Comparison Review

Comfort
The FIAT 500X offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Kicks, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Kicks 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500X as you will with the Nissan Kicks, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Kicks, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is a little wider than the Nissan Kicks, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the FIAT 500X takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Kicks.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500X greatly out-muscles the Nissan Kicks.

Powertrain
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 Nissan Kicks.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the FIAT 500X and the Nissan Kicks. The FIAT 500X has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Kicks.
