2020 FIAT 500L vs. Its Competition

2020 Fiat 500L Trekking
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Fiat 500L exists in the space between many segments: it’s not a compact hatchback, not quite a crossover, and not really a wagon.

The Honda HR-V offers crossover ride height, available all-wheel-drive, and standard active safety features with plenty of cargo room.

The two-tone Toyota C-HR has some quirk in a more appealing overall package.

The Kia Soul is recently redesigned and will appeal to those looking for a tall hatchback with funky styling.

The Mini Countryman checks many of the same boxes as the Fiat but with better quality and a much higher price.

Finally, the Hyundai Kona is a subcompact crossover with a nice balance of quirky style and punchy capability.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Fiat 500L has largely been forgotten by American buyers, and for valid reasons.
The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.
The 2020 Kia Soul compact hatchback is proof of life among small, inexpensive cars.
It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.
The 2020 Toyota C-HR’s updated styling is less polarizing, and it now includes both Apple and Android smartphone support.
