2015 BMW 640 vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Porsche Boxster, the BMW 640 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 640 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche Boxster, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The BMW 640 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Porsche Boxster, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 640 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 640 is much wider than the Porsche Boxster, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 640, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Boxster.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 640 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Boxster.

Handling
The BMW 640 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Boxster, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Boxster.

Utility
The BMW 640 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 640 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Boxster.

Warranty
The BMW 640 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Boxster.
