Polo coming to US?

It wasn't too longer ago I was wishing Volkswagen would bring the Polo to the US. Will it happen via Dodge?

Chrysler’s US muscle brand Dodge could get a new entry-level car for North America – based on the Volkswagen Polo.

Chrysler, the North American division of DaimlerChrysler, wants a small-segment car in the US to better react to the trend toward small, fuel-efficient vehicles there. (Autoweek)

It can't hurt that every efficient car sold in America ensures a gas guzzler will also be sold. Gotta strike while the iron is hot if they want to sell a lot of Challengers!

The German press has speculated that a Dodge small car could be built at VW’s Puebla, Mexico plant, alongside a Polo sedan that VW is considering building there for the US market.

Hm? VW is considering the Polo sedan? I'd much rather have the hatchback, but the sedan would be better than nothing. No word on whether either car would be available in diesel.
