Over the last several months the L200 has proved itself to be a competent performer over long distances and an accomplished load lugger when called upon.
Interior comfort in the Mitsubishi is also impressive with specification levels that would not look out of place in the cabin of a prestige car.
But there are features that let the overall pick-up package down. The Kenwood satellite navigation system, for example, works efficiently when programmed via the touchscreen, but it does not display the actual time once a route is set.
The most irritating factor, however, is the integrated radio/stereo. It sounds good, yet is anything but intuitive to use and the buttons can barely be seen let alone operated with adult fingers.
