Mitsubishi reveals revised L200 pick-up with 'significant' changes


The pick-up includes a range of driver assistance features, including forward collision detection, blind spot warning and rear-cross traffic alert.

Mitsubishi also cites a number of smaller ‘detail’ changes, including larger front brake discs and callipers, and larger rear dampers to smooth performance. The firm did not give specific details on those parts.

The L200 is one of Mitsubishi’s best-selling vehicles in the UK, rivalling the Outlander PHEV, and is increasingly popular among private buyers. The firm has yet to finalise exact UK specifications, including powertrain. The current version is exclusively sold in the UK with a 2.4-litre diesel engine.

The machine will be offered with single, club and double cab variants, although the single cab version won’t be offered in Europe and the UK due to low demand in those markets. 

British pricing has also yet to be confirmed, although with the extra safety equipment it is likely to be slightly increased from the current model. Pricing currently starts at £19,505 for the single cab entry level model, with the cheapest club cab costing £20,655.

The higher-spec Barbarian models, which account for the bulk of British sales, currently start from £26,980 for a double cab version.

The L200 will continue to be produced exclusively at Mitsubishi Motor’s Thailand facility in Laem Chabang, south of Bangkok.
