Mitsubishi L200 Ruling the Driving Side

Mitsubishi L200

A competent addition to the pick-up class

Toyota Hilux is a set standard in the pick up category but Mitsubishi is the upcoming tough competition in the market. Although there are some very lavish rivals like Fiat Fullback, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max, Nissan Navara and Volkswagen Amarok, so what keeps this one in the leading position.

The answer is its driving refinement which is an essential element when it comes to pickup class. You want fuel economy switch to rear wheel mode and when tricky paths ahead challenge you hit the four-wheel drive option and there will be a powerful push to get the car going.

The double cabin form is a good load carrier and can transport upto a tonne of cargo which is a very good figure. To increase the power further when the things get very rough there is a low range gear box and a differential lock to support. The new updates has brought many changes that put the car in a far better position than before and this fifth face lift is a success all in all.

The responsive Engine

For a practical load carrying vehicle its engine power must be very good. The Mitsubishi L200 is very good in this area. The 2.4 litre engine is a good fix by the company available in two power outputs 151bhp and 178bhp. The 151bhp is a bit slow taking 12.2 secs to travel 62 mpg. There is also a Mitsubishi L200 2.5 litre diesel engine with astounding performance.

The second one is faster taking the time of 10.4 secs for the same mpg. There is a good load this transport can take but when loaded to full capacity there is a visible struggle from the car to manage traveling as well. But still you can give it a chance as being a car and not an actual load carrier still it gives visible superiority in the category.

Handling makes a good deal

As other things got refinement so is the handling side. There is a visible difference in how L200 behaves before on road and how it is at present. The body roll is now in strict check and the ride is more composed now.

The brakes are effective in the presence of ABS and the pedal that works well. There is a good grip of tyres when doing a little adventure rides on the country side so this area is also clean. Steering is also well balanced and gives the confidence for a safe and accurate driving.

Safety side and reliability

Now, when the company is building such a car it must be a tough one and this Mitsubishi is just like this. It is a tough car ready to be relied upon in any conditions. Even the safety side is kept up to the mark in real sense.

The stability and traction control systems are well in coordination for a stable power distribution. Seven air bags, an adjustable speed limiter and Trailer Stability if a trailer is attached, all add up to the safety side. The Hill Start Assist, hazard lights that blink when brakes are hit hard, lane departure warning are also there for a behaved ride.
