2016 FIAT 500 vs. 2016 Kia Forte Koup Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Forte Koup than the FIAT 500, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500, drivers may find the Kia Forte Koup a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Kia Forte Koup you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the FIAT 500 or the Kia Forte Koup, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the FIAT 500 is much higher than that for the Kia Forte Koup.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500 is much slimmer than the Kia Forte Koup, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Forte Koup.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the FIAT 500 and the Kia Forte Koup do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The FIAT 500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Kia Forte Koup, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500 is significantly less powerful than the Kia Forte Koup. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The FIAT 500 has less seating than the Kia Forte Koup, making the Kia Forte Koup the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Kia Forte Koup.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the FIAT 500 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Forte Koup.
