Choosing the right car in Rocket League is pretty much essential for successfully climbing the ranks during each Season. Every body comes with its own advantages and disadvantages – as so often in life, there is no perfect solution that every Rocket League player should know.

Nevertheless, some cars are wayyyy cooler and much more popular with the community, because they just feel (subjectively and objectively) better. Here you will find the best Rocket League cars of 2022! We briefly explain some important key factors to look out for and also show which bodies are used by most RL pros.

The Best Cars In Rocket League

What is the best car in Rocket League? Phew, a damn difficult question, after all the selection of bodies is really huge and gets even bigger with each new season. In the end it is always personal preference which car or which Hitbox suits you best. Try to consider not only your own play style, but also your rank.

That said, there are some bodies in Rocket League that are just so beloved by the community – and a few others that are sadly falling behind. Best example: Merc. He's big, fat, and most importantly, clunky. Not many people can handle this style of gameplay. It's a completely different story with the best cars in Rocket League, though...

3. Dominus

Dominus is a standard Rocket League car and at the same time bears the name of probably the second most popular Hitbox in the game. Anyone who has already spent a few hours in Rocket League knows how dangerous Power Shots from a Dominus can be. Sure, the large turning radius and the flat design take some getting used to...

On the other hand, anyone who still has some catching up to do with their flip timing can make up for it with the Dominus. All in all, an extremely chic Battle Car with some amazing offensive qualities – but not quite as flexible as the other two vehicles.

2. Octane

The Octane has been the flagship when it comes to the best cars in Rocket League for many years. Not only can it be used right after you started playing, it also looks damn sexy. The Octane has virtually no weaknesses – as a perfect all-rounder, the body is obviously pretty popular with the community. Whether low in the ranks or as a Supersonic Legend king...


1. Fennec

“New is always better”... what Barney Stinson preached a few years ago is still true – at least for cars in Rocket League. The Fennec is basically the slightly newer and improved version of the Octane. It even comes with the same Hitbox, further optimized by Psyonix.

The only downside the Fennec has over the Octane is that the car feels a bit sluggish and clunky. If your gameplay consists mostly of fast-paced action, then the Octane is probably the better choice. As a whole, though, the Fennec is still the best car in Rocket League.


What Cars Rocket League Pros Use The Most

Although the Fennec still fills the Octane Hitbox a bit better than the Octane itself, the Octane continues to be king of the eSports scene. Since Season 1 of the RLCS, many pros have relied on the OG car – never change a running system, ya know. In fact, the Octane has always been so popular that Psyonix even gave it its own statue in DFH Stadium.

The Fennec and the Dominus come in second and third place – of course, eSports players always know what's good. They quite literally have to in order to perform at the highest level. However, these are still the best cars if you're playing Rocket League casually and just trying to have some fun. You can do the most important tricks and flicks with all bodies anyway... so relax and be nice.
