Front space is similarly good on Single, Club and Double Cab versions of the L200. Tall adults get a good amount of head room, leg room and shoulder room. There isn’t much difference in the front between the L200 and its main rivals.
There’s a small, covered storage cubbyhole just in the front of the gearlever for throwing a set of keys into, but you’ll struggle to get a mobile phone and wallet in there as well. There’s also a cupholder, another small recessed area and a large cubbyhole underneath the front armrest between the front seats.
Each front door has a pocket, which has been sculpted to accept and hold tight a one- litre water bottle. There’s also enough room to store other items behind it.
Mitsubishi L200 rear space
Double cab models get three rear seats, Club Cab two and Single Cab none
There are three different types of cabin on the L200, a Singe Cab, Club Cab and Double Cab. The Single Cab gets just two seats, the Club Cab gets two occasional seats behind the front two and the Double Cab gets three rear seats.
There’s obviously no rear space to talk about in the Single Cab, but the Club Cab model’s rear room is poor. Head room isn’t too bad, but leg room is tight even for teenagers, so these are strictly for short journeys for a maximum of two people. Access to the back seats is also difficult when folding the front seats forward.
The Double Cab is a much better bet if you have a family. It two rear doors, so access is much better, and there’s room for three people across the back seats. That said, although two adults will sit comfortably in the outside rear seats, tall adults will find their knees against the front seats, and three adults side by side will be rubbing shoulders. The Middle passenger also has a tall transmission tunnel to straddle.
If you regularly carry four or five people in your pick-up, it’s probably worth looking at the Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara and Volkswagen Amarok, too, because these rivals have more rear space in their Double Cab bodies.
Mitsubishi L200 seating flexibility
Nothing special but average for the class
The front passengers seat gets the same manual levered base and backrest adjustment as the driver’s seat, and again, there isn’t even the option to electric or lumbar adjustment. Unfortunately, the front passenger seat misses out on height adjustment across the whole range.
Single Can L200’s get no rear seats, but the Club Cab’s rear seat bases can be flipped up to allow items to be slipped in behind the folded front seat and stored. The Double Cab’s rear seats can’t be folded from the base or backrest, but there’s little need to, given there’s not a traditional boot behind.
Mitsubishi L200 boot space
Three different load bay lengths and various cover options
The L200 doesn’t have a boot, but instead a load bay, which has different sizes based on which cabin style you choose – Single, Club or Double Cab.
Going for the Singe Cab gets you less interior space but the longest load bay at 2.2 metres, while the Club Cab’s bay is shorter at 1.81 metres, but gets greater practicality inside. All Double Cabs expect the Trojan have a 1.51 metre load bay, but much better interior space. The Trojan gets the same interior space, but a shorter 1.33 metre load bay.
The Single Cab also has the highest weight limit for its load bay, at 1145kg, whereas the Club manages 1050kg and the Double Cab 1055kg. All are the same width between their wheel arches, though, and all will accept a standard-sized Euro pallet between them with ease.
Mitsubishi can fit a raised truckman cover, providing shelter from wind and rain to your L200, and there are various different styles of flat tonneau cover in different materials to suit your needs.
Every load bay, no matter the length, gets a foldable tailgate that leaves a completely flat surface once folded – perfect for making sliding long items in without fuss.
