Design & Style

There is much to love in the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster along the lines of design and style. First on the list is the fact that it has been gifted with an exterior that is stunning even from first glance. Look closely and you will find out that the grille assembly and the tires were made to make it look even more majestic. Inside it, you will appreciate the amount of space that it has as well. A bonus is the inclusion of a soft-power folding top which makes it one of the frontrunners in the world of sports cars.

As for the 2018 BMW M2, you will also appreciate it for its beauty. Its sportiness makes it rugged but its modernity defines its aesthetics. The fusion of these two things gives it a sense of balance at least in the exterior. What may upset you is the fact that it lacks the same customization that you can enjoy from other cars, the Boxster included.

Technology & Safety

There is a lot of things to appreciate too when it comes to technology and safety features in the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster. Consider the fact that the audio system is a plus to its already user-friendly infotainment interface. On top of all other driver safety aids, you also get to enjoy features like power-heated seats and integrated climate controls.

There is also a lot of things to love in the 2018 BMW M2 when it comes to this aspect. The most notable of all these features is the inclusion of the user-friendly infotainment system. It lacks support for smartphone integration though. You also need to connect to the Connected Drive service in order to integrate apps into the technology. Driver safety aids are also optional.


You will appreciate the fact that the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster has also been gifted with a powerful engine, with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter capacity, that is capable of maximizing power for 300 horses with a torque pegged up to 280lb-ft. The 2018 BMW M2, on the other hand, relies on an inline six cylinder, 3.0-liter engine. This allows it to maximize output of up to 365 horsepower and 343lb-ft of torque. Do not be deceived by the numbers for the M2 though because accelerating will mean having to deal with intrusive road noises.

The Bottom Line

There is really a lot of things to love in the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster. You will love it much better than you would love the 2018 BMW M2.
