VW Jetta TDI Cup 2010 Street Edition Announced (US) Reviews and Specification

I am pleased to see clean diesel getting noticed. I have averaged 50.8 MPG (documented) in mixed driving over a 2-year period in my '99 Jetta TDI. With over 202,000 miles on it, I would only replace it with a clean diesel. Sure VW, M-B, and BMW have great small diesels, but what about newer, lighter clean diesels from Honda and Subaru? When is the USA getting competitive alternatives? My German relatives have a newish diesel Golf, and they have to pay for a permit to drive the vehicle in their region of Frankfurt because the diesel engine produces more pollution than the regular petrol variant. The vehicle has a similar body kit to the version shown off during previous TDI Cup races. Mods were made to the "front bumper, side skirts and rear valance," and large, red, caliper brakes were added. The brakes are covered by 18-inch Charleston wheels. Sport suspension and sway bars were taken from the GLI. VW Jetta TDI Cup 2010 Street Edition Announced (US) Reviews and Specification
Power comes from a 140 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine that generates a healthy 236 ft-lb of torque. It is paired to either a six-speed manual, or DSG paddle-shift transmission.
Interlagos cloth-lined sport seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel complete the package.
Pricing for the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition begins at $25,000. The car also qualifies for a federal tax credit of $1,300. It will appear in showrooms beginning January 2010.

Does this new technology actually make the diesel spew less emissions than regular petrol?
It's a real shame that Australia gets screwed and left with less refined fuels. Cars have to be re-tuned for Australian fuels and turbo cars have more lag. Twin-turbo cars are even worse, with a gap between the two, which leads to massive disappointment.
