2016 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. 2015 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Porsche Boxster requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Jaguar F-TYPE 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. The Jaguar F-TYPE and the Porsche Boxster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much wider than the Porsche Boxster, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar F-TYPE, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Boxster.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Boxster.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE 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 Jaguar F-TYPE has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche Boxster. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar F-TYPE and the Porsche Boxster. The Jaguar F-TYPE has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Boxster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar F-TYPE than that of the Porsche Boxster.
