Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the FIAT 500X and the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500X as you will with the Honda HR-V, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 500X is somewhat more expensive than the Honda HR-V. 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 500X is much higher than that for the Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Honda HR-V. The FIAT 500X is slightly shorter than the Honda HR-V, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the FIAT 500X does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda HR-V.

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

Performance
The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the FIAT 500X and the Honda HR-V. The FIAT 500X has significantly less cargo capacity than the Honda HR-V.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500X than that of the Honda HR-V.
