Mitsubishi L200 pickup - Interior & comfort
There's lots of kit but the execution isn't always perfect
It's fair to say the L200's interior is something of a mixed bag but Mitsubishi has taken steps to make the experience for drivers and passengers alike more refined. The new suspension setup serves up a more comfortable ride but some of the interior fails to impress. There are at least plenty of luxuries on offer, including a heated steering wheel.

Anyone familiar with the fifth L200 will be at home in the latest model, with most of its interior carried over in its entirety. That includes a touchscreen infotainment system with a rather dim screen but quite a few apps and a 360-degree camera view. A new colour display between the instrument dials provides extra information, while the dashboard feels robust and switches are easy to understand and use.
There should be a version of the L200 to suit almost everyone, starting with the utilitarian 4 Life models that have electric windows, Bluetooth, alloy wheels and cruise control. The Warrior trim adds more luxuries, including a rear-view camera, keyless start, LED headlights and dual-zone climate control. The Barbarian trim is the equivalent of the Ranger's Wildtrak trim, with an off-road mode, 18-inch wheels, a soft opening tailgate and illuminated door sills, while Barbarian X adds a 360-degree parking view, leather seats and heated steering wheel.
With a wide variety of trim levels on offer, the best approach is to pick the one with the kit that suits you, rather than ticking option boxes. There are a number of genuine accessories, though, from hard tops for the load bed to tow bars and chrome roll bars.
