Following the UK launch of the new Eclipse Cross in January, Mitsubishi's will be releasing their second major model this coming Spring – the Shogun Sport.
Joining a brand with a history of tough, terrain conquering adventures, the new Shogun Sport will be a family oriented seven-seater, utilising the advance drivetrain to mirror the iconic, go-anywhere Shogun.
Power will be provided by a lightweight 2.4-litre diesel engine which produces 180hp and maximum torque of 430Nm at only 2,500rpm. It'll be paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission and driving through Mitsubishi's own SuperSelect2 all-wheel drive system. Standard kit will include hill descent control, trailer start assist, hill start assist and a dedicated off-road mode, which will allow a choice of driving modes to suit differing types of terrain.
Two trim versions will be available from launch but both will feature leather upholstery, keyless entry with push-button start, LED daytime running lights and an infotainment system that connects apps or other features of their Apple or Android smartphone through the touchscreen or via voice control.
The range-topping derivative will add heated front seats and safety features such as radar-based forward collision mitigation, blind spot warning and a 360-degree monitor system to display a bird's eye view around the vehicle.
