It wouldn't surprise me if we are still getting this 3rd gen. platform while the rest of the world has moved on to 4th and 5th gen.
You realize that apart from a few things like hid and auto stop and BLIS, out NA gets the same kit as the Euro?
And you know why the Euro gets more? Because they are used to paying that much for a small car that has everything.
Americans have it in their heads that bigger is somehow better.
