Mitsubishi L200 dimensions (2019-on)

The Mitsubishi L200 Series 6 is relatively compact for a pickup, and the load bed in particular is narrower than rivals, though it's not the smallest area on the market.

It makes up for this reduced volume in terms of manoeuvrability and payload, however. Not only can it carry 1,080kg, it's able to tow 3.5 tonnes (3,500kg) with impressive stability, thanks to four-wheel drive that can be engaged on wet tarmac or mixed surfaces if necessary, 

Meanwhile, the L200's relatively low kerbweight and high gross train weight mean that it can carry more in the back while towing to its maximum than most rivals.

Capacity & size

3.5 out of 5 3.5

Mitsubishi offers the L200 Series 6 in a range of specifications indeed to serve the needs of both working operators and lifestyle buyers, though even the lifestyle models are more than capable of putting in hard graft when required.

That said, the entry-level 4Life versions feature a 180-degree opening tailgate, ideal for ramps and difficult loads, as fits their billing as work-orientated models. The Warrior and Barbarian versions feature a rear bumper and step that reduces this to 90 degrees.

A loadbed liner is an optional extra for all models. This slightly reduces the ultimate dimensions of the load area (see below) but saves the paint job from getting scratched. The L200 has six fixed load hooks in the back, with optional floor mounted ones as an accessory.

Roof bars, load covers, hard tops and styling bars are all also available.

Good news for previous-generation L200 owners looking to upgrade is that the Series 6 L200 supports accessories from the previous Series 5 L200 model, so you won't have to change everything when buying the newer model.

Mitsubishi L200 body variants

The L200 comes in two body variants, labelled Club Cab and Double Cab.
There are also four standard trim levels: 4Life, Warrior, Barbarian and Barbarian X (L200 equipment details can be found in the Costs and Value section of the main review).

Club Cab L200 models are only available with 4Life specification, manual gearbox and part-time 4x4. Rear-hinged pillarless back doors provide access to 'occasional' rear seats; flip-up rear seat bases allow this area to be used as a heated, secure storage area. The loadbed is usefully longer than a double cab.

Double Cab L200 models come with four full doors and five proper seats, though legroom for the centre rear competes with the smartphone pocket/USB sockets. Space is otherwise sufficient for most family needs, with room for four adults in comfort and three three-point seatbelts in the back. There's a space behind the seat back to store smaller, infrequently used emergency items.

Mitsubishi L200 exterior dimensions

It's not just the amount of load and passenger space that varies between models, however. Thanks to different wheel sizes and rear bumpers, the L200's exterior dimensions change with trim level.

No prizes for guessing that the Club Clab version has a larger load bed than the Double Cab.

Payload, weight & towing

3.9 out of 5 3.9

While the L200 doesn't have the highest payload ratings versus the most potent pickup rivals, overall it's quite the practical package.

Mitsbushi L200 payload capacity

All versions of the Mitsubishi L200 Series 6 can carry 1,080kg, regardless of trim level and whether you go for the Club Cab or Double Cab body style.

Mitsubishi L200 towing capacity

The L200 can tow 3.5 tonnes regardless of version, albeit with a sensible caveat: towing over 3.1 tonnes needs to be done using a triple-axle trailer.

Mitsubishi UK performed extensive tests when upgrading the L200's rating, and found that the Trailer Stability Assist was more effective that way.

The gross train weight (GTW - the total legal weight of the vehicle and any trailer it's towing) of 6,155kg means when towing that 3.5-tonne maximum, the amount you can carry in the back is still quite generous.

As such, the L200 remains one of the class leaders at 620kg plus 3.5-tonne overall - though it's worth remembering that passengers are payload too.

It can also tow 3.5 tonnes while using four-wheel drive on tarmac, thanks to its centre differential - a rare capability, and one that allows towing out of slippery fields onto roads with tight turns, or secure traction on wet or greasy surfaces.
