The Mitsubishi L200 has once again successfully defended its title of 'Best Pickup' at the Carbuyer Awards 2019, winning the award for the third consecutive year at a presentation ceremony at the Curzon Bloomsbury Cinema in London.
The Carbuyer Awards consist of 19 categories with only the best in class vehicles making the shortlist for each award. The vehicles have been judged by Carbuyer’s dedicated road-test team, who collectively have dozens of years of experience and have tested thousands of vehicles.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief, Carbuyer said: “The L200 has held on to its position as the pick of the UK’s pickups in 2019. There’s a facelift on the way but the current model continues to shine with its value pricing and engine that’s strong on performance and fuel economy.”
Rob Lindley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: “The Mitsubishi L200 has played a very significant role in establishing the brand’s reputation for rugged 4WD vehicles with high quality and dependability in the UK. We are delighted that Carbuyer has once again recognised its many attributes and voted the Mitsubishi L200 to be the best pickup around, especially as the sector is the most competitive it has ever been.”
Priced from £19,505 (CV OTR)*, the Mitsubishi L200 is powered by a 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine and benefits from the manufacturer’s advanced four-wheel-drive technology. The pickup offers a payload of up to 1,060kg and a towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes (braked).
*The Commercial Vehicle On The Road Price (CV OTR Price) excludes VAT (at 20%) but includes VED and First Registration Fee.
