Boys and girls, it’s our first look at an all-new Mitsubishi Evo. A sentence that, ten years ago, would have had the internet comments section in an immediate froth.

To achieve those things, it kinda has to be a crossover of some description. If that really must be the case, let’s cross all our fingers and toes it’s miraculously inspired by the Mitsubishi Pajero Evo…
