The FIAT 500 offers a roomy passenger cabin boasting an impressive 85 cubic feet. The cargo space is undoubtedly much more than what meets the eye at 30 cubic feet. On the other hand, the Mini Cooper lumbers behind with a mere 82 cubic feet of passenger space and a boorish 24 cubic feet of cargo space.

The Mini Cooper does offer more color options than the FIAT. In the end, the FIAT offers more space and more entertainment, which is more than enough to give the 2017 FIAT 500 the edge.

2017 FIAT 500 vs MINI Cooper - Driver Visibility

The 2017 FIAT 500 brilliantly offers a diverse lineup of vehicles, so every driver can find the perfect subcompact vehicle for their needs. You can choose the FIAT 500 Abarth for extensive driver excitement or the FIAT 500c Cabrio for an inexpensive soft top subcompact. Regardless of what you choose, you will enjoy a seating position that is high and upright. 

While other subcompacts may leave you feeling as if you are in a bowl, the seating position of the FIAT lends itself to excellent visibility. It even features a built-in spot mirror on the driver's side to help you overcome the notorious blind spot.
