Lovecars Takes on the FIAT 500, Honda e, and MINI Cooper SE

The FIAT 500, the Honda e, and the MINI Cooper SE are three very similar models. The FIAT 500 is the one with the widest range. On the one hand, it is available with three bodies (three-door sedan; 3 + 1, which adds a small counter-opening door on the right side to improve access to the rear seats; and Cabrio); on the other, it is offered in two mechanical configurations.

For its part, the Honda e is only marketed with a five-door body and a 35.5 kWh capacity battery that provides a range of 136 miles. However, you can choose between two powertrains.

The MINI Cooper SE is only available with a three-door body, its powertrain being the same for all finishes (S, M, L, XL): a 184 hp (135 kW) and 270 Nm (0 to 60 MPH in 7.3 seconds), a 32.6 kWh capacity battery (110 miles), and a charging system of 11 kW in alternating and 50 kW in continuous.

To check which of the three is the best buy, the YouTube channel Lovecars has made an interesting comparison between them. In the FIATs case, the tested version has the 117 hp and 42 kWh powertrain, while the Honda has the 154 hp engine. What are the testers’ conclusions after testing the cars?

Who is the winner of this Italian-Anglo-Japanese duel? The verdict is left to the viewers’ discretion.
