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.

Running costs

Very durable, but parts and servicing are expensive and necessary to maintain. Diesels get 25mpg, whilst V6s can dip into the teens if you're heavy footed. Insurance is quite high too. Luckily it won't lose you much money in terms of depreciation.
