New Shogun gets a bolder front grille

Mitsubishi’s new 2012 Shogun arrives in the UK this week. 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. Like its predecessor, the Mitsubishi Shogun is immediately distinguished by its redesigned bold front grille - incorporating a short front overhang, upright windscreen, strong high flanks, flared wheel-arches and rear-mounted spare wheel.

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-inch alloy wheels.
