Built to deal with demanding terrain, the ever popular Mitsubishi Shogun Sport sees an all-new creation going on sale early next year in the UK.
The Shogun Sport is the second big launch for Mitsubishi after the arrival of its Eclipse Cross in January.
Along with the Eclipse Cross, the new Shogun Sport joins the Outlander, ASX and L200 to offer an impressive SUV range from the manufacturer for buyers.
The seven-seater has an advanced drivetrain to enable excellent off-road performances so it is following in the footsteps of its previous models with its go anywhere attitude.
Engine for the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport
The engine for the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport is a 2.4 litre diesel unit producing 180 bhp and producing torque of 430Nm. There’s also a new eight speed automatic transmission which is coupled to the lightweight engine.
Handling is boosted by the all-wheel drive system, it’s called Super Select II, with standard equipment including hill descent control, hill start assist and trailer start assist.
There are also a range of driving modes to suit the different types of terrain including a dedicated off-road mode.

From launch, there will be two high spec versions available but both will have leather upholstery, LED daytime running lights and keyless entry.
