2017 FIAT 500X vs 2017 Jeep Renegade - Springfield, MO

Fiat 500X versus Jeep Renegade 

Some might wonder what the FIAT 500X and Jeep Renegade have to offer individually. They share everything from a platform to a powertrain due to being offered by the same umbrella company. Does either of them have an advantage over the other?  

Up-To-Date Innovation

The current model of the Jeep Renegade was unveiled in 2016, and as a result, there are little changes between the 2016 model year and the current year. However, the 2017 FIAT 500X is all-new from the ground up, with the latest features and tech available on the market.

Fuel Economy

Because they're made by the same parent company, the 500X and the Renegade have almost identical powertrains. Despite this, the 500X boasts a slight advantage in fuel economy, with a fuel rating of up to 34 mpg on the highway in comparison to the Renegade's 31 mpg highway rating.

Driving Experience

 Again, despite the fact that the Jeep Renegade and FIAT 500X are on almost identical platforms, the 500X is praised by critics for having more poise and rigidity over bumps and around turns. This adds an extra sense of security and enjoyment to the 500X's driving experience.

While it comes close between the 500X and the Renegade, it's obvious that the FIAT 500X was engineered with more sophistication and refinement. Pair that sophistication with the 500X's traditionally attractive exterior compared to the Renegade's quirky, trendy looks and you have a clear winner.
