Mitsubishi have been keen to take advantage of the good feeling sweeping across the motor industry at present as it attempts to increase footfall into it’s dealerships with a whole heap of deals and incentives. All of which make the prospect of purchasing a brand new Mitsubishi just that little bit more affordable out there in the world of ‘real life’ motoring.
Indeed, MotorMartin drove down to Nathaniel Cars, a Mitsubishi, MG and Subaru main dealer, on David Street, Bridgend, CF31 3SA 01656 339849, http://www.nathanielcars.co.uk to drive the Mitsubishi L200 Warrior, Outlander PHEV and the ASX ZC-H 4WD as a cross section of the type of vehicle that Mitsubishi offer. And, it has to be said, apart from the excellent service received from @nathanielcars MotorMartin was also extremely impressed with the quality, driving experience and technology present in the three cars that I spent the afternoon in. Reviews will follow later.
Mitsubishi dealers across Britain have great offers to warm to across the brand’s fabulous vehicle range now that the warmer weather is here – from the Mirage city car to the iconic L200 pick-up.
Mitsubishi have shared with MotorMartin the following information regarding the offers currently to be found in their showrooms up and down the country.
The Mitsubishi Mirage
The Mirage has been designed to be just as at home on busy city streets as it is on country lanes. It’s got a winning blend of chic styling, exceptional comfort and low running costs. Features include heated front seats, cruise control with limiter and the Mitsubishi Multi Entertainment System (MMES) – which includes satellite navigation plus a rear-view camera. The model also boasts electric folding door mirrors with integral indicators. And the Mirage has equally fabulous Mitsubishi Personal Lease offers from £135 a month* as well as a 5.9% APR representative** PCP deal, too.
Available as a manual or an automatic, the Mirage, Mitsubishi tell us, can seat five people, has a boot capacity of 235 litres, while the 1.2 three-cylinder petrol engine is Euro 6b-compliant and delivers a wallet-friendly 65.7mpg. Emissions are just 100g/km CO2 for the manual and 99g/km for the CVT, which means owners don’t pay any vehicle tax and there’s no liability for the London congestion charge either.
The Mitsubishi ASX
Available with a choice of powerful, yet efficient, petrol and diesel engines, the awesome ASX crossover offers impressive fuel economy but still packs plenty of pulling power. It also boasts a five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating, is available as a four-wheel drive and MotorMartin can confirm that it is a great place to spend time in.
Mitsubishi have made the ASX available with a £1,000 VAT-inclusive deposit contribution (at participating dealers only) towards a 5.9% APR representative** PCP deal.
Among the specifications, the entry-level ASX ZC has steering wheel audio controls, privacy glass and a premium front centre arm rest/console box. The ASX ZC-M has a number of key specification items to create a fresh new look and feel, including new 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels plus DAB digital radio, while the range-topping ASX ZC-H has a factory-fitted Mitsubishi Multi-Communication System, boasting a seven-inch high-definition touchscreen display, sat nav, reversing camera, DAB plus FM/AM/LW radio, CD players and SD card compatibility. All engines in the new range meet the latest Euro 6 emission regulations. Great news.
The Mitsubishi Outlander
The Outlander diesel has a new and amazing £2,000 customer loyalty offer available to any existing Mitsubishi vehicle owner, not just Outlander owners, at participating dealers***.
Among its many enhancements, the latest Outlander diesel has had 40 noise, vibration and harshness improvements. As well as an improved appearance, which includes new-look LED headlamps and new rear lamps, ride and handling have been made even better, while the cabin interior has increased levels of comfort and safety. It has a five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating, boasts incredible fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions, and is lighter, quieter and more refined than ever. What’s more, there’s a fantastic 5.9% APR representative PCP finance offer as well**.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The multi-award-winning Outlander PHEV is currently MotorMartin’s and the nation’s favourite choice of plug-in vehicle, with Mitsubishi having sold more than 15,000 of them in the UK since the SUV’s launch here in 2014. And with the latest model, fuel economy has been improved – up from 148mpg to 156mpg – while CO2 emissions are down from 44g/km to 42g/km.
The Outlander PHEV, which continues to benefit from a 5.9% APR representative** PCP deal, can travel 32½ miles in electric mode alone – more than enough to accommodate most daily average journey distances. Together with its petrol engine, it has a combined range in excess of 500 miles.
The vehicle is exempt from vehicle tax plus the London congestion charge and qualifies for the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant and Plug-in Van Grant.
The Mitsubishi Shogun
The legendary Shogun continues to have a 5.9% APR representative** PCP offer on the passenger vehicles, making the 4×4 that’s ready to tackle anything a truly attractive proposition.
Rather amazingly, the original was launched in 1982, when the Shogun brought to the world a whole new breed of vehicle: a 4×4 that was tough enough to go where others feared to tread yet enjoyed the sort of sophisticated specification more normally associated with top-end saloons. Needless to say, it’s changed and been updated since then, but it’s still a dyed-in-the-wool, no-holds-barred, authentic off-roader, built to outlast the opposition. Seventy per cent of all new Shoguns are bought by former Shogun owners – do you need convincing any further about its merits?
The Mitsubishi L200
With its fantastic all-terrain driving capability matched with superb power and performance, the ultimate pick-up that is the Mitsubishi L200 really is a four-wheeled workmate like no other, and the all-new Series 5 model, which was launched in July 2015 to great acclaim, has a 5.9% APR representative** PCP offer on all variants.
The Series 5 was named Best Pick-Up 2015 by judges at Auto Express – the UK’s top automobile weekly – ahead of its UK launch, where it received widespread praise from the motoring press. It was also named Light Commercial Vehicle of the Year and Pick-up of the Year at the 2015 What Van? Awards and after spending time in the Warrior across a variety of differing roads and conditions, MotorMartin can certainly see why.
Inheriting the DNA of its predecessors and taking the pick-up concept even further, it’s an entirely new vehicle from the ground up, with significant improvements in 330 areas. The Series 5 is more fuel-efficient than before, with a combined 42.9mpg, and emits just 169g/km of CO2. It has a turning radius of 5.9m and can carry and tow a combined 4.1 tonnes, outshining similar vehicles from other manufacturers.
