Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the FIAT 500L than in the Honda Fit, due to the FIAT 500L's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the FIAT 500L and the Honda Fit in the front seats.

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 Fit, 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 FIAT 500L will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Fit, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Fit.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500L is much wider than the Honda Fit, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Fit.

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 Fit.

Handling
The FIAT 500L has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Fit, 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 Fit.

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

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