Expert Quotes:

in addition to frontal airbags, the Boxster has side-impact torso airbags in the seat backrests

The Boxster hasn't been subjected to crash testing by either the IIHS or NHTSA, but fatality and injury statistics from accident data show Porsche drivers have historically fared well in accidents or managed to avoid them altogether.

Safety equipment is abundant, with standard anti-lock brakes and stability control, plus front, side, and head-protecting side-impact airbags mounted in the door window sills.

Kelley Blue Book reviewers are most impressed with the Porsche Stability Management System, which doesn't "interfere with your fun during aggressive driving" but does boost safety and confidence with its ability to "bail you out when the fun stops." Edmunds reviewers also praise the 2010 Boxster's inclusion of "antilock disc brakes" and "dual thorax/head side-impact airbags and roll-over safety bars" as standard safety features.

Despite a great connection with the road when the top is down, "top-up visibility is severely limited to the corners and aft" says ConsumerGuide. Edmunds, however, points out that the available "park assist" feature on the Porsche Boxster can help a lot with this, especially in close quarters such as parking lots.

Conclusion

The 2010 Porsche Boxster offers lots of excellent safety features despite the lack of a verified safety rating.

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.
