Smaller cars coming to US

I guess some car companies have finally decided that some Americans want the cool small hatchbacks that are sold everywhere but here.

Japanese automakers have announced plans to bring high-mileage city cars to the U.S. market, once considered inhospitable to such small runabouts. The Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit and Nissan Versa will arrive next year packed with fuel-saving technologies that generate up to 40mpg. (Newsweek)

OK, that's a start. The smart fortwo (recently migrated to Canada) is a bit small, even for me, but how about the Ford Ka and Volkswagen Polo?
