The Shogun was a serious Japanese competitor to the Range Rover, earning respect for its longevity (it was launched back in 1983), off-road ability and reliability. And before the advent of the X5 and its ilk, was one of the best serious off-roaders to drive on normal roads.

Comfort

Short wheelbase models are rather cramped for legroom in the rear - no such problems with the long wheelbase - whilst headroom is good all round. Diamond pack models are luxuriously specced. Some of the interior materials look dated by today's standards, but most interiors are wearing well.

Practicality

Both long and short-wheel-base have more than enough boot space for most people's needs. Long-wheel-base model has a third row of seats as an alternative to big carrying space. Seats fold to allow farmer types to lug straw bails around and interior storage space is abundant too.

Behind the wheel

First class view with the sort of on-road stature that will mean you never feel intimidated by other road users. Interiors wear well, but the interior architecture is pretty dated. That means you may have to hunt for switches and the driving position could be better.
