WHAT does a car maker do if it wants to add a pick-up truck to its range overnight? Well, if you’re Fiat, Re­nault or Mercedes, you stick your badge to an ex­ist­ing model.

Al­though the lat­ter two turned to the Nis­san Navara (op­po­site) for their donor truck, Fiat has renosed the Mit­subishi L200 (Page 61). That’s no bad thing, as it’s one of the best trucks on sale, and the Full­back has the same en­gines and pay­load ca­pac­ity. While the range is nar­rower, the ad­di­tion of the Cross model gives it a boost. Price range: £27,103-£34,543 Our pick: 2.4D LX (£28,963) En­gine: 2.4 litre 4cyl diesel, 180bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man­ual, dual-range se­lectable 4WD Top speed: 111mph Econ­omy: 39.8mpg CO2: 186g/km
