FIRS GARAGE LAUNCHES MITSUBISHI L200 SERIES 5 AT MORETON IN THE MARSH SHOW

Aug 21, 2015

An Oxfordshire Mitsubishi dealership will celebrate the launch of the L200 Series 5 pick-up at the Moreton in the Marsh Show on September 5th.

Firs Garage, which has been a part of the popular show for 40 years, will offer visitors a first look at the all-new vehicle on its stand, along with the entire range of Mitsubishi vehicles.  

Dean Wood, Dealer Principal at the family-run dealership in Hook Norton, said: ‘We have a long history with the Morteton Show and we’re looking forward to this year’s event. The show is a celebration of everything that’s great about the British countryside so it’s the ideal place for us to launch the new L200 Series 5, which I’m sure will prove very popular.’

The Moreton in the Marsh Show, in the heart of the Cotwolds, is one of the largest one-day agricultural shows in the country. This year’s event is on course to be the biggest yet with a record number of entries across all livestock sections.

Lynne Parks, the Livestock Secretary for the show, said: ‘Moreton Show is increasingly being talked about as the best one-day show in the country and the buzz is getting better and better.’

In addition to the livestock, the show has two attraction rings, the best in local food and lots of fun for the children.

Prior to its arrival at Firs Garage in Hook Norton the all-new L200 Series 5 has already been named Best Pick-Up 2015 by judges at Auto Express – the UK’s top automobile weekly. It has inherited the DNA of its predecessors and takes the pick-up concept even further.

The L200 Series 5 is an entirely new vehicle from the ground up, with significant improvements in 330 areas. The result is the ultimate vehicle for commercial duty, combined with SUV-like refinement in quality and dynamic performance. In all key areas the new L200 Series 5 is best-in-class. These include fuel efficiency, performance, emissions and manoeuvrability plus combined carrying and towing. It is also the only pick-up that can be driven permanently in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive on tarmac and off road.

The L200 Series 5 is more fuel-efficient than before, with a combined 42.9mpg, and returns the lowest CO2 figure in its class, emitting just 169g/km. It has a turning radius of 5.9m and can carry and tow a combined 4.1 tonnes, outshining similar vehicles from other manufacturers.

The L200 is the biggest-selling 4x4 pick-up in the UK. Mitsubishi has sold 130,000 here since its launch in 1987 – accounting for 20 per cent of the overall pick-up market – and 1.3 million worldwide.
