Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Taos 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 Volkswagen Taos.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Taos, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the FIAT 500X will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Taos. 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 Volkswagen Taos.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500X is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Taos, 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 Volkswagen Taos.

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

Handling
The FIAT 500X has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Taos, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Taos.

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

Warranty
The FIAT 500X comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Taos.
