Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Due to the Fullback’s double-cab bodystyle and relatively well-equipped trims, it looks a pricier choice than the more rudimentary entry-level Mitsubishi L200 on which it’s based. But factor in the equipment that comes as standard and the price is comparable to models higher up in the L200 range and undercuts the Volkswagen Amarok by a significant amount.

Entry-level SX models come with 16in alloys, cruise control, a DAB radio with Bluetooth for music and hands-free calls, and keyless entry. You’ll need to stick to the lower-powered diesel, though.


A worthy contender in the pickup class, but no front-runner.

  • Engine relatively quiet at a cruise
  • Steers comparatively well for the class
  • Good acceleration for a pickup
  • More expensive than some rivals
  • Can’t tow as much as the competition
  • Rear suspension unsettled over bumps
