For better legroom and rear-seat comfort, the 3GL's wheelbase has been stretched by 110 mm, which is the longest in its class and there are subtle upgrades to make things more comfortable. Apart from the extra wheelbase, the BMW 3 Series GL also offers better-cushioned seats, a panoramic sunroof, and revised suspension for more pliant ride quality.
