At the Frankfurt auto show in 1979, Volkswagen introduced the Jetta and production began in August. The first generation Jetta was assembled in Germany, Yugoslavia, Mexico and South Africa. Volkswagen offered several engines for the Jetta including 1.1L I4, 1.3L I4, 1.5L I4, 1.6L I4, and 1.8L I4 gasoline engines and 1.6L I4 diesel and 1.6L I4 turbo diesel engines. Transmissions consisted of 2 manual versions: the 4-speed and 5-speed and 1 automatic version: 3-speed. The first generation lasted from 1979 until 1984.
The second generation included the longest running Jetta and was called the Mark 2 series. This second generation of Jetta was considered to be a huge sales success. Some considered it to be North America’s best-selling European car. This generation of Jetta’s platform was larger and heavier. Dimensions increased everywhere: length, wheelbase and width. The second generation lasted from 1984 until 1992.
Volkswagen discontinued the Jetta name in the third generation for European market but kept the name in North America.
