The Jetta Haus experience continues its tour across America with stops in New York and Los Angeles, featuring live music, DJ sets, local visual artists and closed course test drives  


Herndon, VA (May 16, 2018) — Volkswagen of America, Inc. will continue the “Jetta Haus” series of pop-up events with stops in New York and Los Angeles this coming weekend. Celebrating the launch of the all-new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, the event is an opportunity for members of the public to get behind the wheel on a closed course and experience the vehicle’s turbocharged performance, modern style and available premium BeatsAudio™ sound. Volkswagen recently concluded the first stops of the Jetta Haus events in Chicago and Miami.

Open to the public and free to attend, Jetta Haus festivities will include: SiriusXM® broadcasts, live music from breakout performers, including Interscope™ and Red Bull Records™ artists (in NY); DJ sets from SiriusXM® and Beats™ by Dr. Dre talent; snacks and treats; beverages provided by Red Bull™; arcade games; and an interactive “Betta Lab” art experience.

Based off Volkswagen’s award-winning MQB architecture, the 2019 Jetta dons a new sophisticated coupe-like exterior design, offers impressive interior space, competitive fuel economy and upscale technology features, from available automatic cruise control to available 10-color ambient lighting. The all-new Jetta goes on sale this month, starting at $18,545, which is lower than the previous model.

"Following on the success of the Jetta Haus in Chicago and Miami, we're excited to bring the 2019 Jetta to our Jetta Haus guests in New York and Los Angeles," said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Volkswagen of America, Inc. "The seventh generation of the Jetta offers more value, style and technology at a more attractive price point than ever.”

Rounding out the full Jetta Haus experience is the Volkswagen “Betta Lab,” an interactive art exhibition inspired by the Jetta’s available 10-color ambient lighting and available premium BeatsAudio™ sound that takes attendees on a sensory journey through light, sound and motion.
