Mitsubishi’s recent innovations have earned the car brand many awards including two notable achievements in 2016 for the Outlander PHEV and L200. It’s not the first time either of the cars have scooped awards, showing they’re here to stay.
Outlander PHEV – AutoVoltSUV Electric & Hybrid Award
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is no stranger to praise. The SUV utilises electric technology to offer an eco-friendly and peaceful drive without compromising on the capability of the 4x4. It has been a best-selling plug-in car in the UK, and it comes as little surprise that it has scooped awards. Judges at AutoVolt commended the Outlander PHEV on its good looks that have both rugged and smart appeal. The SUV cleverly hides its hybrid technology by concealing the plug port neatly into the body and refraining from adding the blue detailing usually found on plug-ins.
L200 – AutoExpress Pick-Up of the Year
For the second year running, the L200 pick-up truck has taken home the AutoExpress Pick-Up of the Year award. It fought off stiff competition from the Nissan Navara and Ford Ranger to take the title. Impressive both in terms of comfort and capabilities, it’s a true all-rounder of a pick-up truck. AutoExpress commented, “Its robust underpinnings will take just about anything you throw at a working vehicle, but the Mitsubishi is more car-like to drive than its rivals”. Cheaper than both the Ford Ranger and the Nissan Navara and with strong fuel economy, returning up to 42mpg, it’s ideal for businesses. The judges also praised the easy ability to switch between rear and all-wheel drive to enjoy the best performance on various roads.
The Outlander PHEV and L200 both make superb cars for businesses and personal use. They are available to test drive through Birchwood, so contact us over the phone or online using the enquiry form to arrange an appointment.
