Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the FIAT 500X. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the FIAT 500X.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the FIAT 500X, 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). The Chevrolet Equinox is somewhat more expensive than the FIAT 500X. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Equinox carries a much lower Destination Charge than the FIAT 500X.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the FIAT 500X.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the FIAT 500X for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox greatly out-muscles the FIAT 500X.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the FIAT 500X. With the Chevrolet Equinox, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the FIAT 500X.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the FIAT 500X.
