2018 Porsche 718 Boxster vs. 2018 Cadillac ATS-V

It is always fun searching for the next car to bring home with you. Much more than the delight brought about by the entire experience, some car buyers take things a little bit more seriously than the rest. That is understandable considering the amount of cash that is allocated for the endeavor. For those of you who have been thinking of buying either the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster or the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, this comparison will surely help.

Design & Style

Those 18-inch wheels in the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster are made perfect for the entire design of this car. Consider how this has also equally complemented the sturdy construction of the ride on the outside, and you will be delighted to own it even more. Inside it, you will notice how smartly the cabin has been designed. Even with a lot of buttons right there, you will see they have been set in the right places.

As for the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, the car comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels. There is also a promise of room for passengers and the driver, of course. It has been gifted with a lot of buttons too, but these ones are far more difficult to use than that found in the Boxster.

Technology & Safety

You will truly admire the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster once you discover that it has been gifted with beautiful technologies. The Android Auto inclusion with the infotainment system is truly one to admire. Power-heated seats, climate controls and the soft-folding power top is indeed one more to consider with the purchase. Of course, the options to activate safety features like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring is simply enticing.

When it comes to the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, you will notice that it has been struggling in the technology and safety arena. Topping the disappointment is its touchscreen interface which is older and more traditional when compared to its rivals. Safety-wise, you may get a lot if you are willing to pay the price.


Under the hood of these two cars are two different engines from which the cars get their power. Inside the ATS-V, you will find a thrilling V6 engine whose power is enough to operate 464 horses at a torque of 445lb-ft. Despite that promise, it is a no because it lacks the same fuel efficiency covered by the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under the hood of the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster. This same engine in the Porsche allows it to reach a yield of up to 300 horsepower and 280lb-ft.

The Bottom Line

It is thrilling to be given the chance to take a look at these two cars. Now, you have even realized which one is better over the other. No doubt, that will be no less than the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster.
