Last 2019, the popular utility van made a comeback, plus, it came with a new Euro 4 engine. Specifically, a 2.2-liter 4N14 motor that produces 170hp and 380 Nm of torque. Apart from the increased power figures, it’s also 10% more fuel-efficient compared to the old pre-Euro 4 model. As for dimensions, the cab height has been increased by 100mm, therefore, giving the driver better visibility. Most importantly, the L300 sits as one of those affordably priced utility vans in the market, with it retailing at just under P1,000,000.
The Mitsubishi L300 is the most iconic nameplate in the utility van segment. Aside from selling over 200,000 sold, this utility van has been known for its longevity, durability, and its low cost of ownership. That is perhaps why many of these are still invading local roads.
