2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDi Cup Edition

2014 will reportedly introduce to the U.S. a car that many Volkswagen fans have been eagerly awaiting – the Golf “GTD” TDi. Basically a GTi with the turbo diesel in place of the 2.0T, the GTD looks great, drives wonderfully and gets some fantastic mileage. But go back a few years and we basically already had the prototype here; the short lived 2010 Jetta TDi Cup Edition. What you got for your hard earned bucks was a basically a Jetta GLi with it’s heart yanked out and replaced by the thrifty and torque-laden turbo diesel. But this wasn’t just a styling exercise for Volkswagen – they had actively engaged in racing the Jetta TDi in the “TDi Cup” to help promote the TDi brand, so this car has some racing heritage as well. Only 1,500 were produced in black, white, blue, or today’s Salsa Red:

I love the Interlagos interior on the GLi and GTi, and it looks great here as well. Salsa Red is a pretty color; deep and with lots of character. The special part of the Cup Edition was the possibility to get the “Thunder bunny” body kit, and this car has it. It may not be to everyone’s taste and it’s certainly not understated, but this is the highest optioned Cup. The buyer also selected the DSG transmission which is well suited to the TDi, though truth be told I’d probably have opted for the manual. Condition for a fairly new car is unsurprisingly very good, and though miles are a touch high that tends to affect the the value of TDis less than the gas models.

Only 215 of these were produced in Salsa Red, making it the second rarest color of this car, and about half of those were DSG cars. Figure a few didn’t have the body kit, making this one of the rarest Jettas out there. I think in the future these will be semi-collectable by Volkswagen enthusiasts, but right now the pricing is still pretty high for these rare Cups. Still, given the pricing on older TDi models I’m not sure how low these will fall; it’s typical to see $10,000 200,000 plus older TDis so the potential buyer that is interested in one of these will need to balance waiting for prices to fall with condition.

    I have to laugh a little at this because on the last day of July I negotiated a great deal on a brand new 2013 no sunroof DSG’d GTI which had just rolled of the truck for my mom: $20,995 not including taxes/licensing etc. I REALLY like the TDI engine, but her GTI gets 30mpg everywhere and doesn’t make her hands (or her Ferragamos) smell like diesel which, to her, is worth as much as she paid for the car. Previously to this she had driven an A4 Quattro, she likes the GTI so much more… most people don’t need any more car than this to be completely happy

    Jeremy, I faced the same decision with my current Passat wagon; the 1.8T gets between 28 and 34 depending on how hard you push it, and the TDi gets around 40. Sounds like a no brainer, but the 1.8Ts can be had for under 5K while the TDis are pushing 10K (B5.5 chassis). That $5,000 difference buys a lot of gas….
