Just saying hi. Looking to get either a 3 or CX-3 in the very near future.
Welcome to the forum mate. I had the same dilemma - choosing between a 3 and a CX-3. In the end the CX-3 won and we get ours in September.

Welcome.

Why the variation between the two? Are your needs limited and it's just the looks you're after when deciding which one you want?

I like the looks (at least in pictures) of the CX-3 better than the 3.
I like the interior, at least in pictures, of the CX-3 better than the 3.
The 3 has a bigger engine as an option, and a manual transmission as an option, and with a lower center of gravity it should be more fun to drive.

I need to drive them both.

The 3 apparently has more cargo room in the back, and I know that holds true with the seats UP, however, not sure if that still holds true with the seats down. I'd be interested to see how the two compare with the seats down.

I think the 3 is the bigger car but I need AWD - that's what draws me to it.

Ground clearance helps too with snow, better than the 3 of course for reasons obvious to us.

I know up in Canada the CX-3 will take on some good sales in comparison to the 3 and better than the further south you go.
