DiRT 5 is one of the free PlayStation Plus games of January 2022, and for the occasion we wondered what are the most performing cars within the title signed Codemasters. Taking as a reference the 63 vehicles that make up the car park, here are which can be considered the best available to players.
Aston Martin DBX
Thanks to its 550 CVs, the first sports utility produced by the English brand boasts a speed above average, and is perfectly able to adapt both to asphalt and to the driving on dirt ground.
Brenthel Industries Class 1 Buggy
The high stability of this machine, combined with its unrivalled handling, makes it one of the most reliable options in the game. Our advice is to get you one as soon as possible.
This iconic racing car produced from 1984 to 1986 represents all the best of the American rally of the time. The difference between its practicality is admirable in the narrow curves and the power that is able to release in off-road.
Undisputed representative of the classic rally, this car is not only incredibly fast, but also one of the most fun to use in DiRT 5. In the hands of players who know how to dose the parking brake, the Lancia Stratos can turn out to be a stunning car.
Lotus Exige R-GT Rally
Driven by a supercharged V6 engine, this machine is the most suitable for players who can’t wait to skip at high speed without worrying about losing grip. In addition, unlike the Lancia Stratos, the Exige R-GT can be safely tamed without using the hand brake.
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI
In the late 1990s, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI became a new standard of comparison in terms of stability, handling and road-holding. In DiRT 5, it is reconfirmed to be a model to rely on.
Porsche 911 SC/RS Rally
Another car, another classic rally. Being one of the most successful models in its category, the 911 in DiRT 5 could only be represented as one of the best cars to choose from.
Porsche 959 Prodrive Rally Raid
Winner of the unfortunate edition of the Rally Dakar held in 1986, this car stands on the others for its solidity that allows it to manage the off-road excellently. Buy it and you won’t regret it.
Porsche Macan T1 Rally Raid
The last Porsche on this list is a so good SUV that it is worth playing with the DBX. Given the value for money, players can buy it right from the start and use it to reach higher and higher peaks.
Volkswagen Beetle Rallycross
We end up beautifully with the Beetle, one of the fastest and easiest machines to use in the video game. Its unmistakable soft lines may not be pleasing to everyone, but they perfectly reflect the fluidity with which you eat the tracks.
If you want to explore the various aspects of the title, we leave you to our review of DiRT 5. On the pages of Everyeye.it we also wondered what is the best rally game between DiRT and WRC.
