2018 FIAT 500L vs. 2018 Ford Fiesta Review

Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the FIAT 500L than the Ford Fiesta. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the FIAT 500L and the Ford Fiesta in the front seats.

The Ford Fiesta requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500L, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The FIAT 500L is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Fiesta. 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 500L is much higher than that for the Ford Fiesta.

Since the FIAT 500L is much wider than the Ford Fiesta, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the FIAT 500L, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford Fiesta.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Fiesta.

The FIAT 500L has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Fiesta, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

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