2016 FIAT 500L vs. 2016 Honda Civic 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 500L than the Honda Civic. The FIAT 500L will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
The Honda Civic requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500L, 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). Whether you pick the FIAT 500L or the Honda Civic, 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 500L is much higher than that for the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500L is a little narrower than the Honda Civic, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the FIAT 500L, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Civic.

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

Performance
The FIAT 500L has less horsepower than the Honda Civic, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

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