What You Need to Know About Jetta Haus New York

All New Jetta 2019

From May 18 – 20, Jetta Haus New York rolled into Brooklyn, NY, letting guests get up close and personal with the all-new 2019 Jetta. In attendance, Trend Motors Volkswagen was able to check out Jetta firsthand – before the lineup arrives at dealerships across the country in the coming months. Here’s everything you need to know about the interactive art car experience.

The Pop-Up Event

Taking place at Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse, the three-day Jetta Haus New York pop-up celebrated music, art and the completely redesigned 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. Representatives from Trend Motors Volkswagen were able to take Jetta for a test drive on an illuminated closed course and experience the new technologies that elevate the compact car to a whole new level.

During the event, immersive visual experiences – provided by the Betta Lab art spaces and an arcade of retro games – captured Jetta’s vibrant and fun-to-drive nature. Many of the experiences were inspired by the 2019 Jetta’s turbo engine, available 10-color ambient lighting and available BeatsAudio sound system. Performances from local musicians, including City of the Sun and Oak & Ash, were sponsored by Beats by Dr. Dre, Red Bull Records and SiriusXM, providing a lively backdrop as our team learned all about the new Jetta.

About the 2019 Jetta

Now in its seventh generation, the VW Jetta has been completely redesigned from the ground up for the 2019 model year. It’s the first Volkswagen available with BeatsAudio, and it’s sportier and more driver-focused than ever before. Mood lighting for every journey is provided by the available 10-color interior ambient lighting, while App-Connect keeps music, contacts and apps at the ready by letting you connect your compatible smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. For invigorating, yet fuel-efficient, performance, Jetta comes standard with a turbocharged engine that offers an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway with the manual transmission.
