2015-08-14: First drive: Mitsubishi L200

What's this then?

Mitsubishi's latest L200 pick-up, an automotive toolbox that promises to go further, carry more and offer all the value of the hugely popular fourth-generation vehicle it replaces. Prior to the arrival of Mitsubishi's Outlander PHEV the L200 pretty much single-handedly propped up the company financially. It's a massive worldwide seller - for good reason.

So what's new?

This new model builds on the solid foundations of its predecessor, bringing a more car-like driving experience to proceedings, yet losing none of its rugged, hard-working ability. As before, the new L200 will be offered in single- and double-cab formats, while its 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine will be offered in either 151- or 178hp states of tune - with 380- and 430Nm of torque respectively. The standard transmission will be a six-speed manual, while a five-speed automatic will also be offered optionally, featuring paddle-shifts - a first in the pick-up class.

It's popular you say?

With over 60,000 sales in the UK the L200 has a loyal following. Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi's Managing Director, points out that the L200 is class leading in a number of areas, not least its load carrying and towing capacities, but also in its economy. The new L200 has a combined economy figure of 42mpg. That translates to a CO2 emissions rating of 176g/km, which undercuts its nearest rival by around 18g/km. That's not currently so significant, but with commercial vehicles likely to be joining the CO2-based taxation system soon, it's very important for the L200's continued success.

Is there much new under the skin?

Restyled inside and out, the new L200 promises a more car-like driving experience as mentioned above, with sharper steering - thanks to a reduced lock-to-lock - and a tighter turning circle than any rival. New body and engine mounts should also bring refinement improvements, while the suspension revisions promise to bring greater comfort. Prices have yet to be announced; these are due to be revealed closer to the July on-sale date.
