VW Polo BlueMotion: Mileage champ for the US?

VW Polo BlueMotion
The New York Times says: Bring the VW Polo BlueMotion to the US. And we support!

There might be compelling reasons to bring Polos over here, especially the diesel versions. Why? Because they get incredible fuel economy, better than most hybrids. The Polo 1.4 TDI is rated at 41/62 miles per gallon in the European driving cycle.

But there’s an even more fuel efficient Polo. Introduced last year, the Polo BlueMotion is a mileage champ — thanks to a combination of light weight (2,389 pounds); improved aerodynamics; a 79-horsepower three-cylinder turbodiesel engine with direct fuel injection; very tall gears in the 5-speed manual transmission; and low rolling-resistance tires.
