Comparison Review

Comfort
The FIAT 500X offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, with comparable 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Convenience
With the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500X, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the FIAT 500X is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross for pulling heavy loads. The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the FIAT 500X is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
