2016 Porsche Boxster vs. 2016 Mazda Miata
Orland Park, Naperville, and Tinley Park drivers looking for a convertible coupe that stands out above the rest have their match with the 2016 Porsche Boxster! It delivers supercharged smooth performance, and has all of the exterior, interior, and technological luxuries that make it a premium sports car. Porsche’s classic appeal and infallible reputation is especially evident when this amazing car is compared with the 2016 Mazda Miata, for which it shows clear-cut superiority.
The 2016 Porsche Boxster purrs on the road, with a 300-hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 280 lb. ft. torque and VarioCam Plus for the base model, and a 350-hp 2.5L BOXER® engine with 309 lb. ft. torque and variable turbine geometry for the S trim. They’re powered by RWD six-speed manual or seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung transmission, and have optional Sport Chrono modes, and Porsche Stability Management.
For its base, Sport, Club, and Grand Touring trims, the 2016 Mazda Miata has a 155-hp 2.0L 1-4 engine with 148 lb. ft. torque, RWD six-speed manual transmission, stability control, traction control, and electronic brake assistance.
More Elegant Features
There are notable differences between the design and comforts of the 2016 Boxster and 2016 Miata:
- 2016 Porsche Boxster: At 50.5” high, 172.2” long, 70.9” wide, and with a 97.4” wheelbase, the 2016 Porsche Boxster immediately makes a distinct impression. Tinted windshield, heated power adjustable mirrors, front fascia with integrated air intakes, Bi-Xenon™ headlights with LED daytime running lights, stainless steel central tailpipe, and 18-19” Porsche design wheels also command attention. Even the colors direct attention, with leather interior options including Bordeaux Red and Agate grey, and exterior choices including Rhodium Silver or Graphite Blue Metallic, Racing Yellow, and Lava Orange, and roadster tops in red, brown, blue, or black. Fourteen or Eighteen-way power adjustable seats with memory settings are available.
- 2016 Mazda Miata: The 2016 Mazda Miata creates a lesser statement, being 48.6”-48.8” high (depending on its 16”-17” wheels), 68.3” wide, 154.1” long, and with a 90.9” wheelbase. Cloth trimmed seats and reclining bucket seats are not as contoured and elegant as in the Boxster, and the exterior doesn’t have the same flair. The paint and interior color options are also not as lustrous.
The Boxster’s Porsche Communication Management system includes 360° displays, Porsche Car Connect with safety, security, and remote functions, Apple CarPlay®, speed limit indicator, front and rear ParkAssist, two USB ports, two SD card readers, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Mazda’s driver assistance is not as innovative, and it doesn’t have the same caliber as the Boxster’s Porsche Side Impact Protection System.
