2020 FIAT 500L vs. Its Competition

2020 Fiat 500L Lounge
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.
