MITSUBISHI L200 NAMED AUTO EXPRESS PICK-UP OF THE YEAR FOR A RECORD-BREAKING FOURTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
Jul 4, 2018
Auto Express Magazine has named the Mitsubishi L200 ‘Pick-up of the Year’ for a record-breaking fourth consecutive year, a feat that no other pick-up has previously achieved.
Mitsubishi Motors launched the latest generation L200 in the UK in 2015 and subsequently won the Auto Express ‘Pick-up of the Year’ before retaining this important and prestigious award every year since. News of this unprecedented fourth award in a row is a true testament to the depth of capability of the Mitsubishi L200 in the face of competition.
The Auto Express New Car awards span 25 categories and recognise the best vehicles and automotive achievements of the year, with only the very best making the winners’ list. Auto Express is one of the UK’s leading titles for car news and reviews both online and in print.
Steve Fowler Auto Express Editor-in-chief said: “The Mitsubishi L200 is our class winner for the fourth year running. Quite simply, no rival offers the same balance of rugged versatility, kit and value for money. Plus, go for a top-spec Warrior, Barbarian or limited-run Barbarian SVP II version, and the kit you get for your cash means you'll experience the trappings of a top-spec SUV, too.”
Rob Lindley – Managing Director Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: “To win an award with the magnitude of the Auto Express ‘Pick-up of the Year’ award is a tremendous achievement of which we’re hugely proud. However, to win four in a row shows just how ahead of the game the Mitsubishi L200 was at launch – despite many new rivals hitting the market, the most meticulous and diligent journalists in the world still rate the L200 above all others. Perhaps most importantly our customers continue to recognise the capabilities of the L200. Our L200 sales FYTD 2018 are 15% above our sales for the same period in 2017.”
Mitsubishi L200 is available in single, club and double cab body styles with prices starting from just £19,505 (CV OTR). L200 has a towing capacity of up to 3.5T*, and payload of up to 1,060kg and gross train weight of up to 5,950kg. All L200 variants are backed with the Mitsubishi 5 year/62,500 miles warranty.
