2018 Porsche 718 Boxster vs. 2018 Ford Mustang

The 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster is an elegant roadster with all the attributes of a luxury Porsche car, while the 2018 Ford Mustang is also a favorite option for many car buyers. It can often be a difficult choice to pick one of these, as both of them are tough rivals. This head-to-head comparison will give you a fair idea which one to go for.

Design & Style

There is nothing much to separate both the models in terms of exterior, as both of them have an aesthetic appeal. The 2018 Ford Mustang is a 4-seater car with extremely comfortable and supportive seats, along with excellent outward visibility. The rear seats are quite small and the interior is not one of the finest you will find for a given price point. This is where the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster is a clear winner with its contemporary and stylish appeal. The small size of the vehicle is just an illusion, as it has plenty of legroom and headroom on offer, once you climb inside.

Technology & Safety

Speaking of the technology, the 2018 Ford Mustang comes standard with a Sync voice-controlled connectivity system, a 6-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Bluetooth and MyKey. You need to upgrade for features like Sync 3 infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which is a big letdown.

On the other hand, the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster comes equipped with an infotainment system, including a 7-inch touch screen.  Automatic climate control, 6-speaker audio system and Bluetooth are some other notable features. The intuitive system has easy-to-use controls, with the touch screen offering crisp graphics. Parking sensors and a rearview camera are a couple of active safety features included in the car.


For the Ford Mustang, it has an EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers an output of 310 HP, making the car move quickly. However, it certainly cannot hang with the fuel efficiency rating compared to other rivals such as Porsche Boxster, which offers multiple powertrain options. The base model comes with a turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine that delivers smooth acceleration. It hardly takes 5 seconds for the car to touch the speed of 60 mph.

The Bottom Line

Both the models are categorized under luxury vehicles, not only for their brand value, but also their performance. However, the 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster has an edge in terms of interior amenities and superior technology. This doesn’t take Ford Mustang out of the equation, but for the given price point, you would certainly pick a better offer.
