2017 MINI MINI-Convertible vs. 2016 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the MINI MINI-Convertible and the Porsche Boxster in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Porsche Boxster you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Convertible, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the MINI MINI-Convertible is clearly a better financial choice over 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. The MINI MINI-Convertible carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
Since the MINI MINI-Convertible is much slimmer than the Porsche Boxster, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI MINI-Convertible, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Porsche Boxster.

Drivetrain
The MINI MINI-Convertible has much less torque than the Porsche Boxster, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Convertible is significantly less powerful than the Porsche Boxster. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The MINI MINI-Convertible offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Boxster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The MINI MINI-Convertible has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Boxster, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The MINI MINI-Convertible comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Boxster.
