2015 Porsche Cayman vs. 2016 BMW M235 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Porsche Cayman will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW M235, 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 Porsche Cayman will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW M235, 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 M235 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Porsche Cayman is a little wider than the BMW M235, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Porsche Cayman is slightly shorter than the BMW M235, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Porsche Cayman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW M235.

Handling
The Porsche Cayman has about the same turning radius as the BMW M235, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Porsche Cayman and the BMW M235.

Utility
The Porsche Cayman has less seating than the BMW M235, making the BMW M235 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche Cayman has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW M235.

Warranty
The Porsche Cayman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M235.
