Since the beginning
The car is available from 2005. During this time he managed to earn a very good reputation, to collect a lot of positive reviews, as well as to become a leader in many markets. L200 for a long time held a leading position in Russia. However, the emergence of a new player, and also from Japan, was an unpleasant surprise for the L200, which marked the displacement pickup from the throne. Many guessed that dangerous competitor performs Toyota Hilux .
Because the update, which was subjected to the pickup, was timely. Oh its good you can learn in our review. We will try to examine the car literally from all sides, so that you can assess how much better was the Mitsubishi 2020 L200 after the update, and whether the modernization benefited.
Of course, the car is needed for external adjustments. Henceforth L200 has an image characteristic for all the latest models of the manufacturer. Some know that Mitsubishi 2020 uses corporate identity, called the Fuji Mountain. Simply put, this is Mount Fuji. Very upset by the fact that in the face of the basic equipment of a pickup retained from the old version.
If we take an updated version of the front part, it just copies the image of the model Pajero Sport last generation. This means that the muzzle of a pickup is small but stylish lights, trim neat grille, new bumper, out of which shows a steel engine protection. In general, the front has become more elegant, more courageous, more brutal. In this regard, of course, restyled Mitsubishi 2020 L200 has become much better than its predecessor.
Kind of assembly gives us a great look at the rear overhang, literally still huge radius of the wheel arches, which swelled by plastic overlays, as well as practical and large side doors.
