2018 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2018 BMW 5 Series

The 2018 Porsche Cayman has a rich history in offering excellent reliability, with tons of features to suit your convenience. BMW 5-series is an equally good choice with engaging performance and opulent cabin. Let us do some comparative analysis and see which one has a better deal to offer.

Design & Style

The 2018 BMW 5-series is a 5-seater vehicle with comfortable front seats on offer. You can find a perfect driving position the moment you step in. The rear seats are spacious and relaxing as well, but you don’t get the same level of comfort. The interior has strong build quality, with sophisticated design and quality materials on offer.

The 2018 Porsche Cayman comes standard with leather upholstery and can seat up to 2 people. Sounds perfect for a couple right? The interior designing is more inclined towards a sports car rather than a sedan. There are plenty of quality materials, and other options like mahogany, aluminum, and supple leather.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 BMW 5-series is pretty good in technology with a 10.2-inch infotainment system with a control knob or voice commands mounted between the seats. You have navigation system included, but no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay in the base model. For safety, you have the BMW’s Active Protection System, adaptive LED headlights and a rearview camera.

The 2018 Porsche Cayman comes standard with a PCM Interface with a 7-inch display touch screen. The navigation system is optional, while USB ports and Bluetooth are standard. For the sound system, you can either choose 10-speaker Bose or 12-speaker Burmester. A couple of safety features in the base model include a rearview camera and parking sensors, both front and rear.


One of the most important factors in determining the true potential of a vehicle is its performance. The options range from a plug-in hybrid to 600 HP V8. Although it makes for a thrilling drive, the vehicle is not as fuel efficient as the 2018 Cayman. This outstanding model by Porsche come standard with a 300 HP turbocharged engine that offers smooth acceleration and exceptional handling. With the six-speed manual transmission and no turbo lag, you are simply going to enjoy driving this vehicle.

The Bottom Line

With the above comparison, it seems clear that the BMW 5-series is a great choice for a car lover. However, Porsche has got to offer a few attributes that will make you fall over it. If you are looking for a great investment, make sure you are investing in a car like Porsche 718 Cayman that has everything to suit your requirement.
