Expert Quotes:

The folding soft top remains, but it has been completely redesigned with an even larger heated glass window and improved acoustic absorption.
Autoblog

The quality of the interior’s plastic parts is impressive and makes the optional Leather package seem unnecessary.
Car and Driver

Inside, there is a little extra room thanks to the longer wheelbase and also because the pedals have been moved slightly farther back, a neat trick that provides additional legroom.
Automobile Magazine

The ride is firm but seldom jarring, and the handling doesn't get much better than this until you start looking at sports cars with six-figure price tags.
Edmunds

The 2014 Boxster's cabin is surprisingly quiet with the top up and triumphantly alive with it down.
Kelley Blue Book

Last year's all-new Boxster improved on all of the faults of the previous model, making a quieter, more comfortable cabin with better materials and more standard and available equipment.

The Boxster retains its soft top, unlike most of its competition, and reaps certain benefits, including light weight, no consumption of storage space, and the ability to open and close the electrically operated top at speeds up to 30 mph. Of course, the soft top isn't as robust or secure as a folding hard top.

Both seats are comfortable, with surprising room for a compact two-seat sports car. There's enough adjustability to suit the vast majority of body types and heights. There isn't much space to stow gear in the passenger compartment, and the two trunks (one up front, one out back) split their combined 10 cubic feet of cargo space, limiting the size of items that can be transported.

A 7-inch high-resolution touch screen that gives access to audio, navigation, and other Porsche Communication Management systems. Recent improvements have made this system much more intuitive and user-friendly.

While noise from wind, tire, and engine sources have all been reduced in the new Boxster, it's still a mid-engined sports car, which is to say, when you're pushing the car hard or driving near triple-digit speeds, you'll be bathed in the sounds of the car at work. When not so close to the bleeding edge, however, the Boxster's overall volume are greatly reduced compared to the previous version, especially with the top up.

Conclusion

Comfortable and quieter than it used to be, the 2014 Porsche Boxster is a well-appointed luxury two-seater.

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.
