There's more space inside the Boxster than in some darty sportscars--and far more trunk up front.

The Boxster's work environment is snug where it needs to be, and spacious where it counts.

Even the base chairs are well-formed, but the Boxster's available sport seats are well-bolstered, too. Foot room is fine, and the center stack of easy-to-use controls doesn't rob too much knee room.

Ergonomics haven't been Porsche's strong suit, but the controls in the Boxster at least are conveniently placed--the cockpit's not that big, after all. The audio system still has too many buttons to be truly user-friendly, though.

Storage space inside is minimal. Twin trunks, front and back, trunks team up for 9.9 cubic feet of total stow space--4.6 cubes in back and 5.3 cubes in front.

In all but the Spyder, the power convertible top is easy to use. The Spyder gets a top all its own, and it's more an emergency rain guard, manually operated, with much less of the standard Boxster's thick soundproofing and rich lining.

A final point about the Boxster's comfort: there's plenty of road and wind noise for two people. If you can't tolerate a totally immersive driving experience, ears included, the Boxster simply isn't for you. Drivers that love the wrap-around feel of the Boxster, glorious engine noise and all, will soak it all up as atmosphere.

 

Conclusion

There's more space inside the Boxster than in some darty sportscars--and far more trunk up front.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
