Mitsubishi Adds SWB Barbarian To Shogun Line-Up
2014 Mitsubishi Shogun SWB Barbarian is the latest addition to the Shogun line-up. The SWB in the name of the car stands for short wheel base. The Barbarian edition is an example of the progressive evolution of company's classic off-roading design philosophy. In addition, the vehicle combines four-wheel drive go-anywhere ability with bold and muscular styling. The Shogun has unique styling cues and it is instantly recognizable by its aggressive front grille. The latter incorporates a short front overhang, upright windscreen, strong high flanks, flared wheel-arches and rear-mounted spare wheel.
SWB Barbarian sits above the Shogun Warrior and includes additional features. It runs on 20" gloss black / silver dual colour Le Mans alloy wheels, and can be ordered in one of the following four exterior colors: the metallic Eiger Grey and Cool Silver, the pearlescent Black Pearl and the solid Frost White.
Inside, the new derivative includes L200 Barbarian style leather interior with carbon inserts, DAB digital radio, colour coded spare wheel cover and alloy pedal kit.
