2020 FIAT 500X vs. Its Competition

The Buick Encore’s interior and value is enough to warrant serious consideration, while the Honda HR-V is the most practical of the bunch.

If you want a tougher-looking 500X with the same bones, opt for the Jeep Renegade.

Mazda’s CX-3 is stylish and fun-to-drive but on the small side, and the Subaru Crosstrek also offers standard all-wheel-drive, but makes active safety features easier to come by.
