The 2.2 JTS is quite common and the 1.9 JTS is its smaller brother. The 1.9 JTS is indeed quite rare, because it was very soon replaced by the 1.8 MPI (not to be confused with the 1.8 TBi).
If I had to choose between the 1.9 JTS and the 1.8 MPI, I would pick the 1.9 because it's a bit less Vauxhall and looks better.
I myself had 2 of the 2.2 JTS (159 + Brera) and was very happy with them. Now I have the 1.8 TBi which feels a lot more powerfull and is great for overtaking.
What I miss a bit are the perfectly smooth and fast gearchanges at high revs, which aren't really possible with a turbo engine anymore.
