Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian – on sale now



No information available.


With this year’s revised L200, Mitsubishi has replaced its top-spec Animal variant with a new Barbarian derivative.

For lovers of chrome-clad pick-ups it delivers a seriously attractive package. Standard kit includes climate control, sat-nav, Bluetooth, iPod
connection, and 17in alloys. Although the cabin still looks and feels utilitarian compared to a car, occupants get a very stylish set of leather seats to perch on.

A standard reversing camera takes away the stress typically linked with reversing a large pickup, and will particularly appeal to buyers needing
to tow trailers. It still has its gutsy 2.5-litre turbodiesel and super-select 4WD at its heart. 

The L200 Barbarian now offers the five-speed automatic transmission from the Shogun for a £1,500 premium. Mitsubishi says this offers
better fuel economy on motorways. However that premium makes the almost £27,000 on-theroad price look steep against its key rivals.
