2022 Porsche Boxster vs. 2022 Nissan Maxima

Performance-wise, the 2022 Porsche Boxster is overall a lock for the top slot on the list. It is the perfect car for thrill-seekers who do not want to compromise on comfort in exchange for more cabin space. For more details, please see the side-by-side comparison of the Boxster vs. the 2022 Nissan Maxima in the article below.

Design & Style

If you want the best of both worlds in a vehicle, there is no better choice than the Porsche Boxster. The walls and ceilings of the cabin have all been adorned with high-quality materials, which can be found everywhere. Both the fit and the materials from which it is constructed are exceptional, resulting in a high-quality finish. The vehicle’s seats, which can accommodate up to two people, are upholstered in soft leather. Heating is incorporated as a basic feature on both of its seats.

The Nissan Maxima boasts a luxe cabin which lacks in space. Its interior is covered in materials that are soft to the touch and its seats are covered in leather that is premium and supple. The car is built to support five people. However, its rear row feels a little cramped for even 2 adults. Children travel more comfortably in the back row especially for further distances.

Technology & Safety

The Boxster comes with many tech features that range from satellite and HD radios, a 7 inch touchscreen, 2 USB ports, 6 speakers, Apple CarPlay, to Bluetooth. Safety tech of the car includes lane change assist, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and auto high beams.

The Nissan Maxima features a number of technological advances such as Android and Apple sync, navigation, touchscreen, USB ports, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, and speakers. Safety features of the car include monitoring of blind spot, attentiveness, rear traffic, and more.


The Boxster is both agile and adept with no bad engine options. Its base model runs on a turbo-four engine that can produce 300 hp and 280 lbft of torque. Its estimated EPA rating can fetch 20 mpg and 26 mpg for city and highway respectively.

The Nissan Maxima is just as powerful, delivering 300 hp from its 3.5L V6 engine which can get a gas mileage of 20 mpg and 30 mpg for city and highway travels.

The Bottom Line

The Porsche Boxster is a significant competitor, thanks in large part to its superior performance characteristics and handling. Additionally, it has a luxurious cabin, thanks to the use of a range of premium materials on the surfaces and trims. Alternative high-end sports cars within the same class may be too costly, but the Boxster is a far more affordable option.
