NEWS - L200 crowned 'Pick-up of the Year' for second year running

If you recall I recently reviewed the Mitsubishi L200. My review can be found here. I scored it 35/50 and was very impressed. It appears I am not the only one, as for the second year running the L200 has been named 'Pick-up of the Year' at the Fleet Van Awards.

Having led the way in terms of innovation styling, specification and 4x4 capabilities, the L200 remains the market leader in its segment; the L200 range accounts for 30.5% of the market. The other contenders included the Nissan Navara and Toyota Hilux.

A Fleet Van Judge commented: “The L200 won this award thanks to its greater range of derivatives and load bed options and level of availability. Mitsubishi offers all the options for all fleet requirements. The L200 is also strong on residual values, comes with a big range of horsepower options and enjoys strong back-up from the Mitsubishi dealer network. Add in competitive pricing and the L200 justifies its place as Pick-up of the Year.”

Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s Managing Director added: “We’re delighted that the Mitsubishi L200 has again retained the Fleet Van Pick-up of the Year title, but it’s easy to see why. The versatility of the range is unmatched, with everything from practical and functional single-cabs through to powerful lifestyle double-cabs. It is an honour for us to receive this award as it firmly establishes the L200 as the clear favourite among commercial vehicle operators.
