2014 MINI MINI-Convertible vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the MINI MINI-Convertible as you will with the Porsche Boxster, 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). 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
With its lower torque, the MINI MINI-Convertible doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche Boxster.

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

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.
