Nathaniel Cars has celebrated the launch of the brand new Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 with a two-day event to mark the arrival of Auto Express’s Best Pick-Up 2015.
This event was the first time anyone had been able to drive the new vehicle, which was displayed at the Vale of Glamorgan Agricultural Show in August this year.
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, including:
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.
The L200 Series 5 is more fuel-efficient than before, with a combined 42.9mpg, and returns the lowest CO2 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 178 bhp in a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual. And with its leather interior and clean dashboard layout, it’s even been likened to a premium, executive motor more than a pick-up truck.
Wayne Griffiths, Managing Director of Nathaniel Cars, said: ‘Everyone here is excited about the new L200 Series 5 and we’re confident it will prove a big success. There was a lot of interest in the vehicle when we took it to the Vale of Glamorgan Agricultural Show, so we had a busy couple of days with people keen to see what it is made of.’
The L200 is the biggest-selling 4x4 pick-up in the UK with 130,000 sold since its launch in 1987 – accounting for 20 per cent of the overall pick-up market – and 1.3 million worldwide.
The L200 range comes with a five-year warranty, a 12-year anti-corrosion perforation warranty and three-year pan-European breakdown cover plus home and accident insurance.
The all-new L200 Series 5 is on sale now. Initially available in 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 list prices.
