I think you have chosen 2 very good cars.
You should test drive both cars and see which one you prefer. You could also go to the following websites and compare information on them to help make your decision:

Here are some reviews on these particular vehicles:
These are both euro-spec vehicles and not for sale in America at this time so I can only offer you some basic euro reviews.
I always suggest to first time buyers to consider these things before buying a car:
- Budget: Know what you want to spend and stick to it.
- Resale Value: Look up typical vehicle resale values to make sure you know what investment you are making.
- Safety: Look up the safety of the vehicles (http://www.safercar.gov/) to rate their crash tests.
- Your own comfort: test, test, test! Drive each and try to determine which you enjoy more and which meets your needs better.

There are a lot of considerations when buying your first car. Although I do not have experience with either of the models that you mention, I do suggest you watch the videos that are available on our consumer website. Each topic is presented clearly and may help you make a wiser decision.
