Comparison Review

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

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 Sportage, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the FIAT 500X will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sportage. 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 Sportage.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500X is much slimmer than the Kia Sportage, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500X, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sportage.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the FIAT 500X transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Sportage.

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

Performance
With the FIAT 500X, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Kia Sportage. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the FIAT 500X and the Kia Sportage.

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 Sportage. The FIAT 500X has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Sportage.

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