Mitsubishi L200 Club Cab
If it is more loadspace in your pick up that you are looking for then the Club cab could be the answer. There are still two seats in the cab behind the driver, but the load bed is longer. The cab resembles that of the doublecab in appearance, but the load bed, although the same width and height at 1470mm wide and 400m high, it is more than a foot longer at 1830mm compared to the double cab’s 1500mm.
The club cab is not designed for rear seat passengers to spend hours in – the bench seat and relative lack of legroom means that it is suited to trips around the corner.
The club cab’s 2500cc gets 134bhpwith the 0-60 dash taking 14.6 seconds with a top speed of 103mph. Combined fuel economy is 32.8mpg with 228g/km CO2 emissions.
The club cab can tow 2.7 tonnes and comes in 4Work, 4Life and Warrior variants.
Mitsubishi L200 Single Cab
For customers who really need a pickup, to use as a workhorse, then it has to be the singlecab – it doesn’t look as flash, but it has the same engine and is available in the 4life version as well as the 4work. You get 2.2 metres of loadbed and 1.22 tonnes of payload.
Mitsubishi L200 Tipper
In addition to the usual pick-up format, the L200 is also available as a handy Mitsubishi L200 single cab tipper. A really handy tool for builders and other users who need the practicality of the compact size of the L200, but need the added flexibility of being able to tip the contents with the push of a button on the remote control lead. Never likely to be a big seller, the L200 tipper was made by VFS conversions and looks as though it was made for it, (which it was). Constructed from a combination of aluminium and steel the body has been powder coated and contains handy lashing points and a cubby hole to store other items. With a 903kg payload and a load length long enough to handle a 2.4metre plank it should be heaven for any builder.
The tipper is driven by a 2500cc common rail diesel rated at 134bhp and can tow an impressive 2.7 tonnes. Available in the ‘4’ range of 4Work and 4Life you get ABS with EBD two airbags, proper stereo and electric windows.
