Both the 500e and the Nexo have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front-wheel drive, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and rearview cameras.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the 500e gets better fuel mileage than the Nexo (121 city/103 hwy vs. 65 city/58 hwy).

Tires and Wheels

The 500e’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Nexo’s standard 60 series tires.

Suspension and Handling

For better maneuverability, the 500e’s turning circle is 5.4 feet tighter than the Nexo’s (31.3 feet vs. 36.7 feet).


The Fiat 500e may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 1000 pounds less than the Hyundai Nexo.

The 500e is 3 feet, 5.5 inches shorter than the Nexo, making the 500e easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The 500e is 9.1 inches narrower than the Nexo, making the 500e easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.


The 500e’s front power windows lower with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Nexo’s passenger windows don’t open automatically.

The 500e’s speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Nexo’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.
