The GC is about two and a half inches shorter than the SWB 7er and about three inches lower. Accordingly, there's considerably less rear seat room in the GC, particularly in the middle seat. However, having owned (and loved) a few 7ers in my day, I can tell you that none of them give you the sporting feeling of the 6er.
