2015 BMW 435 vs. 2014 Porsche Cayman Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 435 as you will with the Porsche Cayman, 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 435 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Cayman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 435 and the Porsche Cayman have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 435 is a little wider than the Porsche Cayman, 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 435, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Cayman.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 435 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.

Handling
The BMW 435 has about the same turning radius as the Porsche Cayman, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 435 is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Cayman.

Utility
The BMW 435 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 435 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Porsche Cayman.

Warranty
The BMW 435 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayman.
