New Shogun hits the showrooms

The 2012 Mitsubishi Shogun

The new Shogun features four model variants.

MITSUBISHI is rolling out its new Shogun models into dealers’ showrooms.
Nothing startlingly new, it’s a case of if it ain’t broke… and represents the latest evolution of the Japanese carmaker’s classic off-roader.
The Shogun has achieved almost legendary status with its ability to go just about anywhere and with its bold, chunky style and looks.
And it’s the styling which attracts many buyers to the Shogun. It stands out from the crowd thanks to its bold front grille, upright windscreen, flared arches and the rear-mounted spare — the stylng features which make it look the part of a go-anywhere chariot.
The turbo diesel engine is now Euro V compliant and there is a choice of either five-door long wheelbase or three-door short wheelbase variants.
Apart from the number of doors, buyers will have a choice of four models — the familiar Warrior and SG2, SG3 and SG4 offerings.
Buyers can expect the usual array of safety equipment and luxury fittings. All models will feature new 18in alloy wheels.
It’s toughness and solidity make it a fitting workhorse or class act on the sports field, but it also comes with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty and pan-European roadside assistance package.
And, as you want it to be out there, not in the workshop, service intervals on all models are 9,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. The Mitsubishi Service Plan, which covers the first three services, is available for £750.
Prices range from £29,499 for the entry level SG2 model, rising to £40,999 for the top spec SG4.
