Shogun the Barbarian

Shogun the BarbarianIt depends on your point of view; out-dated 4×4 or traditional workhorse? One thing not up for discussion is the Mitsubishi Shogun’s tough character and ability to get the job done. And with this brand new special edition, it’s quite a looker too! This is the new Shogun SWB Barbarian, which certainly looks great in this ‘stealth’ black option, complete with 20 inch black and silver Le Mans alloy wheels. Inside it has the L200 Barbarian-style leather seats and carbon inserts, DAB digital radio and alloy pedal kit. In manual form the Shogun SWB Barbarian will cost you £31,999, the auto version is £33,684. Mitsubishi is one of the few manufacturers still offering commercial spec versions and you can also get Barbarian ‘van’ options in manual and automatic for £33,449 and £35,134 respectively. All Shoguns come with a three-year/unlimited mileage warranty. OK, so it doesn’t have all the clever techno stuff of some of the latest SUVs, but for a tough workhorse that looks great, this new Shogun Barbarian ticks all the boxes for us.
