2012 Mitsubishi Shogun


Mitsubishi Shogun is what they call the mighty Pajero in the British market.

The Japanese car maker released details of a refreshed model for the new year. The 2012 Shogun looks pretty the same, and is in fact basically the same vehicle as before, but it gets a few refreshing updates. It now comes with a Euro V compliant turbo diesel engine and offers a choice of either three door short-wheel base or five door long-wheel base versions.

As well as the three and five door options, Shogun buyers will have a choice of a four model line-up – the SG2, SG3, SG4 and the familiar Warrior which, in terms of specification will sit above the SG2. As always, the Shogun comes packed with an array of standard safety and luxury equipment. In addition to the re-designed front grille, all variants will benefit from new 18” alloy wheels.
