launching with the model is a new eight-speed automatic transmission. This is said by Mitsubishi to improve fuel economy and emissions, while it includes a Sport mode manual override allowing the driver to change gear with shift paddles on the steering wheel or with the lever. When off-road in sand or rock mode the transmission prevents the driver from unintentionally shifting up a gear to ensure all torque required is available.

The car will launch in two variants. The £37,775 price tag buys the Shogun Sport 3, highlights of its specification including leather upholstery, electric seats, a reversing camera with parking sensors, keyless operation and smartphone compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Shogun Sport 4, costing an extra £2,000, adds a number of extras, particularly to the safety package. This gains adaptive cruise, control, a forward collision airing with autonomous braking, blind-spot warning and a 360-degree camera. It also includes an Ultrasonic mis-acceleration Mitigation System – this reduces the chance and severity of hitting obstacles when the driver mistakenly presses the accelerator when stationary or at speeds of up to 6mph.

Other additions to the Shogun Sport 4 include heated front seats, an upgraded audio system and headlamp washers.
