Introduction

What Car? says...

The Mitsubishi L200 has been the brand's workhorse pickup truck for more than 40 years, and this is the sixth-generation of the model. Unlike most rivals, which offer a selection of power outputs, the L200 has just a single 148bhp 2.3-litre diesel engine that drives through a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.

The L200 is designed to take on tough terrain and has switchable four-wheel drive that can be engaged on the go. There’s also a low-range gearbox and a range of other handy off-road assistance features that get cleverer as you ascend the trim level hierarchy.

You’ll find that the L200 remains competitively priced compared with its popular rivals, which include the Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara, Ssangyong Musso and Toyota Hilux. The range kicks off with the utilitarian 4Life trim level, which you can have with a Club Cab (with very limited rear seat space) or the more spacious Double Cab. All other versions are based on the popular Double Cab body and offer far more creature comforts as standard.

Alternatively, if you need more space and less ‘truck’, there’s always the Mitsubishi Shogun Sport, which is essentially an L200 with a full roof and seven seats. You can read about that in our separate review by clicking the link. 

Read on over the next few pages to find out more about the L200 and whether it’s the right pickup for you. And when you're ready to buy your next set of wheels, our New Car Buying service takes all the hard work out of getting a great deal.
