2017 FIAT 500 vs. 2017 Toyota Prius c Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius c than the FIAT 500, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Prius c will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500 as you will with the Toyota Prius c, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the FIAT 500 is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Prius c. 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 Toyota Prius c.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500 is much slimmer than the Toyota Prius c, 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 Toyota Prius c.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius c.

Handling
The FIAT 500 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Prius c, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500 has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius c. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The FIAT 500 has less seating than the Toyota Prius c, making the Toyota Prius c 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 Toyota Prius c.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500 than that of the Toyota Prius c.
