Used Mitsubishi Shogun Sport for sale
Before Mitsubishi pulled out of the UK, they concentrated predominantly on SUVs. And with commercial vehicles being somewhat agricultural to many consumers, the idea of an SUV-like commercial vehicle like that of the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Commercial seemed like an attractive prospect.
Better still, if you like Mitsubishi, there's plenty of choice, as joining the Shogun Sport Commercial is the Shogun Commercial and Outlander Commercial. More premium alternatives from Land Rover in the form of the Discovery Commercial or Defender Hard Top will appeal to those with a bigger budget, whilst the Dacia Duster Commercial appeals to those on a smaller one.
Highlights of a Mitsubishi Shogun Sport include:
- SUV-like driving experience
- SUV-like looks
- Doesn't stand out as much as a boxy van
- Capable off-road
- More refined than a regular commercial vehicle
Economy, Towing, and Performance
The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Commercial comes with a 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission along with four-wheel drive.
By modern standards, it's not amazing on fuel with circa 32mpg achievable, but for a large SUV-like vehicle it will all depend on your own expectations.
Overall performance is good, as this is essentially an SUV just turned into a van. It therefore drives like a car and is a lot more refined. It also happens to be pretty handy off-road thanks to its 'Super Select' four-wheel drive system.
Towing capability is capped at 750kg unbraked, as is the limit, with braked capability rising up to 3,100kg.
Bodystyles, Payload, and Capacity
As for bodystyles, there's just the single SUV-like option for the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Commercial, which essentially looks like the regular Shogun Sport SUV just with the rear windows blanked out. The load area is carpeted which is worth pointing out as this could be a bonus, or mean you'll have to invest in some protective measures depending on what you're going to be carrying.
As for the payload there's only the single rating, which comes in at 605kg.
Capacity is good, and is longer and taller than its Outlander Commercial sibling. Therefore, maximum load length comes in at 1,920mm, whilst the maximum load height is 1,040mm. Finally, the width between the wheel arches comes in at 1,000mm.
Interior, Technology, and Safety
Like that of an SUV, the interior is much nicer than what you'd usually find in a van, and in the Shogun Sport Commercial, standard kit is rather impressive.
Therefore, you'll find leather, heated seats, DAB, Bluetooth, 360-degree camera system, infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with dual-zone climate control. This is much more than you'd expect to find in an alternative van.
Safety kit is also impressive with many premium features, again more likely seen on SUVs, so you get autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, terrain control system, Trailer Sway Assist and four-wheel drive.
Is the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport right for me?
If you're after a decent used commercial vehicle, that is similar to that of an SUV, then the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport is a great model to consider.
Other offerings from Mitsubishi, such as the Outlander Commercial and Shogun Commercial offer similar SUV-like alternatives. As mentioned, the Land Rover Discovery Commercial and Land Rover Defender Hard Top will appeal to more premium buyers, whilst the Dacia Duster Commercial is ideal for those on a budget.
The offerings from Mitsubishi sit nicely in the middle of the SUV-like commercial vehicle segment.
