    Sure VW will send their "data people" to rallies for customers, just like M-Sport and Skoda are doing.

    Difficult to say for sure but from this photo it looks like the Polo has a more conventional front suspension layout than the Skoda: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DQcswolVQAAXc5e.jpg

    Fabia III is PQ26, Polo VI is MQB.

    PQ24 (Fabia II/S2000) and PQ 25 (Polo V/WRC) were nearly same, the difference was that PQ25 was 4WD adapted variant of PQ24 I believe.

    Anyway the answer to the question about front strut design definitely isn't in the used platform.

    Of course, just visual similarities from photos.

    But VW will 'build-on' the strengths of the Fabia wont they... or will äkoda not allow them the full info about their car ?

    DS3 and 208T16 shared a lot between them even though both were PSA... will VAG ?

    New/speculation from Sweden: http://www.emotorsport.se/nyheter.ph...yhets_id=14665
    it says tha development can get cheap for the Opel. The new Corsa has the same platform as the C3. Due to that most parts can be reused.

    Opel also awaits the new R2 rules, and expect also here to let development happen in france, and have one ready in 2019.

    Good to get more brands, to have freedom of choice, and also possibility to get support from national importers.
