Very different cars. The GTV is small, exterior and interior, not at all practical, but I think a bit more fun to chuck around. It's also a lot older and this shows in several ways, things like the key/alarm system.
GT on the other hand, has lots of nice things that make it a lot more of a luxury experience, like trip computer, boot release from key, window operation from key, dual zone climate control, cruise control, radio buttons on the steering wheel and a load of other things I can't think of right now. It's also got real back seats and can fit 5, plus the back seats can split fold to give a massive load space. It's very composed, and can be thrown about, but it's not as chuckable as the GTV.
In short I think they're actually quite different cars, and if you don't know what you want you need to go for some test drives and gt some first hand experience.
One thing is for sure though, if you're doing less than 12,000 miles a year the V6 is a no brainer!
