2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor was new.


Interior: 7.7

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
  • "Interior design and materials are hit-and-miss, with blocky, utilitarian shapes and an abundance of hard plastic surfaces." -- Edmunds


Though the Endeavor doesn't offer a third row, it makes up for it with a comfortable cabin and particularly spacious, 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
  • "The 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor boasts a roomy cabin that can accommodate five taller adults with well-shaped seats that provide ample comfort for long-distance trips." -- Edmunds

Interior Features

The base Endeavor LS model includes air conditioning, steering wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker 140-watt CD audio system.

Reviewers find the controls easy to use and like the Endeavor’s unique interior design. However, they complain about some of the low-quality materials.

  • "Smooth, precise switchgear and trendy blue dashboard lighting lend a bit of an upscale touch to the cabin." -- Consumer Guide
  • "At night, a cool blue glow emanates from the instruments and center stack, giving the cabin a more modern appearance." -- 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 a generous amount of space for the class. The maximum space beats the Hyundai Santa Fe, which provides 78.2 cubic feet. If you really want more cargo space, consider the Toyota Highlander. It provides 95.4 cubic feet with its second and third rows folded down, and 42.3 cubic feet behind the second row.

  • "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
