The Mitsubishi L200 has succeeded in defending their title of ‘Best Pick-up’ at the Carbuyer Awards 2018 ceremony held at the Curzon Bloomsbury Cinema in London.

The judging panel based their votes on running costs, comfort, practicality, reliability and safety, as well as performance, engines, price, value for money and optional extras – with the Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 standing out from other contenders in the category.

Carbuyer EditorStuart Milne, said: “Mitsubishi has made a name for producing tough vehicles and the L200 is unquestionably its best pick-up yet. The latest model packs plenty of equipment, some neat detailing and a punchy 2.4-litre diesel engine that’s capable of hauling over three tonnes. Its four-wheel-drive system means it’s as capable off the road as it is on it. Despite all this, it can return a claimed 40mpg-plus, making it pleasingly cost-effective.”

Priced from £18,500.00 (CV List Price), the award-winning Mitsubishi L200 is available in single, club and double cab body trims and powered by a 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine.

Lance BradleyManaging Director at Mitsubishi Motors UK, said: “The L200 has been core to the Mitsubishi range for over 30 years and it has been played a very significant role in establishing the brand’s reputation for quality, dependable vehicles. We are delighted that Carbuyer has once again recognised its many attributes and voted the Mitsubishi L200 to be the best pick-up around, especially as the sector is growing considerably and is the most competitive it has ever been.”
