    It would be reasonable to expect the Polo to be at least as fast and possibly faster than the Fabia. After all it will have the same engine, and probably other parts but I guess VW will have been able to further optimise some stuff Skoda could not do just with jokers.

    Sure but on the other hand the Polo is really big for an R5 car. Its size and wheelbase might not be ideal.

    It’s about the same size and wheelbase as the i20, wheelbase is around 10cm longer than the Fabia, 7cm longer than the new Fiesta.

    I already heard from an engineer of Skoda Motorsport that the chassis of the Polo will be the problem to be faster than the Fabia.

    Are there big differences sizewise on the Mk7 and Mk8 Fiestas?
    Not according to what I have found online, but the Mk8 might use a different platform, and therefor need a new homologation.
    So more than the backlight being horisontal, instead of vertical :-)

    Not 100% sure but I believe the new MK8 Fiesta uses exactly the same chassis as the MK7. The MK8 is supposed to be wider than the old one aswell, it looks just as wide as the Focus.
