Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Renegade than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Renegade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500X.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500X as you will with the Jeep Renegade, 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 Jeep Renegade. 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 FIAT 500X and the Jeep Renegade have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500X is much slimmer than the Jeep Renegade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the FIAT 500X takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Renegade.

Handling
The FIAT 500X has the same turning radius as the Jeep Renegade, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the FIAT 500X and the Jeep Renegade.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the FIAT 500X transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Renegade.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500X than that of the Jeep Renegade.
