10 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR

Car Show Price: 27,000 CR

Through cars and offers

A legendary name in rallying, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX kicks off this list of the best Forza Horizon 5 rally cars. This iconic car practically lives on in Horizon 5, as fans can only hope that Mitsubishi will consider bringing back the Lancer Evolution. The Lancer Evolution IX, or Evo IX, is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine that produces 286 hp.

Therefore, Evo IX accelerates quickly and copes well with off-road. Its six-speed gearbox and four-wheel drive ensure smooth shifting and decent traction on low-grip surfaces. However, the Evo IX’s braking mechanism lacks stopping power, something Horizon 5 players should pay attention to when tuning their performance. Priced at 27,000 CR at the Auto Show, the Evo IX is an affordable and fast rally car for those new to Forza Horizon 5.

If BMW has its Mercedes-Benz and Coca-Cola has its Pepsi, Mitsubishi has its rally rival Subaru. Since the 90s, Subaru has been making a name for itself in rallying, and since then, rally fans have been debating whether the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution or the Subaru WRX STi rules.

The 2015 WRX STi is equipped with a 2.5-liter turbocharged Boxer engine with a capacity of 305 hp. This puts it ahead of its Evo IX competitor in terms of acceleration. Also, handling and braking are generally better than the Evo IX. However, as with the Evo IX, the 2015 WRX STi’s braking has plenty of room for improvement. If players are Subaru fans, they can consider this affordable 33,000 CR rally car from the auto show.

For Forza Horizon 5 players willing to shell out more credits, the 2015 Subaru WRX STi can be purchased at the car show for 42,000 CR. Still powered by the 2.5-liter turbocharged opposed engine, the 2015 WRX STi has the same power as its 2011 cousin. The similarities end there, as there are improvements over the 2011 WRX STi.

Acceleration and handling are improved thanks to the 2015 WRX STi’s stronger chassis and faster hydraulic steering compared to the 2011 version. While the Subaru WRX STi is considered a great rally car for the road in real life, the 2015 WRX STi’s lackluster performance compared to its auto show price means players should consider the other rally cars featured on this list of the fastest off-roaders in Forza Horizon 5 .

7 2017 Alpine A110

Price of the car show: none

In 2017, Renault’s performance division Alpine launched the mid-engine, rear-wheel drive Alpine A110. Powered by a small 1.8-liter turbocharged inline-four engine with just 284 hp, the Alpine A110 makes up for its lack of engine power with its lightness, maneuverability and agility.

With a curb weight of 2,342 pounds and a smooth-shifting 7-speed transmission, the A110 is a well-balanced car that handles beautifully. Similarly, the rally-spec A110 may not have as much engine power as the others on this list, but it’s quick through the corners, making up for its lack of straight-line speed.

In terms of styling, the A110 does not have any additional rear wings or spoilers, as Alpine aimed to create a minimalist lightweight car. Because this unique car is rarely available in America, it is also not available for purchase at the Horizon 5 Auto Show. Instead, the car must be offered at an auction house. Additionally, it can appear in the Forzathon Store seasonally or as a festival playlist reward. Therefore, players should immediately grab the Alpine A110 if they see it.

The 2019 Subaru WRX STI S209 is a JDM special in real life. In Forza Horizon 5, this WRX STi is available through DLC 2021 or by purchasing premium versions of the game. The 2019 WRX STi is powered by the same 2.5-liter turbocharged opposed engine found in previous WRX STs.

Power output is higher than previous variants, and its engine is equipped with a larger turbocharger that produces up to 341 hp. That means faster acceleration and a 0-60 mph time of less than 4.5 seconds. In addition to engine power, off-road handling has been improved, meaning Subaru fans will have to shell out CR70,000 at the motor show for the added features.

The 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII is worth a pretty penny thanks to its status as a legendary classic. In Forza Horizon 5, the Lancer Evolution VIII or Evo VIII costs 31,000 CR from the car show. The turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 makes just 277 hp, but its 3,109-pound weight makes it quick off-road. With the Evo VIII’s quick acceleration and maneuverability, the 31,000 CR price tag makes it a bargain for new players still trying to rack up Forza Horizon 5 credits.

There seems to be a common theme of automakers discontinuing their iconic powerhouses, such as Subaru ditching the WRX STi. Fortunately, these legends live on in Forza Horizon 5. One such legend is the 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. The 2.0-liter opposed engine produces a whopping 311 hp, giving this WRX STi excellent acceleration and top speed. Braking performance is lacking, but that can easily be fixed with an aftermarket tune-up. The 2005 WRX STi can be purchased at the car show for just 51,000 CR, making it the best value Subaru rally car Forza Horizon 5 players can buy.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has had its ups and downs over the years. With Mitsubishi discontinuing the Lancer Evolution, the Lancer Evolution X GSR is the latest and greatest Lancer Evolution car. In terms of styling, the Evo X is very different from the previous Evos, with a new futuristic and sporty look.

Its turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine produces 305 hp, which quickly propels the Evo X through the dirt. The Evo X’s stopping power and handling are also matched by its acceleration to take dirt road corners at optimum speed. Price wise, this rally car is priced at CR 43,000 at the car show. It can also be won with Completion Rewards or the Wheelspin Prize. Subaru fans may argue for the WRX ST, but in terms of rally performance and price, it’s one of the best and fastest SUVs in Forza Horizon 5 in terms of affordability.

1 1991 Hoonigan Ford Escort Cosworth Group A

Car Show Price: 500,000 CR

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth is one of the classic rally legends. Hoonigan, owned by the late racing legend Ken Block, built this custom Ford Escort to become one of the best rally cars around. Its highly deceptive 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine was tuned by Hoonigan to produce a monstrous 620 hp.

Coupled with the engine power is a light body weight of 2,690 lbs. Therefore, the acceleration of the Hoonigan Ford Escort Cosworth can only be described in one word: insane. Off-road handling and braking are also excellent, making this the best off-road car in Forza Horizon 5. Even more fortunate, this car is available for purchase at the auto show. However, players will have to work hard to accumulate enough credits to buy it. That’s because the Hoonigan Ford Escort Cosworth is worth half a million credits. Also, players can keep their fists, get lucky and win this amazing car with Wheelspin.
