2015 BMW 428 vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Porsche Boxster, the BMW 428 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 428 as you will with the Porsche Boxster, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 428 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 428 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
The BMW 428 is a little wider than the Porsche Boxster, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the BMW 428, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Boxster.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 428 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche Boxster.

Handling
The BMW 428 has about the same turning radius as the Porsche Boxster, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 428 has less horsepower than the Porsche Boxster, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The BMW 428 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Boxster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 428 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Boxster.

Warranty
The BMW 428 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Boxster.
