The best car in Rocket League 2020 is still the Octane, but there are plenty of other serviceable options.
Rocket League's free-to-play update, which arrived Sept. 23, presumably added to Rocket League's already-massive player base. While players that have been around long enough to receive some Legacy bonuses should already have established their main car, new players may be overwhelmed at the number of cars to experiment with. We'll help you try to sort through your garage with our five recommended bodies.
Best Car in Rocket League 2020: 5 Best Options
Since there aren't any major stat differences between cars in Rocket League, players can be successful with any of them. Stick with what works for you, but here are the five best options for those looking to find a good car:
The Octane has always been on top, and will probably remain so for eternity. It has the perfect blend of height and maneuverability, albeit with a slightly narrow body. You can't go wrong with the Octane.
The Dominus has long been a sought-after car body, and for good reason. It is extremely wide, making it easy to connect with the ball whether on the ground or in the air. Despite its width, it still maneuvers well. The only knock on this car is its flatness, but that doesn't prevent it from being a top option in the game.
The breakout is very similar to the Dominus, just with a little more height and a little less width. If the Dominus doesn't do it for you, give the Breakout a try.
The Merc is a big body and a great option for beginners that are struggling to connect with the ball. This car is vastly different from the three above it, being more similar to a UPS truck than a sports car. With a body like this, it's almost harder not to hit the ball.
The Mantis is one of the flattest cars in the game, with its wheels almost being taller than its body. This car is similar to the Batmobile — flat and maneuverable.
