Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Outlander than in the FIAT 500X, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the FIAT 500X and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
With the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the FIAT 500X will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander. 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 500X is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
The FIAT 500X is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Outlander. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the FIAT 500X is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. The FIAT 500X has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The FIAT 500X has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The FIAT 500X has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the FIAT 500X is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
