Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Seltos 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 Kia Seltos.

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

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Kia Seltos. The FIAT 500X is slightly shorter than the Kia Seltos, 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 Kia Seltos.

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

Performance
The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Kia Seltos.

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

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