320i base models get a six-way manual adjustable seat with options for tilt and height adjustment. A tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel also comes standard on all models so that tall drivers can position their chair comfortably. 330i models and upwards feature 10-way power adjustable sport seats, including two-way power side bolsters as well as manually adjusting thigh supports. Lumbar support is available on M Sport and Premium Tier packages, and heated seats can be included in packages or as a stand-alone add-on.

3 Series owners looking for more room for their second row or their cargo can opt for a 3 Series Gran Turismo (GT) model, which extends the wheelbase and adds a sloping fastback design that expands rear legroom by three full inches.

BMW's durable and easy-to-clean SensaTec synthetic leather comes standard on all models, and sumptuously soft Dakota leather is available as a stand-alone option or as part of the Executive Tier packaging.
