The latest MitsubishL200 4Life Double Cab has been named Best Pick-Up for Value at the prestigious What Car? Awards 2021. The award is the latest in a long list of accolades for the Mitsubishi L200 which most recently included being named Best Pick-Up in the 2020 Business Van of the Year Awards and 2020 Company Car and Van Awards as well as Pick-Up Truck of the Year at the 2020 Scottish Car of the Year Awards.

According to What Car? Magazine, “Few vehicles have become as synonymous with their category as the Mitsubishi L200, and it's easy to see why. It's brilliantly utilitarian, very well equipped and comes with an efficient 2.3-litre diesel engine. Yet it's also one of the most affordable pick-ups around.”

Not only is the Mitsubishi L200 Series 6 great value, it achieved a certified 52.0 mpg in the 218-mile Fleetworld WLTP Challenge in 2020, an impressive 62% uplift compared to the official combined WLTP figure of 32.1mpg. This was the most improved fuel consumption figure of any commercial vehicle, and of any non-electrified vehicle, in the test.

Priced from £22,945 (OTR, excluding VAT), the Mitsubishi L200 4Life Double Cab is equipped with air conditioning, cruise control, seven airbags, alloy wheels, Easy Select 4WD with Rear Differential Lock and a Bluetooth audio system with music streaming and steering wheel remote controls.

In addition to the L200’s award, Mitsubishi has also claimed a podium place on the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey involving the real-world experience of almost 13,000 users. With an overall average Reliability Rating of 94.55%, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK takes third place in the rankings.

Accord to What Car? “In their first five years, Mitsubishi models perform almost faultlessly, giving the brand an overall score of 97.9% and second place in this age group. The plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV SUV is its strongest scorer, with 97.8%.”

David Rodriguez, Sales & Marketing Director at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, commented, “We greatly appreciate What Car?’s recognition of the outstanding value the L200 offers customers and we know how important it is for many businesses to save money where they can in these difficult times. Combine its affordability with low real-world running costs and its legendary reliability, as borne out by the brand’s strong placement in the 2020 What Car? Reliability Survey, and it is easy to understand why the Mitsubishi L200 has been the go-to workhorse for so many farmers and businesses, small and large, all across the UK.”
