Because it's essentially a commercial vehicle, the Mitsubishi L200 has been set up to handle heavy loads in the back. As a result, the suspension tends to bounce up and down when the pickup bed is empty, but it's far more stable with a full load on board.

Mitsubishi L200 dashboard

The L200's dashboard is simple and well designed: all of the controls are easy to reach and well spaced out. Don't expect to be bowled over by the finish, though – the cabin is hard-wearing, but it suits the pickup's utilitarian nature rather than being kitted out with the kind of plush, soft-touch materials you'll find in a modern SUV. Despite that, the front seats are supportive, well sculpted and comfortable.

Mitsubishi L200 equipment

Don't expect the L200 to come with loads of luxuries – particularly the basic versions. It's worth remembering that most items of equipment are there to serve the vehicle's business-like purposes, although better-specced models are available further up the range.

Entry-level 4Work versions come with a ladder rack, a front skid plate, USB and MP3 player sockets and Bluetooth phone connectivity. 4Life versions include central locking with keyless entry, air-conditioning and front electric windows.

The Trojan version adds 16-inch alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, electric windows and mirrors, front foglamps and climate control. Warrior trim includes 17-inch alloys, automatic lights and wipers, plus cruise control.

The Barbarian model features LED daytime running lights, a rear-view camera, DAB digital radio, iPod connectivity, sat nav, a traffic information system and leather seats. Finally, the top-end Walkinshaw model comes with 20-inch alloy wheels and upgraded trim inside.

Mitsubishi L200 options

There are a limited number of conventional options with the L200 and you're better off going for the most appropriate trim level if things like the stereo or sat nav are important to you.

What Mitsubishi does have is a large range of accessories for the L200. Many of these are geared towards the kind of utilitarian activities this car is built for, but they also extend to more cosmetic styling features.

Hardtops and tonneau covers (covers for the flatbed load area) are available, although they're not cheap, starting at over £1,000 excluding VAT. There's also a large selection of guards, mats and pieces of exterior trim to protect the bodywork and the interior from the scuffs and damage your L200 could otherwise pick up if it's used as a working vehicle.
