Which are the best cars in Forza Horizon 4’s The Eliminator?

Same article, in italian: Quali sono le migliori auto nell’Eliminator di Forza Horizon 4?

Since mid-December 2019, the online world of Forza Horizon 4 has been enriched with the “Eliminator” mode, a modern challenge that recalls the popular video game Fortnite. 72 players choose where to start their race, and from that point they have to resist inside an arena which becomes narrower and narrower, until the final race, which will decide only one winner.

Everyone starts with the same car, the Mini Cooper S of the 60s, and to take possession of better cars you have to go to a special “spawn”, which can give you any type of car, or challenge an opponent, to steal his own car in case of victory, or to get a car of a higher level than your own (in total the car levels are 10). But be careful: whoever loses is eliminated. Welcome to the Eliminator.

In this article, we will find out together which are the best cars in the Forza Horizon 4 Eliminator.

Best cars in The Forza Horizon 4 Eliminator

About fifty different cars are available in the Eliminator. Between these cars, of course, there are some more useful than others, and in this guide I will show you all those cars that from personal experience allow you to achieve great successes, and those that should be avoided.


  •  Mini Cooper S: the small car at the start of the game is even stronger than most of the level 2 and 3 cars. Being small, in fact, it manages to dodge plants, rocks and any obstacle that stands between you and the finish line. It is not suitable for winning the final challenge, but it can help you a lot in the early stages of the game against the Mitsubishi Galant, the Golf of 2003 and the Skyline ’93.   
  •  Volkswagen Touareg R50: appearances are deceiving. The Touareg R50 is among the most competitive off-road vehicles in the game, and it is one of the best cars to fly in the English moorland. Excellent compromise between on and off road performance.
  •  Volkswagen Golf R ’14: it is not as flashy as the Toyota Supra, it does not have the pedigree of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution or the Subaru Impreza WRX and it is not even as extreme as the Mercedes G-Class 6X6, but the apparently discreet Golf R can stand out for its performance, clearly superior to those of its “classmates”, and above all for the great handling.  
  •  Porsche Macan Turbo: SUVs are the most useful cars in the Eliminator, and the Macan is one of the best. It performs well off the road, but does not disdain the asphalt. Excellent for crossing woods thanks to the great handling.
  •  Ford Focus RS ’17: the Focus RS is another excellent car to progress in the Eliminator, thanks to its speed on asphalt and on a dirt road. If you can take a dirt road to reach the head-to-head finish, you can count on its great performance.  
  •  Hummer: the level 5 Hummer at first glance may seem yet another slow and clumsy off-road vehicle, but believe me, it is a deadly weapon to climb slopes and humiliate many rivals. Highly recommended, especially because of its ability to fly over water.
  • Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: excellent performance on dirt roads, great handling, great balance in the jumps and excellent speed on asphalt: these are the characteristics that I feel I can attribute to the Stelvio in the Eliminator, not out of blind patriotism, but from experience. Must have.    
  •  Lamborghini Urus: the only SUV even better than the Stelvio, it is also perfect for the final race. Cutting through meadows or woods is not a problem, nor is running on dirt roads.   
  •  Porsche Panamera: great GT with excellent top speed, which manages to reach absurd speeds on asphalt or dirt road, and surprisingly even to jump with agility.
  • Nissan GT-R Black Edition: being level 9, it is generally obtained towards the end of the Eliminator. Perfect for massacring other supercars thanks to a slightly higher set-up than rivals, and to its agility in tight curves.
  •  RJ Anderson # 37 Polaris RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck ’16: the best car among all those available. I only found her once, accidentally at a spawn, and I can assure that no car is able to keep up with her once she leaves the asphalt. Unfortunately, it is extremely rare.


  • Mitsubishi Galant: slow, not very agile, worse than the Mini.  
  • Nissan Skyline GT-R ’93: I hope JDM fans will forgive me: it is useless in this game, due to the rigidity of its set-up: as soon as the asphalt is left behind, the problems begin.  
  • Volkswagen Golf R32: worse than the Mini, it is not worth choosing.    
  • Lancia Delta S4 (level 3): fast, but extremely unstable. There are countless times when you lose control over a head to head, facing an inexorable defeat.   
  • Volvo V60 Polestar: not very useful, slow, clumsy. Better than the Mini, unless you end up in a wood …
  • Mercedes G63 AMG 6X6: slow and extremely clumsy. Useful for crossing steep stretches, but crossing steep stretches is useless…
  • Toyota Supra RZ: in the Eliminator, the Supra is one of the worst cars: it is slow on asphalt and on dirt roads and continues to overturn, because it is low and rigid.
  •  Audi RS6 ’03: good performance for a level 2 car, but it is actually 5. Not recommended.   
  •  Audi RS4 Avant: it does not shine on asphalt, due to its excessive weight and improved handling, and in off-road it continues to bounce.  
  • Ferrari FF: unwieldy and terrible  at off-roading. It is worth taking from a spawn, but not from a head to head.
  •  Acura NSX: extremely rare to obtain, but useful only on asphalt. As soon as you leave the road surface, the rebounds begin.
  • Audi Sport Quattro S1: extremely stable, but unfortunately terribly slow compared to rivals. A Stelvio is better.    
  • Mercedes AMG GT S and AMG GT R: two very similar cars in all, and they also share a place in this ranking. Fast on asphalt, but they can’t get away from it.
