According to Automotive News, although the U.S. will be getting the Volkswagen Polo, VW has decided to make a version for the U.S. that's a bit bigger than it's European counterpart, stating the Polo is still too small for the U.S.
Allegedly, the new Polo will come as a five-door hatch and a sedan. Sorry: No three-door option for the U.S., leaving the Toyota Yaris and Hyundai Accent as the only new three-door subcompact options.
I'm disappointed that VW isn't going to give the Euro-market Polo a shot in the U.S. The Smart is tiny, and I'd bet the Yaris can't be that much bigger than a Polo.
