2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Washington D.C.

Sporty is an adjective that can be applied to just about every Volkswagen, but there is one vehicle in particular that it really pertains to: The Golf GTI. Not only does the compact hatchback look sporty, but it has some impressive performance capabilities that beautifully mirror its one-of-a-kind design. At first glance, it may look pretty similar to the standard Golf, but there are a number of features that really help to set it apart, and just one test drive will help you to understand how different the 2017 Golf GTI truly is.

At Karen Radley Volkswagen, we always like to introduce the Golf GTI to parties interested in the Golf, as well as the Golf R, as it exists as a strong middle ground, delivering the power, handling and style of the higher-end, performance-driven Golf R for the price of the entry-level Golf. In our inventory, you’ll find a handful of GTI models to choose from, and as we’re sure that you’re excited to get a look at the vehicles that we have in stock, we encourage you to head to our inventory by clicking the button below. If you are interested in learning a bit more about the Golf GTI before taking the next step, however, keep scrolling.


As we’ve already hinted to the performance of the Golf GTI, let’s get right to the details. Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0-liter engine that has just four cylinders, but that comes turbocharged, allowing it to get as much as 210 horsepower. With the available Performance Package, however, the GTI gets 210 horses.



Performance is not all that you can control inside the GTI. Technology is a part of just about every system that you’ll find in the interior, which means that you have control over quite a bit. There is also an optional Car-Net App-Connect system that makes it quick and easy to pair just about any smartphone to the vehicle.



Both inside and out you’ll find that there are a number of features that add to the sport factor of the Golf GTI. Some are very prominent too, including the GTI-exclusive brake calipers and one-of-a-kind rims. We are big fans of the available Clark Plaid seats that cannot be put into any other Volkswagen but the GTI.

Although the Golf GTI makes performance its main focus, it is pretty amazing at doing a number of other things, such as hauling. The hatchback design makes it possible for you to seat five and still fit a good deal of cargo behind the second row. If you need more space, the second row seatback folds down and opens the GTI to an impressive 52.7 cubic feet of space. It’s more than twice the size of the average car trunk.

Topping it all off is an available package of driver assistance features that essentially give you a few more sets of eyes on the road. The full suite of features contains Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Park Assist, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert and Park Pilot. Combine that with the fact that the Golf GTI is already capable of delivering class-leading safety and you’re looking at one safe vehicle.

As we mentioned above, we have a few models of the Golf GTI in stock at any given time, and if you are specifically interested in the latest 2017 model, we would be more than happy to work with you to get you behind the wheel for a test drive, and take you all the way to signing on the dotted line—if you decide that the Golf GTI is the one for you, that is. Check out our inventory to see what we have available, and if you have any questions for us, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’re more than happy to help you.
