2014 FIAT 500c vs. 2014 Ford Mustang Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the FIAT 500c than the Ford Mustang. The Ford Mustang will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500c.

Convenience
The Ford Mustang requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500c, making it more convenient to drive.

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 500c is clearly a better financial choice over the Ford Mustang. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The FIAT 500c and the Ford Mustang have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
The FIAT 500c has much less torque than the Ford Mustang, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500c and the Ford Mustang. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500c will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Mustang.

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