With a single engine and transmission option available, potential buyers of the Shogun Sport must do without the choice of petrol or a manual gearbox, limiting the SUV’s appeal to some.

The combination of the Shogun Sport’s weight, aerodynamics and engine efficiency means that fuel consumption and emissions also lag behind key rivals. Mitsubishi quotes an official CO2 figure of 227g/km and a combined consumption figure of 32.8mpg, considerably worse than the Skoda Kodiaq and still behind the more powerful Hyundai Santa Fe. With a fuel tank capacity of 68 litres the Shogun Sport has a theoretical range of 490 miles, somewhat below many competitor products that can offer close to 600 miles or more from a full tank.

In terms of VED costs the Shogun Sport is in band L, giving a first-year fee of £2,070 with a second year fee of £140. That is on a par with the Hyundai Santa Fe and Skoda Kodiaq despite the inferior CO2 figure. The emissions performance also means that it attracts a Benefit-in-Kind rating of 37%, which is more than these same rivals that benefit from a greater choice of engines and transmissions.

Insurance groups

Despite a single engine and transmission option, the Shogun Sport has two different insurance group ratings depending on the trim selected. The cheaper 3 model is in group 43 while the top-specification 4 model is in group 38, thanks to the additional safety systems that the latter model is fitted with. That compares favourably with the equivalent Hyundai Santa Fe which is rated in group 39 for the manual and 40 for the automatic models, but the Skoda Kodiaq is significantly cheaper thanks to a group 24 certification for the highest-rated model.

Depreciation

Depreciation of the Shogun Sport is relatively high and broadly in line with the rest of the Mitsubishi range. A retained value of approximately 41.4% after three years is slightly behind the Hyundai Santa Fe at 46.9% and 46.7% for the Skoda Kodiaq. The Shogun Sport is still a relatively new offering and does not have the same following that the old Shogun model enjoyed, hence relatively light demand for used examples.
