New Shogun aimed at user-choosers

MITSUBISHI'S next-generation Shogun will be a higher-value package for user-choosers when it is launched next year. The Japanese company's UK importer is aiming to market the restyled and technically advanced range at no increase in prices.

Denis Murphy, Colt Car Co acting managing director, told Fleet NewsNet: 'Businessmen who like to drive off-road have made the Shogun a remarkable success in the past and we're determined to maintain its position as the second best-selling heavyweight 4x4 in Britain.

With a radical new styling theme, the new Shogun was launched to Japanese buyers with a 3.2-litre four-cylinder direct-injection diesel engine, followed last month by a 3.5-litre petrol GDI-powered model. European versions will debut at the Geneva Motor Show before the Shogun is launched in May at expected prices of £25,000 to £40,000.
