HCR2 Cars Tier List: What is the BEST CAR in Hill Climb Racing 2? [Updated 2019]
You need to beat your opponents somehow; let’s start with picking the best car for winning more races in HCR2.In this post, I will go over each and every vehicle, showcasing their strengths and weaknesses while also mentioning what maps they are good for.
UPDATE: I have updated this post on 2 January 2019 with the latest updates as well as more information on each car.
For beginners, let’s start with some smart tactics for when choosing a car.
After completing a few races, you will have enough money to upgrade your car. After a couple more games, you will have ranked up. A new car will be you will be able to purchase.
At that moment, you may be tempted to buy that. Don’t. Don’t because it is a terrible idea for winning races. Your starting Jeep is much stronger without any updates than most cars that will unlock at the start of the game.
Instead of buying the new car, it is a much better idea to upgrade your existing Jeep. In fact, upgrading the Jeep to maximum capacity before buying any car is the most simple way to ensure you win as many races as possible in Hill Climb Racing 2 (HCR2).
Overall, you should prefer upgrading your existing car instead of buying the next one. Because new cars come without any upgrades, your upgraded vehicle is already much faster. It takes a lot of time to earn enough coins to upgrade your new car. That time is better spent winning more races.
You will obviously need to upgrade after maxing the Jeep. You should aim to get a car from the S-Tier list below as your second car.
I have gone this route myself and ranked up much, much faster than my friends that started earlier than me. Their progress was very slow because they tried to fully upgrade every vehicle they got, even the inefficient ones. The slow and bad cars are listed under B and C tiers below. Those cars may be fun to race with but your probability of winning with them is not fun at all.
Now that the advice to keep upgrading one car instead of purchasing multiple vehicles is over, let me list the cars in Hill Climb Racing 2 from best to worst. These are my thoughts but they are more or less correlated with in-game win rates. If you have a different opinion, please share with me in the comments and I will make sure to respond you.
S Tier Cars in Hill Climb Racing 2
S Tier cars are the best of the best. They top the leaderboards in almost all maps. They are the last cars to be unlocked. They are also the most expensive to buy and upgrade. The highest ranks are full of these cars and reaching those ranks with these cars is much easier.
If you have been playing with a cheaper car for some time, using one of these cars will feel like flying on a private jet. Whether you are playing for competitive races or the fun of it, these cars will always be your best choice for a quick win.
This car is the latest addition to the game. It already looks great but the real joy comes when using this beast of a vehicle in a race. On top of its almost unbeatable speed, the Supercar’s acceleration and grip are just right.
It is not as stable as the Rally Car (below) but it is faster, at least on smoother maps. Thanks to its looks and driving style, it is the luxurious version of the Rally Car in some sense. They complete each other; it is possible to win in 95% of the maps with just the Supercar and the Rally Car.
Supercar has two unique upgrades that give it an edge over other cars; air brake and exhaust.
Air Brake will enable you to reach the ground by braking in the air. This means the car starts accelerating earlier, thus getting ahead of the other cars. This upgrade is especially powerful in races with a lot of hills. Spending less time slowly gliding in the air and more time actually racing on the ground gets you ahead.
Exhaust will skyrocket your acceleration. This upgrade plays very well with the Air Brake. They enhance each other, giving the supercar an edge over other cars.
The Rally Car
This car was the best car until Fingersoft Games released the Supercar. The Rally Car still has some advantages, yet, Supercar is the better choice more often. As the former-best car in Hill Climb Racing 2, it still has some great features such as its speed, roll cage, and shape.
The Rally Car’s speed isn’t bad at all. Although the car is a tad slower than the Supercar, the difference isn’t that much. The Formula has a much higher max speed, yet, the Rally Car accelerates much better.
One unique feature of this car is its built-in roll cage. It can withstand many crashes. This enables its drivers to play riskier in tunnel-like races without dying. Most other cars need to either slow down or waste a part slot to get the roll cage. The Rally Car has an advantage over other cars in such maps.
It may be a small detail but the Rally Car’s shape is more suitable for rough terrain than the other two cars in the S tier. This adds to its advantage from the roll cage and makes the car a viable choice for some races.
The Formula is named after and looks like one of the best real-world cars. Yet, in Hill Climb Racing 2, its performance doesn’t quite hold up to that standard. Even though it has the highest max speed by far, the acceleration of this car is around C Tier. The main advantage of The Formula is its max speed. In theory, that sounds like a great feature, but it is rare to reach the max speed in the game. There are lots of hills and obstacles in the game, making the ability to speed up faster much more important. In smooth races, this car will be able to get miles ahead of other cars. Unfortunately, such tracks aren’t common at all in Hill Climb Racing 2.
Another thing to note is how hard it is to ride this car. The Formula can’t speed back up after a crash. To succeed
Best Car in Hill Climb Racing 2
And the winner is … The SUPERCAR
With great features all around, this beast of a vehicle is able to win most of the races, most of the time.
Now that you know the best car in the game, how about reading some Hill Climb Racing 2 tips & tricks to win more races? Or you could read the rest of this post to explore the other cars in the game.
All the cars below are secondary choices but if you have too many coins to spend, keep reading.
A Tier Cars in Hill Climb Racing 2
These cars aren’t the best yet it is still possible to win some races with them. You shouldn’t buy one of these until you get at least one car from the S Tier.
A good car with over average stats but the stats alone aren’t enough to put it in the S tier.
Just like Super Diesel in terms of stats. The monster tires give it an advantage on tracks with a rough ground as this giant vehicle can just run over them!
Great for short tracks with its ability to blitz forward at the start. The roll cage is also a plus but its stability and speed are not enough to push it to the S Tier. Still can be unexpectedly successful against other cars.
Although this is the starter car, it can win you races even in the challenger rank when fully upgraded and played well. The stats are B-tier but the cost efficiency carries it over to the A tier.
B Tier Cars in Hill Climb Racing 2
Not recommended at all. Only buy when you have nothing else spend money on.
Not a really useful vehicle but its unique skates are worth mentioning.
The in-game text says it all – “It’s a tank!”. Really fun to play but not really suitable for actual competitive racing. It can get stuck in the mines, be careful!
Just an upgraded version of the classic old jeep. The roll cage it comes with lets you equip one more part but the roll cage being upgradeable doesn’t really help its stats.
Really fun car to drive with. As you lose passengers, your ride becomes a lonely one. If you really go ahead by crushing the car, you eventually become a monowheel!
You can do some cool flip combos in the air but this car is not good at landing (nor winning races!).
C Tier Cars in Hill Climb Racing 2
Really hard controls, trash stats. Just a filler vehicle.
Now don’t get me wrong, this is the most fun vehicle in the game. Unfortunately is it the worst choice to win races.
Hill Climb Racing 2 is a great game overall, and the best car is the Supercar.
