Mitsubishi knows a affair or two about pick-ups, and the new L200 is a footfall advanced in all areas. The agent is added powerful, the autogenous is of a college affection and with adapted abeyance the analeptic should be able on and off-road. The looks may put some bodies off, but it’s able-bodied built, and has lots of amplitude and equipment.
Forget the Lancer Evo X… aback it comes to new Mitsubishis, they don’t get abundant added important than this: the L200 Bifold Cab. In contempo years, the analeptic has been by far the acknowledged agent in the Japanese firm’s line-up, and the best accepted apparatus of its blazon in the UK, accounting for a third of absolute sales.
To say the car has a lot to alive up to is an understatement. And it has a boxy brief. Not alone charge the new L200 action a active acquaintance and autogenous added acceptable to an accretion cardinal of abrupt SUV drivers, but it additionally needs to address to its acceptable abject of builders and farmers.
With affecting administration acquired from Mitsubishi’s Pajero Evolution Dakar assemblage car, the newcomer absolutely raises eyebrows. But the exoteric changes are alone one allotment of a absolute update.
The L200 comes with a new 2.5-litre turbodiesel engine, which lifts adeptness from 114bhp to 134bhp and torque from 240Nm to 325Nm, while range-topping Animal models accept 160bhp.
Under the skin, the barter continues with blade bounce rear suspension, but up advanced there’s a new bifold wishbone and coils adjustment – all of which should beggarly SUV-like on-road administration and a added adequate ride than anytime before. Load amplitude is about unchanged, with a 1.32-metre-long rear bay, but the affection of the autogenous has bigger greatly. The assured architecture of the exoteric is agitated over to the inside, with rotary dials, stalks and switches that all feel able-bodied made. Alone some boxy plastics acknowledge that this is primarily a alive vehicle.
Tipped to be the best accepted archetypal in the range, the Bifold Cab Warrior adaptation we collection weighs in at about £19,750. It comes with abounding basement for three in the aback and a acceptable account of equipment, including altitude control, a CD stereo with MP3-playing ability, adeptness windows and electric-opening rear cab glass. That compares able-bodied with Nissan’s £20,110 Navara Bifold Cab SE. Something abroad to consider, though, is tax. If you’re application a analeptic as a aggregation car, the bulk you pay is based on a allotment (according to your earnings) of a £500 collapsed rate. From 1 April 2007, this will jump to £3,000 – although your account bill will still be cheaper than it would if you ran a Ford Mondeo on the CO2-based system.
On the affirmation of our abrupt aboriginal drive, the L200 is a all-inclusive advance on its predecessor. We’ll accept to assets our final adjudication until we’ve agitated out a abounding alley test, but Mitsubishi looks to accept addition champ on its hands.
