Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mazda CX-3 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the FIAT 500X, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mazda CX-3 and the FIAT 500X.

Convenience
The Mazda CX-3 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). Clearly, the Mazda CX-3 is a better financial choice over the FIAT 500X, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda CX-3 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the FIAT 500X.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-3 is a little narrower than the FIAT 500X, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Mazda CX-3 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the FIAT 500X.

Drivetrain
The Mazda CX-3 has much lower torque than the FIAT 500X, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mazda CX-3 has a smaller turning radius than the FIAT 500X, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mazda CX-3 has a little less horsepower than the FIAT 500X.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-3 and the FIAT 500X. The Mazda CX-3 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the FIAT 500X.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mazda CX-3 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the FIAT 500X.
