2022 FIAT 500X vs. Its Competition

2022 Fiat 500X
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The 500X is built alongside the Jeep Renegade, which is essentially the same vehicle but with toaster-oven styling, a rugged Trailhawk trim level and, ironically, a front-wheel-drive version.

Small SUV shoppers tend to gravitate toward the Subaru Crosstrek, and for good reason thanks to plenty of standard features and reasonable pricing.

The Mazda CX-30 is cramped inside but a hoot to drive, while the Honda HR-V makes terrific use of what space is allotted.

The Hyundai Kona feels more mature than most small crossovers, and it comes in an electric-only model.
