Mitsubishi L200 Wins Best Pick-Up - Auto Express Awards 2016

Impressive fuel economy of 42.8mpg and 173g/km CO2 emissions mean the L200 will be great for businesses, but with the level of equipment on the top-spec Barbarian model, it’s perfectly usable as family transport, too. Best of all, it’s cheaper than its main rivals.

The Mitsubishi L200 is the 2016 Auto Express Pick-Up of the Year

Despite challenges from new workhorses like the Nissan Navara and Ford Ranger, the Mitsubishi L200 retains its crown in 2016 as Auto Express Best Pick-up.

Its robust underpinnings will take just about anything you can throw at a working vehicle, but the Mitsubishi is more car-like to drive than its rivals, with superior refinement helping improve comfort.

There are plenty of car-like features to use, reinforcing the L200’s civilised feel. DAB radio, sat-nav, a rear-view camera, cruise control and keyless go are available, while seven airbags and lane departure warning give it strong safety credentials for a pick-up. Flexibility and carrying capacity are arguably more important for these working vehicles. The L200 stands up to the challenge with a maximum payload of 1,050kg and a towing limit of 3,100kg, making it a versatile truck.

Flexible and Versatile

The 2.4-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel model weighs only 1,860kg and delivers 178bhp and 430Nm of torque, so acceleration is decent – the L200 covers 0-62mph in 10.4 seconds. But it’s the pulling power that counts, and even loaded up or with a trailer, the Mitsubishi’s performance isn’t dented much. The auto box makes towing easier, while the manual is a big step up over its predecessor. You feel less vibration through the lever, with a tighter and more positive action.

Mitsubishi’s Super-Select 4WD electronically controls the switch from rear to all-wheel drive, plus there are high and low-range gearbox settings. Low range gives the L200 even more load-lugging ability, plus this versatile workhorse is backed by a five-year warranty.

Fresh looks mean it’s easier on the eye than many bulky rivals, while a narrower body than most trucks doesn’t affect passenger or load space, yet makes it easier to manoeuvre. The L200 is a jack of all trades, but it’s mastered one: being a brilliant pick-up.
