The SVP Concept is powered by the same turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder diesel engine as the regular model, producing 179bhp and 430Nm of torque.

Performance is fed through an eight-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels via a centre and rear locking differential and, to assist off-road, drivers get four selectable drive modes and hill-descent control.

Other additions include a set of unique exterior decals and red accents on the alloy wheels and grille. Inside, the Shogun Sport SVP Concept gets a revised set of front and rear seats with more substantial side bolstering and red LED mood lighting. Pricing for the production version Mitsubishi’s SVP package will be announced closer to its release date.
