Supposedly the new MaxiRally cars as fast as the N4's, and they have a 6 speed gearbox, 280-285 hp engine, Subaru 4WD system, larger brakes, and they weigh 200 kg less. Then again, the N4's weigh more but have more hp.
Chevrolet and Tango Rally team are hard at work on the Agile. One of the engineers used to work for Renault and Mitsubishi, so it might be a good team. Villagra will be building 2 Fiestas. Haven't seen the Peugeot but Honda might just consider this championship.
