For The Mitsubishi L200 has stylish looks and is good at soaking up potholes. There's stability control on Warrior trim, too, but the real attraction is the tax benefits
Against At high speeds, the L200 is bouncy and suffers from poor body control. The steering is vague and the pick-up is comparatively pricey to maintain
What Car? says
There's no getting away from the Mitsubishi L200's commercial vehicle roots, so you'll need to really want the tax benefits to live with the poor drive and refinement

The advantages of the Mitsubishi L200 are really obvious if you're a business user. Not only might you be able to claim back the VAT when you buy one, you may also incur a lower tax liability.
Which of the various models you choose will depend on how you intend to use it, as the range includes everything from a basic Single Cab workhorse to a Club Cab and the most car-like, the Double Cab, which still has a 2700kg towing capacity. All have the same engine (although there are some upgraded special-edition models with more power), and if you want to save money as an owner, it’s worth considering Mitsubishi’s Service Plan.
This will cover all the scheduled services required throughout the first three years of a new car’s life, ensuring that they are performed by Mitsubishi-trained technicians, using genuine Mitsubishi parts. You can also include the cost of the plan in your finance, and the plan can be transferred to a new owner if you sell your vehicle.
