Best Pickup 2017 Carbuyer Awards: Mitsubishi L200

The Mitsubishi L200 has scooped another major award, this time for Best Pickup at the 2017 Carbuyer Awards.

The panel of judges for the 2017 Carbuyer Awards were especially impressed with the latest Mitsubishi L200, saying it is ‘better than ever’ thanks to its arrangement of impressive off-road capabilities with car-like on-road dynamics, while also offering competitive pricing and high standard specification.

Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer said: “The Mitsubishi L200 name has been with us for more than 30 years and the latest model is better than ever. It delivers on its promise of rugged ability with some neat detailing and an impressive amount of equipment, while it packs a strong 2.4-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that allows you to tow over three tonnes. It’s also the most car-like pickup to drive on-road and extremely capable off-road. Despite all this, it can return more than 40mpg. Combine that with competitive pricing and a number of desirable high-spec models and it’s clear why the L200 is out best pickup.”

On receiving the award, Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors UK, commented: “Tough and rugged vehicles like the L200 and Shogun are what the Mitsubishi name has been built on over the past 100 years. We’re delighted that CarBuyer has recognised the qualities that have made the Mitsubishi L200 a critical and commercial success.”

The latest Mitsubishi L200 model went on sale in July 2015 and has claimed numerous accolades since then. It’s available in single, club and double cab body styles and has a payload of up to 1,045kg and towing capacity of up to 3.1 tonnes.
