2014 Toyota Prius c vs. 2015 FIAT 500 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 Toyota Prius c than the FIAT 500. 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 Toyota Prius c as you will with the FIAT 500, 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). The Toyota Prius c is somewhat more expensive than the FIAT 500. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Toyota Prius c will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the FIAT 500.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Toyota Prius c doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the FIAT 500.

Handling
The Toyota Prius c has a larger turning radius than the FIAT 500, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Toyota Prius c offers greater seating capacity than the FIAT 500, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Prius c is not as nearly as extensive as that of the FIAT 500.
