Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

PICK-UPS such as the L200 have be­come in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles in re­cent years, largely be­cause of the good tax breaks they offer.

The lat­est trucks are also more Suv-like to drive than ever be­fore, while still be­ing ex­tremely ca­pa­ble. Mit­subishi’s L200, for ex­am­ple, has loads of kit, a punchy diesel and, in dou­ble­cab lay­out, has room for a fam­ily. Yet its load bay can also carry over one tonne. Price range: £22,200-£36,876 Our pick: Ti­tan Dou­ble Cab (£27,000) En­gine: 2.4-litre 4cyl diesel, 178bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man­ual, dual-range se­lectable 4x4 Top speed: 111mph Econ­omy: 39.8mpg CO2: 186g/km
