Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-30 than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. The FIAT 500X offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Mazda CX-30 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). The FIAT 500X is somewhat more expensive than the Mazda CX-30. 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 Mazda CX-30.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Mazda CX-30. The FIAT 500X is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-30, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the FIAT 500X transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mazda CX-30.

Handling
The FIAT 500X has a larger turning radius than the Mazda CX-30, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The FIAT 500X has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-30.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the FIAT 500X and the Mazda CX-30. The FIAT 500X has less cargo space than the Mazda CX-30, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500X than that of the Mazda CX-30.
