2014 Porsche Cayman vs. 2013 BMW 135 Review

Comparison Review


Convenience
With the Porsche Cayman you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 135, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Porsche Cayman will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 135, 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 Porsche Cayman and the BMW 135 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Cayman is much wider than the BMW 135, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Porsche Cayman takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 135.

Drivetrain
The Porsche Cayman has much less torque than the BMW 135, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Porsche Cayman has a larger turning radius than the BMW 135, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Porsche Cayman has less horsepower than the BMW 135, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Porsche Cayman has less seating than the BMW 135, making the BMW 135 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Cayman will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 135.

Warranty
The Porsche Cayman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 135.
