I doubt it on the Polo and Fiesta ST, Fiesta ST would hit the market for the Volvo C30 too much, and the Polo would hit the GTI market.

The mag story I saw mentioned the concern that a Fiesta ST would cannibalize Focus ST sales. But given how the automotive market is being carved into ever-smaller slices of pie, why not offer hot versions of both cars?

And as for the 'bog standard' Fiesta....well, I'm an instructor at the Team O'Neil Fiesta Rally Experience course, and let's just say those lil things are Big Dirty Fun on loose surfaces in 2nd/3rd gear

Back more on topic: does anybody know if the Polo is headed for the US market eventually?

Rally Stuff

from WRC.com

"Volkswagen will enter the World Rally Championship from 2013 with its Polo R WRC.

The announcement was made in Olbia, Sardinia this afternoon ahead of round five of the world championship getting underway on the Italian island tomorrow (Friday).

Volkswagen has a long association with rallying dating back to the 1980s and claimed a famous victory on the Ivory Coast Rally with Kenneth Eriksson in 1987. More recently, however, it has concentrated on off-road events, such as the Dakar Rally cross-country enduro.

The company’s initial commitment is for five years with initial testing planned during 2011. To get the team up to speed with the rigours of competing in the WRC, Volkswagen will field a pair of Skoda Fabia Super 2000s on rallies in 2012 before the planned competition debut of its Polo R WRC in 2013. It has made a commitment until the end of the 2015 season although this could be extended."

Nice, I just wish it had happened about 4 years earlier. I would have picked one up...but the local Volvo dealership wanted $5k over sticker for a C30, and theres no way I was getting a standard Focus at the time. I don't really understand Ford, they had so much success bringing over the Euro Focus, decided to make their own version for some reason that sucked, and are now going back to the Euro Focus once again.
