Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Niro than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Niro offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500X, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Kia Niro, 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). The FIAT 500X is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Niro.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Kia Niro. The FIAT 500X is slightly shorter than the Kia Niro, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The FIAT 500X has a larger turning radius than the Kia Niro, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Kia Niro.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the FIAT 500X transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Niro.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the FIAT 500X than that of the Kia Niro.
