Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the FIAT 500L than the Toyota 86. The FIAT 500L will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 86.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the FIAT 500L as you will with the Toyota 86, as they get the same number of miles per 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). Based on MSRP, the FIAT 500L is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota 86. 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 Toyota 86.

The FIAT 500L is a little wider than the Toyota 86, 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 500L takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota 86.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota 86.

Handling
The FIAT 500L has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota 86, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
The FIAT 500L offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 86, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the FIAT 500L will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota 86.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500L than that of the Toyota 86.
