Driving the Mitsubishi L200 Sportero

Driving on a range of roads from highways to the challenging roads of Dadap, the L200 feels smooth and serene when cruising.

The L200 boasts optimal road performance and road-holding capabilities throughout the drive. It was perfectly stable and planted to the ground which inspired confidence from behind the wheel.
Another highlight was how the good steering felt during the corners and tight bends around Dadap. Its light steering and good feedback were easy to maneuver.
It was at the long winding road of Dadap where we got to test out the true prowess of the 2.4-litre MIVEC engine.
Through this, The L200 features a wide range of advanced technologies and safety features for a safer and more confident drive.
Moreover, going up hills also proved to be easy thanks to the hill-start assist feature. This way drivers can completely leave control of the uphill speed all to the car.
