hello every body

I live in thailand and we have here only auto gearbox. I am hesitated between a mazda 3 2.0 L 2017 facelift 165 HP and cx3 facelift ( with GVC )
If i choose the CX3 i will make lower spring and tyre of 225/40/18
for be true i like the mazda 3 but the ratio gearbox is 3.8 vs 4.3 the cx3 and it is 80 kilo more heavier but the chassis is better than cx3 which is higher, narrow and torsion beam rear suspension
What will your choice according the main goal is to have fun with 4 seats car ?
regards
samuel

I owned a 2004 Mazda3 FWD and currently have a 2016 CX3 AWD. Both cars were automatic transmission are fun to drive, but the CX3 with AWD is way more fun, particularly on wet, snowy, or sandy roads. I've heard the CX3 is based on the Mazda2, so it has a smaller less powerful engine. That doesn't matter to me it's still a lot of fun to drive and gets quite good mileage. The interior space is a little smaller on the CX3, so there is less cargo space and the rear seat legroom is more restricted.
