Ford trademarks Stormtrak name in Europe

Towards the end of 2019 Ford trademarked the Stormtrak name in Europe. The filing was discovered by AutoGuide, and the publication believes the name could be used on a jacked-up Subaru Outback-style wagon model, which is rumoured to be the replacement for the fourth-generation Mondeo. If this is indeed the case, it's unclear whether the company will choose to brand the vehicle as the Ford Mondeo Stormtrak or the simply as the Ford Stormtrak.

Audi still not planning an RS1 – report

He referred to the turbocharged five-cylinder engine in the RS3 as being “our heritage” and said the RS3 would remain the entry-level Audi Sport model.
