VW Polo and Subcompact VW Crossover Finally Ready to Appear in the U.S.?

Subcompact VW crossover?
Volkswagen Cross Polo 
For years we've been hearing rumors of the Volkswagen Polo coming to U.S. shores. Well, the rumor mill is churning again. Motor Trend is reporting that, due to CAFE standards, the Polo will be hitting U.S. shores. For real. Apparently. Hopefully.

In addition, a subcompact SUV/crossover will be here, too. (Remember the VW Rocktan and CrossPolo?) MT is saying the Polo could be here as as 2015; the subcompact CUV/SUV no earlier than 2016. So it might be a bit early to get excited, but we'll see if it actually happens this time.

I'd welcome a smaller VW model, and always dug the Polo. While I'm not holding my breath, I'm cautiously optimistic.
