Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Crosstrek than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Crosstrek 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
With the Subaru Crosstrek, 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). Whether you pick the FIAT 500X or the Subaru Crosstrek, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Subaru Crosstrek.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Subaru Crosstrek. 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 Subaru Crosstrek.

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

Handling
The FIAT 500X has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Crosstrek, 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 Subaru Crosstrek for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the FIAT 500X and the Subaru Crosstrek.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500X than that of the Subaru Crosstrek.
