Consider This First Before Buying a Mitsubishi New Colt L300

Consider This First Before Buying a Mitsubishi New Colt L300


 The light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment in the country is a marker of economic activity and positive growth of its users. Its sales have always been the backbone of manufacturers and not a few rely on such products for various economic activities.

Most recently, Mitsubishi Motors introduced the Colt L300 update in the middle of last year. This legendary product that has been present for 40 years is now equipped with an engine with Euro4 emission standards.


The sales performance of the L300 is always convincing. Last September, the L300 maintained its position in the 4x2 small pick up segment with a market share of 54.5 percent. This light commercial vehicle sold up to 1,571 units. This figure stayed with the previous August record of 1,546 units.

So what are the advantages of the Colt L300 in the midst of competition in the light commercial vehicle market? Tetsuro Tsuchida, Director of Sales Marketing Division of PT MMKSI, revealed that one of the concerns of L300 consumers is about maintenance costs. Although it comes with a new Euro4 engine, Mitsubishi assures that the cost of this maintenance will not be a concern from consumers.

"We have thought, in the development of this machine, it should not make consumers worry about maintenance. Half the parts of this new model, the parts are the same as the previous model. It is not much different from the old model. So the maintenance between the Euro2 (old model) engine and the Euro4 is no different," said Tsuchida in a statement.

Tsuchida emphasizes on the periodic maintenance that fleet owners need to do. If it is time to perform periodic service, then machine maintenance will be carried out through checking by experienced mechanics and preventing fatal damage. Moreover, commercial vehicles are vehicles that must be ready to work hard.

On paper, this turbo-powered 4N14 2,268 cc engine produces 99.25 ps of power at 3,500 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 1,000 to 3,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission with a fuel tank of 47 liters for browsing needs even in remote areas.

Based on the records, the old model had a slightly larger engine cubication. But with this new engine it offers the same power and torque. This means that there is an efficiency that the latest L300 users feel.

One of the advantages that L300 consumers love and continue to maintain is the offer of a wide tub size. The length of the trough reaches 2, 630 mm, the width is 1, 600 mm and the height of the trough is 310 mm. Some examples say, the size of this latest tub is able to carry about 4 to 5 units of motors, more than the old model which is only 3 to 4 units of motors. There are also cabin chassis models that can be adapted to the needs of entrepreneurs. The model boasts dimensions of a vehicle length of 4,165 mm, a width of 1,695 mm, and a height of 1,915 mm.

In addition, the popular advantage of the L300 by entrepreneurs is its favorable resale price. From the Oto.com database, production units from 2018 to 2020 are still offered at IDR 150 million to IDR 190 million. If you are aiming for an older year, around 2015 and below, the price offer that was opened was at IDR 120 million. Of course, all prices depend on the conditions.

Mitsubishi Colt L300 is now offered in two variants, namely Pick up flat deck and cab chassis. The first model is priced at IDR 218.65 million and the second model is priced at IDR 213.65 million.

This October, Mitsubishi also offered the Colt L300 with additional attractive programs for potential customers. There are cashback programs or ease of financing such as a smart cash package with 0 percent interest as well as free insurance and admin fees. In addition, there is an offer of 0 percent interest up to a tenor of 1 year or a low down payment of 10 percent. Specifically for this light commercial vehicle, Mitsubishi prepares a direct gift of LED TVs for certain area
