I'm not talking about the little diesel commuter cars.
It's irrelevant what you think are "worthy" because if that were the case there are plenty of US brands that I don't think rise above mediocre either.
In the context of the show UK Top Gear can pull models from far more places to talk about - Citroen, Fiat, Renault, Peugeot, Lancia etc. ... even one time industry joke Skoda got Jeremy Clarkson's seal of approval.
The diesel variants of the same model get a different look on the UK show too like the Jag at the Nurburgring, which thanks to the lack of diesel-interest here means that can't be covered or compared either.
Even Euro models which make it to these shores are sold below Euro spec like the new Golf R so you can't even see those at the same potential as the original versions.
