The Mitsubishi Shogun has a below average boot space (301 litres of luggage with the seats up).
This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.
Worth knowing, the Land Rover Discovery SUV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 6 large bags with its 889 litres.
Given a typical supermarket space, the Shogun is easy to park. (If you want the detail it will fill just just over three quarters of the bay). This is as narrow as cars in the 4x4 class get, and gives you the maximum door opening space.
If the pressure of street parking gets to you, then this is the car to buy. It is shorter than anything else in its class, giving you a healthy 158mm gap in the space to manoeuvre the car.
The fastest Mitsubishi Shogun from 0-60, is the 3.2L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 441 lbs/ft torque and 197 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 9.7 seconds.
The closest rival in its class is the Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2L diesel, which will beat your Mitsubishi Shogun to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.
The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2L diesel which has 441 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 3500kg comfortably.
You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
