Attempt to rectify
decoration
Perhaps Seat Sport expected better but given team's lack of experience with 4WD turbo-charged cars and high level of competition by the opposition, it was only logical that first version of Cordoba WRC would struggle. Combined with the fact that car had several areas where solutions were far from ideal the results were quite satisfying. But, there were those areas where improvements were necessary.

Evo2 tried to address some, with varying degree of success. One was the engine which lacked the required grunt, especially on low revs and to remedy this Evo2 had a new, bigger Garrett turbo charger which improved torque. Suspension settings were also new but no major alterations to geometry had been carried out, unfortunately.

First evolution employed active differentials in front and centre, in Evo2 also rear differential became active. The most apparent change was face lift inherited from base model. This added some 20 millimeters to overall length but also improved aerodynamic efficiency and cooling. Part of the aerodynamic package was newly designed rear wing which reduced drag.
