Mitsubishi has teased its latest concept ahead of a grand unveiling at Geneva, and despite the limited details that have been shared, we already know the most important fact about the car.

They’ve called it Engelberg, how cute! Okay, its full name is the Engelberg Tourer Concept and it’s named after the Swiss ski resort, but we’d prefer to think of it as a wise old grandpa.
