The BMW lacks the power-folding soft top in the Boxster, however, plus the former has smaller space in the rear room and headroom that compromises space for taller passengers as well.

For the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster, you will get to enjoy safety and technology features even with its basic trim level. It has USB ports, a Bluetooth interface, and an audio system that is highly technical yet very easy to comprehend with. The power and heated seats as well as the climate control function are both welcome additions to this model.


When it comes to engine performance, the 2018 718 Boxster is a clear winner. While both cars have been designed to operate with the help of a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under the hood, there is a difference in their maximum total output.
