Muscat, 15th February 2021: The latest Mitsubishi L200 has been named Best Pick-Up for Value at the prestigious What Car? Awards 2021. The award is the latest in a long list of accolades for the Mitsubishi L200 which most recently included being named Best Pick-Up in the 2020 Business Van of the Year Awards and 2020 Company Car and Van Awards as well as Pick-Up Truck of the Year at the 2020 Scottish Car of the Year Awards.

According to What Car? Magazine, “Few vehicles have become as synonymous with their category as the Mitsubishi L200, and it's easy to see why. It's brilliantly utilitarian, very well equipped and comes with an efficient 2.4-litre diesel/petrol engine. Yet it's also one of the most affordable pick-ups around.”

In addition to the L200’s award, Mitsubishi has also claimed a podium place on the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey involving the real-world experience of almost 13,000 users. With an overall average Reliability Rating of 94.55%, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK takes third place in the rankings.

Accord to What Car? “In their first five years, Mitsubishi models perform almost faultlessly, giving the brand an overall score of 97.9% and second place in this age group.

The L200 is offered with a choice of petrol or diesel engines, each delivering lower emissions and improved fuel efficiency resulting in significant fuel savings in the real world. The petrol variants are available in a choice of 2WD or 4WD models, while the diesel variants are available in 4WD only. Diesel 4WD models feature Mitsubishi’s new Easy-Select 4WD, which simplifies switching between drive modes for different road surfaces, delivering improved off-road performance. The L200 is also very affordable with process starting from just OMR 6,395 which includes a six-year warranty and roadside assistance.

As part of an ongoing promotion that ends on 31 March 2021, General Automotive Company (GAC), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Oman, is also offering the L200 with EMIs starting from as low as OMR 79.
