Porsche aficionados look forward to personalizing their new Porsches nearly as much as driving them
Kelley Blue Book

filled this Boxster with myriad delights like ... new sound and nav systems
Motor Trend



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."

Conclusion

The 2010 Porsche Boxster offers plenty of standard features to satisfy, but the extensive options list will enthrall the enthusiast.

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.
