Comparison Review

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 440 as you will with the Porsche 718 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 440 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche 718 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 BMW 440 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 718 Boxster.

The BMW 440 is a little wider than the Porsche 718 Boxster, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the BMW 440, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 718 Boxster.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 440 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche 718 Boxster.

The BMW 440 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 718 Boxster, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The BMW 440 has less horsepower than the Porsche 718 Boxster, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

The BMW 440 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche 718 Boxster, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 440 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche 718 Boxster.

The BMW 440 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 718 Boxster.
