The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Commercial has been named 4x4 Light Commercial Vehicle of the Year 2019 by the influential commercial vehicle title What Van? during a presentation ceremony at The Brewery in central London.
The What Van? Awards, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, consists of 21 categories split between commercial vehicles, industry suppliers and reader-voted awards. All of the What Van? Awards recognise the very best vehicles, companies and individuals in the light commercial vehicle sector.
James Dallas, Editor, What Van? Said, “The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport offers great off-road abilities, paired with comfortable on-road manners that come close to matching more expensive SUVs. This is an impressive new commercial vehicle package for off-the-beaten-track operators to consider.”
Toby Marshall, Sales & Marketing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: “We are delighted that the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Commercial has won this prestigious award from the experts at What Van? It confirms our belief that its phenomenal 4WD performance and the ability to carry a standard pallet in the rear of the vehicle, combined with its advanced safety systems and high standard specification, make it an unbeatable proposition for anyone seeking a true, go-anywhere commercial vehicle in 2019.”
The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport Commercial is powered by a 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine with an advanced drivetrain comprising an eight-speed automatic transmission and Super Select 4WD system with lockable centre and rear differentials, a low range transfer case and various terrain settings such as sand, gravel, mud/snow and rock, plus hill descent control. The Shogun Sport Commercial also has a towing capacity of up to 3.1 tonnes (braked) and a wading depth of 700mm.
