Kelley Blue Book
filled this Boxster with myriad delights like ... new sound and nav systems
TheCarConnection.com notes that the 2010 Porsche Boxster is well equipped no matter the model. The list of standard equipment is extensive, exceeded only by the options available. Air conditioning is standard on all but the Spyder, as are a CD stereo, rear spoiler, partial-leather upholstery, heated washer nozzles, and locking alloy wheels. An electrically heated rear glass panel prevents fogging or frost accumulation with the top up, a feature Kelly Blue Book points out is standard.
Edmunds likes the 2010 Boxster lineup's "fast-operating power top," pointing out that it "lowers in about 12 seconds." ConsumerGuide also makes note of the standard "variable-intermittent wipers w/heated washer nozzles." Motor Trend calls the available high-tech features like the 2010 Boxster's sound and navigation systems "technical treasures."
But you only get to the best available equipment in the 2010 Porsche Boxster when you dig into the generous options list. Ceramic composite brakes and 19-inch wheels boost performance and looks, while the fully leather-upholstered power heated seats and automatic climate control make for a comfortable cruise. ConsumerGuide appreciates the Sport Chrono package, which enables "controls for modification of throttle, suspension, traction control, and antiskid system."
Kelley Blue Book points out the huge amount of customization available: Porsche offers "an extensive, and expensive, list of options." Not all of those options are flawless, however, as AutoWeek claims that "the 'premium' sound system" is "weak in its ability to tune in and keep FM stations' signals and deliver sound quality." On the other end of the spectrum, Cars.com is especially impressed with the "updated PCM Communication Management option that controls the audio, communication and navigation systems," though the reviewer does say that the upgrade from the base system is "badly needed."
The 2010 Porsche Boxster offers plenty of standard features to satisfy, but the extensive options list will enthrall the enthusiast.
