If you’re shopping for an affordable, efficient small car, you’ve probably checked out the 2018 Fiat 500 and weighed it against competitors like the VW Golf, and we’re here to show you how it leaves the 2018 Ford Fiesta looking boring. Whether cruising around Orland Park or simply parked in your drive, the Fiat 500 has style. They might both be hatchbacks, but that’s where they differ; discover the power and amenities that give the Fiat the edge below.

The Power to Move

  • The Fiat 500 specs include a 1.4 L turbocharged engine that offers up to 160 hp and 170 lb-ft of peak torque.
  • The Fiesta’s 1.6 L 4-cylinder engine falls short, capable of just 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque.

As if that’s not enough, the 2018 Fiat 500 mpg ratings make it easy to justify a joyride to show off your new car, earning as much as 38 mpg on the highway and 31 mpg in the city.

Amenities to Delight

An Italian-engineered vehicle like the 2018 Fiat 500 doesn’t just look nicer than the 2018 Ford Fiesta – it has more to offer to your Mokena commute, too. Standard features include:

  • Heated mirrors
  • Bluetooth phone and audio
  • Speed-sensitive windshield wipers
  • 7-inch color driver display

The 2018 Ford Fiesta would require upgrades to be on similar footing to the Fiat 500, and even then, there are a few amenities you just won’t find on the Ford.
