2019 FIAT 500L vs. Its Competition

2019 Fiat 500L
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2019 Fiat 500L struggles against many competitors, except in price.

The Hyundai Ioniq is an affordable hybrid wagon that is EPA rated around 50 mpg combined.

The Kia Soul offers funky looks, available all-wheel drive, and a bright turbocharged powertrain.

The Honda Fit is a good pick for budget buyers and despite its small size, it’s relatively spacious inside.

The Mini Cooper Countryman is a fully fledged crossover with available all-wheel drive, although it can be expensive.

The Toyota Corolla hatchback is new for 2019 and offers a manual transmission in sportier versions.
