2013 BMW 135 vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 135, drivers may find the Porsche Boxster a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Porsche Boxster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 135, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 135 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Boxster. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW 135 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 135 is much slimmer than the Porsche Boxster, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 135 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche Boxster.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 135 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Boxster.

Handling
The BMW 135 has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Boxster, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 135 is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Boxster.

Utility
The BMW 135 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Boxster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 135 has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Boxster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW 135 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Boxster.
