Mitsubishi Shogun Black

The Mitsubishi Shogun black features exterior styling tweaks including satin paint

Mitsubishi has announced a new special edition Shogun Black with a distinctive exterior styling package.

Based on the existing long wheelbase SG4 range-topping model, the Mitsubishi Shogun Black is powered by a 3.2-litre turbodiesel and comes very well equipped.

Mitsubishi Shogun Black: exterior styling upgrade

Helping this new special edition stand out is a new satin black styling package.

The roof, rear spoiler, door mirrors, grllle and headlamp bezels, fog light surrounds, door handles and side steps are all finished in this flat black colour – and the look is completed by a set of massive 20-inch alloy wheels, also satin black.

Matched to a range of contrasting main body colours – including a metallic black, for that subtle rock and roll look – the Shogun Black also benefits from the latest version of Mitsubishi’s 3.2-litre V6 Di-D turbodiesel.

With 197bhp and no less than 325lb ft of torque this has enough pulling power to tow up to 3,500kg. But even with a best-in-class emissions claim you’re still looking at 224g/km CO2, meaning annual car tax costs of £260, and no better than 33.2mpg combined.

Stacks of standard kit

Still, since the Shogun Black is based on the range-topping SG4 model you do get plenty of kit for your cash.

Standard equipment includes satellite navigation, reversing camera, iPod connection, stability control, automatic lights and wipers, and a colour-coded spare wheel cover, while the also standard leather upholstery, instrument illumination and some of the interior trimmings have recently been upgraded.

The Mitsubishi Shogun Black is priced from £41,999 – £1,000 more than the SG4. A fixed priced servicing plan is available for £750, which covers the cost of the first three services, while metallic paint will set you back an extra £540.
