2016 FIAT 500X VS 2016 Mazda3 5-Door
FIAT of Tacoma Compares the 2016 FIAT 500X With the 2016 Mazda3 5-Door
The FIAT 500X is a truly impressive vehicle that combines a go-anywhere mentality with the unmistakable design that has made FIAT loved the world over. Choosing the FIAT 500X is more than just selecting a new car: you also make a statement. The 2016 Mazda3 5-Door is also an impressive car, to be sure–but it just can’t match that FIAT flair. Keep on reading to learn more!
2016 FIAT 500X vs 2016 Mazda3 5-Door: Design
There’s no debating that the Mazda3 is a sleek and sporty hatchback. However, sleek and sporty are no longer that distinctive–even the latest Honda and Toyota hatchbacks go for this look. Rather than aiming for the ultra-sleek lines that will doubtless look as silly in a couple decades as the boxy cars from the 80s look today, FIAT aims for the classically sporty look with the 500X. What’s more, the 500X is more spacious than the Mazda3 5-Door, with 100.1 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to the 96.4 cubic feet in the Mazda3.
2016 FIAT 500X vs 2016 Mazda3 5-Door: Performance
The 2016 FIAT 500X comes standard with a 1.4-liter I4 engine–and, though upgrades are available, even this base engine generates 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This is more than the base engine on the Mazda3, which puts out 155 horsepower and only 150 pound-feet of torque. In addition, the 500X has available all-wheel drive for additional control, while the Mazda3 is only available as a front-wheel-drive vehicle.
2016 FIAT 500X vs 2016 Mazda3 5-Door: Safety Features
When it comes to safety, you don’t have to worry with either choice: both the 2016 FIAT 500X and the 2016 Mazda3 have received the Top Safety Pick+ rating from IIHS, making them some of the safest vehicles you could choose. However, the available all-wheel drive on the 500X delivers extra safety as you will be able to handle a greater diversity of road conditions and better react to surprises.
