The Mitsubishi L200 has won ‘Pick Up of the Year’ in the United Kingdom’s Auto Express Awards for the third consecutive year, with the iconic truck retaining its crown at a prestigious ceremony in London last week.
The magazine’s judges praised the L200 for its unrivalled all-round capability, the truck impressing with its versatility, driving dynamics, and high level of standard equipment.
Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief at Auto Express, explained: “Whether it’s for work or play, the L200 has a brilliant blend of abilities that make it a worthy award winner. Apart from its abilities as a workhorse, we love the way it drives with a strong engine and good handling, while it comes with plenty of luxury kit on board, too. In a busy year for pick-up launches, the L200 still comes out on top.”
The L200 has been a mainstay in the Mitsubishi Motors’ model range for decades. This latest Auto Express accolade adds to the multiple awards that the Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 has won since its introduction in July, 2015.
The Mitsubishi L200 is available in single, club, and double cab body styles and a payload of up to 1,060kg and a towing capacity of up to 3.1 tonnes (braked ).
