    How long was the agreement to compete with the current spec cars? Five years? That would mean 2017-2021

    No, it will not. What is going to be shown in Geneve is only facelifted Fabia III (that may impact the look of Fabia R5 at maximum).

    And what changes are there for 2019? They announce before starting of 2017 that there will be big changes, but I can't figure it out what ones. Maybe just calendar expansion?

    How much time is this face lift Fabia Mk3 supposed to last? It makes one wonder if the Mk4 will actually be released in 2020.

    ESTR, You mean 2020, right? Because 2019 is the third year of first cycle.

    AFAIK the plans are for 2020, i.e. 6-years long total lifecycle.

    Ok. Still, a 2 or 2 and half years life seem a bit short for the face lift model. In any case, they can use last year Fiesta precedent and homologate the WRC car several months before the series model launch. Time will tell.
