New Volkswagen GTI For Sale in Bethesda, MD

The Legend Continues with the 2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI

When it comes to performance hatchbacks, perhaps no name is more steeped in history than the Volkswagen GTI. After all, a car that combines practicality and fun so effortlessly will naturally earn a reputation for greatness. And with the 2020 VW Golf GTI, that reputation is more than maintained, and you can find out why at Ourisman Volkswagen of Bethesda. Few things could be considered perfect, but the Volkswagen GTI may come close. One trip around Chevy Chase or Washington D.C. and you will see why.


A staple of the hot hatch genre, the Volkswagen GTI is a turbocharged four-door hatchback that offers plenty of practical interior space and enough pure driving joy to put it at the top of the list for enthusiasts and average drivers alike. So, whether you're planning on thrashing your GTI on a few track days in Potomac, or want an engaging driving experience for your daily commute through North Bethesda, this hatchback will give you what you want in spades.


2020 VW GTI models for sale near North Bethesda are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque with premium fuel. And the torque peaks at just 1,500 RPM which makes it incredibly practical for daily driving tasks such as accelerating to highway speeds, from traffic lights, or away from stop signs.

Fuel economy on the highway sits at an estimated 32 miles per gallon, while city driving will net Glen Echo drivers an estimated 24 mpg. The overall combined rating is 27 miles per gallon, which makes the VW Golf GTI an excellent balance of horsepower and efficiency.

Standard Equipment

The base model of the Volkswagen GTI available to Silver Spring drivers is far from basic. The standard features included on every GTI model are:

  • VW Car-Net App-Connect

This feature allows you to access features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy connectivity to compatible devices. This allows you to access apps such as Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play right on the GTI's infotainment display, and typical features such as phone calls and messages are also included.

  • VAQ Front limited-slip differential

By continuously monitoring wheel speed and lateral G-Forces, this system eliminates the understeer condition that can be common in front-wheel-drive cars when pushed to the limit by actively moving torque between both front wheels to optimize turning ability.

  • GTI Performance brakes

Ventilated disc brakes at all four wheels provide balanced, high-performance stopping power that offers benefits both on the track and on the road.

  • Rear view camera

The wide-angle rearview camera on the Volkswagen GTI helps you back into and out of tight spaces with confidence by giving you a nearly 180-degree view of the world behind you.

  • Sport-bolstered seats

Perfect for holding you in place while you're throwing your GTI through the curves, the ergonomically designed sport seats are designed to keep you both secure and comfortable even on long journeys.

Safety Features

As fun as the GTI is for Brentwood drivers, it also offers plenty of safety for when things go wrong. It is nice knowing you have a hatchback like the VW GTI in your corner, so your safety isn't something you need to think about.  You'll find these features, and more, in your favorite GTI:

  • Advanced steel B-pillars
  • Intelligent crash response system
  • Safety Cage
  • Automatic post-collision braking system
  • Blind spot monitor
  • Lane assist
  • Available front assist with automatic emergency braking
  • Rear traffic alert

Trim Level

The GTI lineup has been scaled back to two trims, but that doesn't mean you will be missing any of the features of the bygone trims. Instead, Volkswagen is focusing its efforts to perfect the remaining options, so you get the best experience possible. It starts with the base S model; it comes packed with a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen, with a Wi-Fi hotspot. You are always connected thanks to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.

Opting for the GTI SE adds the eight-inch touchscreen and satellite radio to the infotainment system. A panoramic sunroof and leather seats are included for comfort. Add the Autobahn package, and you get navigation and even more driver-safety technology, like parallel and perpendicular park assist and adaptive cruise control.
