Well..the Tank is a mini MPV and the Vitz is a hatchback. So the two cars are in somewhat different categories in terms of use. The Tank/Roomy design has more headroom, legroom, etc...due to the boxy design. The Tank is in fact a Daihatsu developed car based on the Toyota 1LD concept and is manufactured in one of their plants. It is also sold as the Subaru Justy. 1LD means a single room apartment, so the concept was to make a unified space for the family to travel in :) Since you are comapring the Vitz and the Tank I am guessing you are looking at the 1.0L Vitz.

Engine transmission wise, the Tank comes with the 1KR-VET engine (which is Turbo charged..G-T grades) or the 1KR-FE. The 1.0L Vitz comes with the 1KR-FE engine. The Tank with the Turbo charged engine has a bit more torque and power compared to the Tank and Vitz with 1KR-FE (100hp vs 70hp ? Something like that). Both vehicles come with the K410 CVT transmission.

Apart from that the Tank is a much newer design in terms of body/frame and integrating the safety features in to it (in terms of frame rigidity, placement of crumple zones, etc...). The Vitz on the other hand is a 8 year old design that Toyota keeps on teasing about changing (with a new model) but still hasn't. In the Vitz the safety features were added as a second thought just so that it can meet Japanese safety standards.
