The 1.9-liter diesel, available in the Jetta GL and GLS sedans and wagons, saw its horsepower upped from 90 to 100, giving the diesel-powered Jettas a bit of an extra kick off the line and a bit more assistance when passing at highway speeds.
The standard engine in the GL and GLS sedans and wagons had been a 115-hp, 2.0-liter fuel engine. A five-speed manual transmission was standard across the line, with the exception for the high-end GLI packages, which came with a six-speed manual transmission. A four-speed automatic transmission was optional using the gas-engined Jettas, while a five-speed automatic had been optional for Jettas with turbocharged engines.
