The Mitsubishi L200 has a solidly built interior, but wins no prizes for visual appeal

Nowhere are the Mitsubishi L200’s roots as a commercial vehicle more obvious than inside. Its interior quality and design simply don’t cut it when compared to those of a similarly priced SUV.

But compared to other pickups, the L200 is among the best of breed. Only the Volkswagen Amarok and Mercedes X-Class beat it, although even the Amarok can’t match the robust feel provided by the Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi L200 dashboard

The L200’s dashboard is neatly styled, with some nice design details. The materials used are par for the course for a pickup like this – in other words, robust, but not particularly tactile. That’s important, because vehicles like this live a hard life and are often used and abused.

The controls are well laid-out, with buttons and dials chunky enough to operate when wearing gloves. High-spec Warrior and Barbarian models feature a touchscreen sat-nav, which looks a little aftermarket compared to the more integrated system fitted to the Volkswagen Amarok. It‘s been upgraded to Mitsubishi’s Smartphone Link Display Audio system, with voice control to help you access its functions without taking your hands off the steering wheel. It can also connect with compatible smartphones to make calls, access text messages or media and use the phone’s sat nav.

Equipment

All models in the Mitsubishi L200 range feature cruise control, air-conditioning, a leather steering wheel and gearknob and controls on the steering wheel for the stereo and telephone functions. But buyers looking for a dual-use vehicle – for work and home life – will want to step up to at least the Titan model.

Not only does it feature more creature comforts, but little features like a soft-opening glovebox and silver air-vent surrounds make it feel more like a car. Other kit you’ll find on the L200 Titan includes a push-button start, 17-inch alloy wheels, tinted glass, dual zone air-conditioning with ducting to the rear seats and DAB digital radio.

The L200 Warrior offers the choice of manual or automatic gearboxes, heated front seats and an electrically operated driver’s seat, sat-nav, a rear-view camera and a rear bumper step. The top-of-the-range L200 Barbarian adds leather seats, chrome trim and a range of additional lighting, inside and out.

Options

The Mitsubishi L200 options list includes a range of load-bed covers, including flat tonneau covers and hardtops. Other options are a range of styling upgrades, additional interior and exterior protection and a number of tow bars.
