Mitsubishi Shogun Sport SVP: A Montero Sport with bad attitude

Updated Apr 12, 2023 | Same topic: Most Updated Car Concept

Mitsubishi thinks that the Montero Sport is too soft. Now you can live your Dakkar Rally fantasies with the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport SVP!

Have you ever looked at the current generation Montero Sport and thought to yourself; "this car looks too soft". Well, Mitsubishi apparently thought so and unveiled the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport SVP (that's Montero Sport for us in the Philippine Market). 

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport SVP the look

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport SVP: One bad grocery-getter

1. Mitsubishi Shogun Sports SVP: More than an off-road Monster

Unveiled at this year's UK Commercial Vehicle show in Birmingham, UK, this Montero Sport on steroids concept wowed the crowd and got people reaching out for their checkbooks.

Everyone knows of that the current Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2019 already is capable off-roader and people mover, Mitsubishi felt the need to flex its long-stagnant muscle and applied their years of extensive experience in the off-road game giving us this gem of a behemoth.

Underneath the car, the suspension has been upgraded to Koni shocks and lift kits from Walkinshaw. The wheel arches have been extended and beefed up as well to accommodate the wider track, care of that 18-inch predator off road mags and Pirelli off-road rated tires.

Glad to see Mitsubishi not averse to thick rear ends

You won’t find yourself wanting, whenever you encounter rough terrain or out infamous Manila floods with the raised suspension height. You can still bring grandma along with the ride with those rugged, high-clearance step-boards colored in a kind of onyx black to match the car's macho appeal.

Just remember to always be a gentleman if you need to help them out hopping into your beast of a machine.

Of course, with great suspension upgrades, come great go-fast bits. I mean how else will you let everyone know that you don’t have the run of the mill Montero Sport?

We’ve already discussed the wheel-arch extensions that widen the Montero Sports already massive track. You also have SHOGUN SPORT branding and decals all around the car as if Mitsubishi were afraid that you would mistake this to be an Xpander. The Horror…

PIAA rated front fog lamps adorn the front grill that showcases Mitsubishi's current design language, the imposing presence offered y the Dynamic Shield design holds its own against the current crop of butched-up rides.

These lights then work in tandem with the roof mounted LED Lightbar, these are very powerful lighting options for a car that would most likely e a garage queen, more than an off-road monster. You can also notice all the red accents that surround the car extending all the way to the interior upholstery for the vehicle.

2. Mitsubishi Shogun Sports SVP: Performance

According to the latest car news, powering the vehicle is the same 2.4-liter turbo-diesel engine producing 180 hp and an insane 430Nm of torque found in the regular Montero Sport.

These figures, albeit impressive are not class leading, but what makes this stand out is Mitsubishi’s advanced 8-speed automatic transmission and Super Select 4WD system. This enables the driver to select the best possible setting for any type of road situation.

There is a catch in all this though. This is merely a proof of concept vehicle. It does show that Mitsubishi is willing to flex its’ 4WD chops any time of the day.

With the advent of performance versions of trucks and SUVs, Mitsubishi cannot have themselves left behind and this is their immediate response. Hopefully, Mitsubishi Philipines would ring this rugged beauty to our shores. I wouldn't hold my breath for a second thought.
