Europe’s 2019 Mitsubishi L200 Adopts New Family Face, 2.2L Turbo Diesel

Besides the world premieres of the Engelberg Tourer Concept and ASX facelift, Mitsubishi’s Geneva Motor Show stand also hosts the European premiere of the facelifted L200 pickup.

The Euro-spec L200 one-ton pickup receives the same styling updates as in the rest of the world. The front end adopts Mitsubishi’s “Dynamic Shield” front styling as seen on other models including the Eclipse Cross.

The truck now features sleeker horizontal headlights, a high bonnet line, and new fog lights. In addition, the bulged wheel arches housing larger 18-inch alloys, the bright accents, and refreshed taillights contribute to a more contemporary appearance for Mitsubishi’s pickup.

As the photos reveal, the Geneva show car is in “Mountain Rescue” configuration, adding a front tow hook and winch, black mirror caps, alloys, and bed cover, as well as LED roof bar.

The cabin sees its fair share of updates too such as soft pad materials for the door trim inserts, central armrest, and central console (which also features stitching now), and a Multi Around Monitor that provides a bird’s eye view of the area surrounding the vehicle. The 2019 L200 also gains new safety technology including Forward Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation.

As for the hardware, the refreshed Mitsubishi L200 uses a newly-developed, Euro 6d-TEMP compliant 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine mated to six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions. No specs are available but the automaker promises “powerful and smooth acceleration and quieter performance.”

Finally, Mitsubishi says the 4WD system now offers “improved all-terrain performance” courtesy of a new off-road mode that offers Gravel, Mud/Snow, Sand, and Rock settings. The updated L200 will arrive in European dealerships in late summer 2019.
