Prior to its arrival the all-new L200 Series 5 has already been named Best Pick-Up 2015 by judges at Auto Express – the UK’s top automobile weekly.  It has inherited the DNA of its predecessors and takes the pick-up concept even further.

The L200 Series 5 is an entirely new vehicle from the ground up, with significant improvements in 330 areas.  The result is the ultimate vehicle for commercial duty, combined with SUV-like refinement in quality and dynamic performance.  In all key areas the new L200 Series 5 is best-in-class.  These include fuel efficiency, performance, emissions and manoeuvrability plus combined carrying and towing.  It is also the only pick-up that can be driven permanently in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive on tarmac and off road.

Customers can choose between four trim levels including, 4Life, Titan, Warrior and the top-of-range Barbarian model.

More fuel-efficient than before, the L200 Series 5 offers a combined 42.9mpg and returns the lowest C02 figure in its class, emitting just 169g/km.  It has a turning radius of 5.9m and can carry and tow a combined 4.1 tonnes, outshining similar vehicles from other manufacturers.

Powered by the new 2.4-litre MIVEC turbo-diesel engine, it is available with 151 bhp or 178bhp in a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual.  And with its leather and clean dashboard layout, it’s even been likened to a premium, executive motor more than a pick-up truck.

Keith Moore, franchise manager at Jennings Mitsubishi in Middlesbrough, said; “We are delighted to be launching the new L200 Series 5 model and looking forward to the event at the weekend.  We have already taken a number of enquiries from prospective customers and the launch event is an opportunity for people to come in and see just how good it is.”

The L200 is the biggest-selling 4x4 pick-up in the UK.  Mitsubishi has sold 130,000 here since its launch in 1987 – accounting for 20 per cent of the overall pick-up market – and 1.3 million worldwide.

Customers can take advantage of a five-year warranty package, in addition to a 12-year anti-corrosion perforation warranty and three-year European breakdown cover plus home and accident insurance.

Initially available in a double cab, prices start from £19,749 for the 4Life, £20,749 for the Titan, £23,049 for the Warrior and £23,799 for the top-of-the-range Barbarian.  The prices quoted are the commercial vehicle price list.
