2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor was new.


Interior: 7.7

Reviewers said the Mitsubishi Endeavor’s interior is spacious and comfortable, but it lacks a third-row seat and has some low-grade materials.

  • "Most cabin trim is appropriate for the price, though the LS's seat cloth looks unattractively utilitarian. The SE's leather upholstery feels notably upscale." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The five-passenger Endeavor boasts a roomy passenger cabin that accommodates even the tallest folks, while the well-shaped seats prove comfortable on long trips." -- Edmunds


Though the Endeavor doesn't offer a third row, it makes up for it with a spacious cabin and particularly roomy, comfortable seats.

  • "Generous headroom [in the front], but tall folks might wish for more legroom. Cloth seats are generously padded; leather almost coddles. … Ample headroom, legroom [in the rear], and toe space, even with the front seats well aft. Three adults fit with some squeezing. The seatbacks recline. The cushion is slightly soft for best support, but comfortably chair-height." -- Consumer Guide

Interior Features

Reviewers found the Mitsubishi Endeavor's controls easy to use, and they liked its unique interior design. However, testers complained about some low-quality materials.

The base Endeavor LS includes air conditioning, rear-seat heater ducts, a height-adjustable steering wheel with column-mounted cruise controls, a manually-adjustable driver’s seat with height and lumbar controls, and a six-speaker, 140-watt CD audio system.

Step up to the Endeavor SE and you'll get a leather, eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a six-disc CD Rockford Acoustic premium audio system, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and satellite radio capabillity. Optional features when it was new were limited to the SE model and include a DVD navigation system with a rear back-up camera and power sunroof.

  • "The gauges are easy to read. Audio and climate controls are large, clearly marked, and easy to reach. SE has dashtop audio/compass/climate display separate from actual controls; it can be hard to read in some light conditions. Smooth, precise switchgear and trendy blue dashboard lighting lend a bit of an upscale touch to the cabin." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The cabin has a rather funky design, with a center stack reminiscent of a 1980s boom box and cool blue instrument lighting that should appeal to those looking for more visual excitement than many vehicles in this utilitarian class provide. Materials quality could be better, however, as there's more low-grade hard plastic than you'll find in a Hyundai Santa Fe or Nissan Murano." -- Edmunds


The Endeavor's maximum cargo capacity is 76.4 cubic feet with the second row folded down and 40.7 cubic feet with all seats in use. This is about average for a five-seat SUV. The Endeavor comes with a center console with multiple storage compartments and removable cupholders. Cargo tie-down utility hooks are standard.

  • "Opening tailgate glass is handy, but the load deck is relatively high. Rear seatbacks fold with a single motion and sit nearly flat with the floor, even with the headrests in place. The spare-tire well and a sidewall net store small items. Ample interior storage is highlighted by plenty of tie-down hooks, cabin bins, a large console, and glovebox." -- Consumer Guide
  • "At 76 cubic feet, the Endeavor's maximum cargo capacity falls between midsize five-passenger SUVs like the larger Murano and smaller Ford Edge, and should be adequate for most families." -- Edmunds
