2014 Porsche Boxster Safety

8.0
Safety
The 2014 Porsche Boxster hasn't been crash tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which is common with low-volume, expensive sports cars.

Porsche has engineered a great deal of safety into the Boxster, however, starting with a rigid chassis; dual front, side, curtain, and thorax airbags; anti-lock brakes; and very capable stability and traction control.

Visibility is not generally an issue with the Boxster, even with the top up, though shorter drivers may find it more difficult to see over the rear quarters. There's no backup camera available for the Boxster, but rear parking sensors can be fitted.

Ample safety equipment and the 2014 Porsche Boxster's inherent maneuverability offset the lack of crash test results.
