Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler 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
The Jeep Wrangler requires fewer stops at the gas station than the FIAT 500X, making it more convenient to drive.

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 FIAT 500X will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler. 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 Wrangler have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500X is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Wrangler.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the FIAT 500X doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the FIAT 500X will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500X has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

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

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