    Which is the best 4x4 pickup with back canopy - Mitsubishi L200, Nissan Nirvana etc?

    Economy, reliability, usability and 3.5 tonne towing capacity being important.

    Also, are they much more expensive to insure and run than a car/van?

    I think the 2.2L 150BHP has 3500kg towing capacity and is more economical?

    Yes but it's frightfully boring by comparison.

    I'd choose a navara or hilux ahead of it.

    If you choose the 3.2,get the automatic.
