2014 Porsche Boxster Comfort & Quality

9.0
On Comfort & Quality
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.

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

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.
