Comparison Review

Comfort
The FIAT 500X offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Hyundai Kona, with comparable head- and legroom. The FIAT 500X offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500X as you will with the Hyundai Kona, 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 Hyundai Kona. 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 Hyundai Kona.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Hyundai Kona. When looking at overall length, the FIAT 500X takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Kona.

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

Performance
The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Kona.

Powertrain
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 Hyundai Kona.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the FIAT 500X and the Hyundai Kona. The FIAT 500X has less cargo space than the Hyundai Kona, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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