Advanced Design

The new Canter features a revised face that combines historical brand cues with a modern design language, connecting form to the functionality of a solid light-duty truck. It also reflects FUSO’s Black Belt design identity, which runs through other vehicles of the Japanese brand’s global product range. The sleek lines of the cabin integrate optional LED headlights and represent a technological and conceptual update after ten years.

Advanced Safety

The new Canter can now be ordered with the advanced safety feature Sideguard Assist®. This detects moving vulnerable road users on the passenger side of the truck through radar sensors. The system emits alerts if it detects any risk of collision when the driver is steering towards the passenger side or has applied the left-turn indicator. The previous model featured Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS); Sideguard Assist now provides further safety support. Other enhancements include optional LED headlights with 30% better visibility, a new Autolight function, and reinforced rear underrun protection that minimises the impact in the event of an accident.

Advanced Comfort

Over the past decades, FUSO has made continuous improvements to its light-duty truck to meet customer needs. Thanks to improved insulation, the new Canter has an impressively low interior noise level. The spacious cab with good all-around visibility allows the driver to manoeuvre easily in the city. The Canter’s low entry height and easy cross-cab access is designed to support truck drivers, especially those engaged in the distribution business.

The New FUSO Canter

Multifunctional, the FUSO Canter is optimised to challenge urban traffic environments but with a high axle, twin rear wheels and 3.5t – 8.55t varieties, the truck can also stand the multi terrains for construction haulage. Exhaust gases are cleaned by a combination of oxidation catalytic converter and diesel particulate filter. Along with BlueTec® 6, the technology ensures all Canter models comply with the Euro VI standard. The front axle features independent suspension for a smoother journey, and allows for rapid shifting without power loss thanks to Duonic transmission technology. 

The FUSO is the perfect alternative to the Nissan cabstar, Nissan nt400 and the Isuzu Grafter that comes with the support of Mercedes-Benz. Confused as to why we don't call it the Mitsubishi Canter? Scroll to the bottom for some history on the Canter and why Mercedes-Benz sell them.

  • The 96 kW (130 hp)
  • The 110 kW (150 hp)
  • The 129 kW (175 hp)

The advanced exhaust emission control system, combining state-of-the-art common-rail technology, variable geometry turbocharger and the standard-fit idle start/stop function work works to bring the vehicle in line with Euro VI standards. For additional environmental sensitivity, the Eco Hybrid combination of an efficient 3.0-litre engine and a powerful electric motor. 

All engine variants have a closed, maintenance-free diesel particulate filter which regenerates itself automatically. Cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), an oxidation catalytic converter and a particulate filter combine to clean the exhaust emissions. 


The 3.5t model with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) complies with the Euro 5b+ standard.

 Models from 6.5 to 8.55t meet the new Euro VI standard with EGR, DPF and, in addition, BlueTec® 6 (selective catalytic reduction).

The direct-shift transmission causes less wear to auxiliary equipment, reduces the burden on the driver, particularly on short trips, and combines the convenience benefits of an automatic transmission with the economy of a manual transmission.

Is that Not a Mitsubishi Canter?

Do you not call it a Mitsubishi Canter? Unfortunately, not really. Some people are maybe confused about why Northside are selling a product with the Mitsubishi logo, who FUSO are as a brand and what the connection with Mercedes-Benz really means.

A lot of people tend to call the Canter a Mitsubishi Canter, rather than a FUSO Canter. Heres a a little history on the FUSO Brand:

Mitsubishi Motors owns 10.7% of Mitsubishi FUSO Truck & Bus Corporation (MFTBC), the company that makes vehicles under the FUSO brand worldwide. The other 89.3% is owned by Daimler, who acquired the majority share in 2001.

  • Mercedes-Benz owned by Daimler

Mitsubishi translates to ‘three diamonds’. The three-diamond badge has been the logo of the Mitsubishi Group for over 100 years. It has come to be a symbol of quality for the FUSO brand, rather than just the Mitsubishi logo, and because of this, we continue to proudly display the logo on our FUSO products in many countries.


  • 150,000 Canter’s are sold every year worldwide

We want to make it really clear to our customers that FUSO is the brand, Canter is the truck and Mercedes-Benz are the network that support this product within the UK.

Mercedes-Benz and FUSO are partners and by buying a Canter, customers are getting the full support that comes with the Mercedes-Benz network.

So the next time someone says that is a Mitsubishi Canter, you can tell them no, that its a FUSO Canter! And it comes with the support of Mercedes-Benz.
