The Fiat 500X compact crossover SUV offers Chicago and Naperville drivers access to the advanced safety features and responsive performance features at a price that puts it head and shoulders above competitors like the Mazda CX-3. To demonstrate, we’ve compared both.

Safety and Protection

The Fiat 500X and the Mazda CX-3 both give drivers access to standard safety equipment like:

  • Airbags
  • Height adjustable front shoulder belts
  • Four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS)
  • Fraction control

The warranty of the Fiat protects drivers better as well, providing a full 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty that includes free 24-hour roadside assistance. Mazda only covers the CX-3 for three years or 36,000 miles.

Power and Performance

The Fiat pairs its engine with fully independent front and rear suspension and gas-charged shocks for smoother, more controlled ride. The Mazda is equipped with a semi-independent rear suspension without gas-charged shocks, guaranteeing a stiffer ride.

Standard and Available Features

The compact Fiat 500X has a base price of just $19,995 MSRP. For that low cost, drivers get access to standard and optional features, including:

  • One-touch, power windows
  • Heated exterior mirrors
  • Optional heated steering wheel
  • Optional dual-zone air-conditioning.

Not only will the Mazda cost more with a base price of $20,110 MSRP, but drivers will have to pay extra for amenities and won’t have access to one-touch passenger windows, dual-zone air-conditioning, or a heated steering wheel at any price.
