2019 Jaguar F-Type 2.0 L Convertible vs Porsche Boxster Convertible

The 2019 Jaguar F-Type 2.0-Liter Convertible and 2019 Porsche Boxster Convertible are two options that often appear in the shortlists of people shopping for a luxury convertible. Both of these cars have all the characteristics of a great convertible, from head-turning styling to sporty handling. However, the Jaguar may have a slight advantage over the Porsche in terms of performance and feature content. Discover the differences between the 2019 Jaguar F-Type Convertible and 2019 Porsche Boxster Convertible.



The Jaguar F-Type Convertible is fitted with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that serves up 296 horsepower, while the Porsche Boxster's base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is rated at 300 horsepower. Despite delivering slightly less horsepower, the Jaguar provides 15 more pound-feet of torque than its rival.

Also, the Jaguar F-Type comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission for faster acceleration and better fuel economy. The Porsche Boxster only has a seven-speed automatic transmission. To improve handling and traction around corners and on wet and slippery surfaces, the Jaguar offers all-wheel drive as an option. All-wheel drive is not available for the Porsche.

If you regularly drive in conditions that cause your car to drift sideways, you will appreciate the Jaguar F-Type Convertible's drift compensation steering system, which makes it easier for you to keep your vehicle straight. The Porsche Boxster Convertible does not offer this system. The Jaguar is also easier to maneuver because its turning circle is 1 foot smaller than the Porsche's.


The wheelbase of the 2019 Jaguar F-Type is 5.8 inches longer than that of the 2019 Porsche Boxster, resulting in a smoother and more stable ride. For even greater stability, the Jaguar's average track is 3.3 inches wider than its rival's.

Luxury & Convenience

Both the Jaguar F-Type Convertible and the Porsche Boxster Convertible offer excellent comfort and convenience. However, the Jaguar has several features that you will not find in the Porsche. Firstly, it comes standard with a remote-start system, which allows you to warm up the engine and cabin from inside your home. Also, the car offers a keyless remote system for lowering its windows from a distance, which is especially useful on a hot day. Another notable feature is the optional Park Assist system, which enables the car to perform parallel or reverse parking by itself.

There are also some features that are standard in the Jaguar F-Type and optional in the Porsche Boxster, including memory driver seat and easy-entry system. The Jaguar also offers a memory front-passenger seat as standard equipment.


If you choose the 2019 Jaguar F-Type Convertible, you will receive a five-year or 60,000-mile warranty that covers the whole car and includes emergency roadside assistance. The Porsche Boxster's warranty only lasts for four years or 50,000 miles. Additionally, the Jaguar comes with complimentary maintenance for five years or 60,000 miles, while the Porsche only offers free maintenance for one year or 10,000 miles.
