2019 Porsche 718 Boxster vs. 2019 BMW M2

The 2019 BMW M2 is a popular auto with all the features and attributes of a luxury car model, while the Porsche Boxster remains a popular choice as well among luxury car buyers in New York. It can be difficult to pick one of the two, as they are tough competitors. With this comparison, you will get to know why Porsche is a recommended choice for many car enthusiasts across the world.

Design & Style

The 2019 BMW M2 is a 4-seater vehicle that is ideally suited for only two passengers. While compact sports cars are not ideal travel companions, and M2 suffers from a small center-console storage bin. You get all the excitement behind the wheels, but the low-quality interior spoils the party. It is littered with faux-suede trim and racy carbon fiber, but the finishing is not up to the mark.

On the other hand, the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster has been well defined with a modern appeal that goes beyond the convention. Don’t go by the appearance of the vehicle, as there is plenty of space inside offering great convenience to the passengers.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 M2 comes with a standard iDrive infotainment system featuring an 8.8-inch touchscreen that has an average response time. Android Auto is not available in the base model. The infotainment screen is angled towards the driver, on top of the dash. Some other key features include voice recognition and Bluetooth.

The 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster comes standard with infotainment system featuring Bluetooth, six-speaker audio system and a 7-inch display. With crisp graphics and responsive screen, the controls are quite user-friendly. Standard safety features include a rearview camera and parking sensors.


The BMW M2 inherits the engine from M3 and M4, but maximum HP is detuned from 444 to 405 HP. This is coupled with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, with an option to upgrade to 7-speed dual clutch automatic. In terms of performance, we have a better choice in the 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster. With multiple engine options, Boxster offers smooth acceleration, and it can easily touch high speeds in seconds. Also, it has a higher fuel efficiency rating compared to other vehicles of its class.

The Bottom Line

From the above comparison, it is quite clear that the 2019 Porsche Boxster certainly has an upper hand with a couple of additional attributes. The brand lives up to its expectation by paying great attention to detail in designing a masterpiece like this one. If you are planning to make an investment this year, make sure you choose Porsche 718 Boxster over BMW M2.
