    Info re the new R5 Polo being 5-door..

    "the Polo GTI is built on the same MQB platform that underpins everything from the Golf to the huge Skoda Kodiaq SUV. This light and strong architecture allows the bodyshell of the five-door only Polo to be 28 percent stiffer than its predecessors."

    I read sulland speculating on a homologation of the Mitsubishi... Is there any basis for this that I have somehow missed?

    Isn't the FIA requirement 1850? (or 1800 perhaps?)
    The polo might take off some mirrors on tight stages if they stick out past the fenders.

    (although the rally car will likely have smaller mirrors so I don't imagine it will be an issue)

    Still a disadvantage to the Fabia R5.

    The value was for the stock car. It has nothing to do with FIA regs because they don't speak about size over mirrors. Otherwise the limit is 1820 mm.

    Can You elaborate why the MQB is a disadvantage compared to the old PQ26 platform? I would say the huge wheelbase (for the relatively small length of the car) is clear advantage, or?


    Anyway according to the info from autosport.cz some of first Polo R5 shall go to BRR (Baumschlager shall be also involved in the development). At least two of the first fifteen cars (plan for 2018) shall go to South America.
