Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Journey than in the FIAT 500X. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500X, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500X.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Journey will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Dodge Journey and the FIAT 500X have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey 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 Dodge Journey, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the FIAT 500X.

Drivetrain
The Dodge Journey has much lower torque than the FIAT 500X, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the FIAT 500X is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Journey and the FIAT 500X.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the FIAT 500X, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Dodge Journey, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the FIAT 500X.

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