    Why have they used a 5-door Polo body for the R5 ?

    The WRC Polo was always the 3-door.

    Another 3-door bites the dust.

    Many manufacturers are dropping them now for cost-cutting. I can understand this for proper hot-hatches, but the small ones really suit 3-doors.

    The funny thing is that the new "small" Polo is much bigger than Golf II (nearly as big as Golf III) and the wheelbase is larger than of Golf IV (nearly as large as Golf V)!

    I also heard some time ago that the next Peugeot 208 will only come in a 5 door variant (yes for the GTi also....) so it looks like the beginning of the end for an era....

    The size and mass of a family saloon, combined with the aesthetics of a hatchback.

    I can't think of anything worse than that.

    Mahomo is retiring, and good riddance. 6 mile stages is easily the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Let's cut Formula One races down to 10 laps while we're at, mmmmmmkay?
