Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sportage than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. The FIAT 500X offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sportage, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

With the Kia Sportage, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the FIAT 500X, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the FIAT 500X will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sportage.

Since the FIAT 500X is much slimmer than the Kia Sportage, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the FIAT 500X, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sportage.

The FIAT 500X has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Sportage, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

With the FIAT 500X, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Kia Sportage. The FIAT 500X has a little less horsepower than the Kia Sportage.

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

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