Comparison Review

Comfort
The FIAT 500L offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Subaru Impreza. The Subaru Impreza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500L.

Convenience
With the Subaru Impreza you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500L, 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 500L is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Impreza. 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 500L is much higher than that for the Subaru Impreza.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500L is a little wider than the Subaru Impreza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The FIAT 500L is slightly shorter than the Subaru Impreza, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru Impreza.

Handling
The FIAT 500L has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500L is somewhat more powerful than the Subaru Impreza.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500L and the Subaru Impreza. The FIAT 500L has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Impreza.

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