New Alpine A110 S vs new Porsche 718 Cayman T: costs
The Alpine A110 S and Porsche 718 Cayman T promise to be even sharper to drive than their 'regular' siblings. But which has the finer edge?...
Buying and owning
Costs, equipment, safety
The A110 is priced £3215 higher than the Cayman. However, the tables are turned when you factor in all ownership costs over three years; the A110 is almost £6000 cheaper, thanks to superior resale values and fuel economy.
Those resale values also help to make it cheaper on PCP finance: £665 per month, compared with £687 for the Cayman on a three-year deal with an annual limit of 10,000 miles and a £5000 deposit.
Finally, Alpine gives you more luxuries, including climate control, cruise control and leather upholstery. It’s just disappointing that neither car has automatic emergency braking, given that this important safety feature is fitted to most £20k hatchbacks.
