2017 Fiat 500X

The 2017 Honda HR-V and the 2017 Fiat 500X are both stylish subcompact crossover utility vehicles. Either one should provide the all-season capability and confidence that drivers in the Frankfort and Orland Park areas want, along with the efficiency and versatility that everybody needs. So how do these two models compare side by side? Let’s take a closer look.


The first thing to notice is the difference in price. The Honda HR-V is priced from $19,365 MSRP* in the base LX trim level, while the 2017 Fiat 500X Pop trim starts at $20,000 MSRP*.

Fuel Efficiency

One of your top priorities in this segment is fuel economy, so let’s see how they stack up:

  • The Fiat 500X with a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive achieves up to 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway/25 mpg combined based on EPA estimates*.
  • The Honda HR-V earns up to 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway/31 mpg combined in EPA estimates with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive*.

That’s a big difference when it comes to fuel economy. Just think about how much money that’ll save you in the long run!

Interior Versatility

The Honda HR-V offers more cargo space and more passenger space in some important areas. For example, the Honda has more front and rear head room without the optional moonroof, more rear leg room, and more front and rear shoulder room than the Fiat 500X, so everyone can feel more comfortable in the HR-V. The front-wheel drive HR-V offers 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, and up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seat folded down. The Fiat can only carry 18.5 cubic feet of luggage behind the rear seats, and 50.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.
