    Yes to the former.

    I think the Polo probably shares a lot from the current Fabia R5 (they already said they worked together on the engine). Not sure there will be a next generation Fabia R5, they might be busy with other stuff..

    Same Chinese engine for VAG, not much to choose from. Probably more similarities also, but different platforms, 208/DS3 are exactly the same platforms.

    The engines of Fabia R5 and Polo R5 shall be same, not only the basis but near completely same (for sure exhaust must be different due to different platforms).

    Description of the changes that have been made in Hyundai i20 R5 as "the final joker" can be found here:
    https://www.fiaerc.com/enhanced-hyun...or-erc-action/

    There will be at least 2 Hyundais in Azores Rally and further 2 in Rally de Canarias, with good drivers, so it will be possible to see if the changes are effective.

    Apparently, Peugeot has finished their models sequence on the number 8. 208 will be replaced by a brand new...208. Probably it'll be launched only in Geneva 2019; same platform of the C3 and the future Corsa (2020); all getting R5 versions, similar to the C3.

    The Proton Iriz R5 took another victory today in the hands of Ollie Mellors at the Cambrian Rally first round of the 2018 BTRDA national championship. He beat a quality field including 1.6 and 2.0 WRC cars and several other R5 machines.

    These are the kind of stages that will seemingly be used for one of the full days of Rally GB this year. They're in North Wales, nearer the service park.

    Mäkinen plans to outsource the new customer sports activities, much like M-Sport with its branch in Poland. "Here in Finland we focus on the World Rally Cars. We want to do the R5 activities from Estonia, "said the 53-year-old.
    A timetable for implementation already exists. "If everything goes according to plan we could start with the design in the autumn and with the development of a Yaris R5 in the spring," says Mäkinen, who relies on an old acquaintance in the development. "Juho Hänninen would be a good test driver."
    Takamoto Katsuta is unlikely to enjoy the new Yaris R5. He should already be sitting in the Yaris WRC next year. Just in time for the comeback of the Rally Japan in the World Cup. That should fuel the revived rallying excitement in the Land of the Rising Sun even further.
