Trim: BOXSTER

Entry-level Boxsters come with very little as standard. You get air-con, 18in alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, Alcantara seat trim, automatic lights, an six-speaker/ 110-watt stereo, and a 7.0in infotainment screen with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. Climate control, heated seats, parking sensors and cruise control are all on the options list.

Engine: 2.0

Entry-level Boxsters comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 296bhp. That's enough for 0-62mph in as little as 4.7sec (with a PDK automatic gearbox fitted) and it revs out cleanly, but is really into its stride by 3000rpm. It's smoother than the 2.5-litre Boxster S, but still sounds quite unappealing. It's worth looking at because the Boxster package is so good, but if you're looking for sports car thrills with a sweeter engine for the same money, we'd take a serious look at the lovely Alpine A110 instead.
