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 Yaris. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the FIAT 500L and the Toyota Yaris in the front seats.

Convenience
The Toyota Yaris requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500L, 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). The FIAT 500L will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Yaris, which has a much lower 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 Destination Charge for the FIAT 500L is much higher than that for the Toyota Yaris.

Dimensions
Since the FIAT 500L is much wider than the Toyota Yaris, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the FIAT 500L, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Yaris.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Yaris.

Handling
The FIAT 500L has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Yaris, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500L has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Yaris. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500L and the Toyota Yaris.

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