The New Mitsubishi L200 Sets the Pace
Surpassing all of it’s competitors to the award, the L200 has set the benchmark that others must attempt to match. With over 30 years in the sector, Mitsubishi is used to setting the pace. With the fifth generation L200, Mitsubishi has retained its forthright approach, available first in double-cab and later in club and single-cab formats.
The series 5 L200 is more streamlined and less bulky than the other pickups around and has upped its game in terms of driving refinement, manoeuvrability, emissions and fuel efficiency. Mitsubishi’s UK boss Lance Bradley stated “It’s almost impossible to make the heavy trucks of our competitors as efficient as the L200” adding that the fuel economy is a comfortable 11% better than its competitors at 42.8mpg.
The New L200 is Impressive and Versatile
Mitsubishi introduced the ground-breaking L200 series 4 in 2006 and was awarded What Van? Pick Up of the Year Award for six consecutive years until 2012 and has continued to impress throughout the years. The styling of the new L200 has not made the radical leap which took place between the third and fourth series, however still remains the sleekest pick-up on the market featuring a selection of new technology both inside and out.
The L200 Series 5 is an impressive and versatile off-road performer and includes two 4WD systems offering high and low ratio settings for off-road terrain. The cabin offers plenty of head and shoulder room and the steering column is adjustable for rake and reach. Additional features include a storage space underneath the rear bench seat, a hook on the front seat for shopping bags and space for a phone or wallet in the centre console.
Pick Up of the Year
As well as the LCV of the year, the Mitsubishi L200 has also been awarded the Pick Up of the Year title further highlighting the excellence of this vehicle. The sophisticated new model features versatile loading capacities, a spacious and comfortable cabin as well as being extremely competent both on and off the road making it an extremely worthy winner.
