It will come down to just how good the car actually is. I would not take the huge loss unless it was remarkably better. If it had more room in the back, I would strongly consider it. If it is substancially better dynamically I would consider it.
But I would not trade my car in just to have a car that is only 5% better, no. I would hold out for a legacy GT.
The VW is a great car to buy second-hand from someone like you
. Save 1/3 of the money and get a great car with low miles
. Not that it's a lot better with any other brand, but I've always been impressed with how abruptly the VWs lose value in the first year. Insane.
