2017 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. 2016 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

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.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar F-TYPE as you will with the Porsche Boxster, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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. In this case, the Jaguar F-TYPE will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Boxster.

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.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche Boxster.

The Jaguar F-TYPE has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Boxster, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-TYPE is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Boxster.

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.

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