Mitsubishi to launch Shogun Sport SUV in UK in spring 2018

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 2018

Mitsubishi Motors has announced that the all-new Mitsubishi Shogun Sport will go on sale in the UK early in 2018.

The seven-seat Shogun Sport will be the second major model launch for the brand next year in the UK, following the arrival of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in January.

It will add to the manufacturer’s SUV offering, complementing the existing ASX, Outlander, L200 and Shogun models together with the forthcoming Eclipse Cross.

Power is provided by a 2.4-litre diesel engine, which produces 180PS and maximum torque of 430Nm at only 2,500rpm, mated to an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission and driving through the Super Select II all-wheel drive system.

Standard specification also includes hill descent control, trailer start assist (TSA), hill start assist (HSA) and a dedicated off-road mode, which will allow a choice of driving modes that can be selected to suit differing types of terrain.

Two versions will be available from launch. Both will feature leather upholstery, keyless entry with push-button start, LED daytime running lights and the Mitsubishi Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA) system which allows users to connect to apps or other features of their Apple or Android smartphone through the touchscreen or via voice control.

The range-topping derivative adds further luxury with heated front seats and  advanced safety features, including forward collision mitigation, which uses radars in the front grille to judge whether there is risk of a collision with the vehicle in front, blind spot warning and multi-around monitor system that employs cameras at the front, rear and in the door mirrors to display a bird’s eye view around the Shogun Sport.

UK pricing and full specification details will be announced closer to launch.
