Having owned both, I would buy a Manual version again, and would not buy a CVT version again. The manual is so much better it's not funny honestly. If you are trying to talk yourself into buying a CVT then just do it and don't test drive a manual that way you can save yourself the pain of knowing how much better the car could be. BUT if you are still on the fence definitely test drive a manual so you can see how drastic the difference is and make the correct choice.
