Ah - just double checked, and a version of this car may in fact be headed this way - as a Ford.

Quote:
Ford of Europe will derive its next-generation Fiesta subcompact from the same platform as the all-new Mazda2, which made its world debut at the Geneva motor show this month.

A small, unnamed B-car, as the industry calls the segment, is destined for North America around 2009 and will be based on the Fiesta, Ford says.
