2016 FIAT 500L vs. 2016 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-Z, the FIAT 500L may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500L as you will with the Honda CR-Z, 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). Whether you pick the FIAT 500L or the Honda CR-Z, 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 CR-Z.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500L is a little wider than the Honda CR-Z, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the FIAT 500L, which is slightly longer than the Honda CR-Z.

Drivetrain
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 Honda CR-Z.

Handling
The FIAT 500L has a smaller turning radius than the Honda CR-Z, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500L is somewhat more powerful than the Honda CR-Z.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the FIAT 500L more than the Honda CR-Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500L will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda CR-Z.

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