Passengers should have enough space and the L200 is a capable workhorse

There's no change to the size of the load bed, and the L200 Double Cab is still one of the longest in its class, so passengers should find they have decent room in the back seats. The shorter Club Cab is only offered in the basic 4 Life model, so it's aimed squarely at the commercial market and likely to be a rare sight.

Mitsubishi L200 interior space & storage

The vast majority of pickups sold in the UK feature a Double Cab, giving them five seats and a large load bed for maximum versatility. There's also four conventional doors, making access to the rear bench far easier.

Drivers will find the seat mounted quite low to the floor but a steering wheel that adjusts for both rake and reach, making it easier to find a comfortable position. There's enough head and legroom in the front, while three passengers can squeeze in the back at a pinch. The floor is slightly higher than most conventional cars and SUVs, though, so taller occupants may find their knees raised up.

Families will also appreciate touches like two ISOFIX child-seat mounting points in the back, along with child-proof rear door locks and seatbelt warning indicators.

Boot space

The Double Cab load bed measures 1,520mm in length and 1,470mm in width, while choosing the Club Cab shortens the passenger compartment and makes the loading area 1,850mm long. Its maximum carrying capacity improves slightly to 1,080kg, thanks to larger brakes and the redesigned suspension.


Most pickups will be used for towing at some point during their lives, and the Mitsubishi L200 can haul a braked trailer of up to 3,500kg. There is a caveat, though, because this requires a three-axle trailer; the limit drops to 3,100kg for a dual-axle braked trailer.
