Best Rocket League Cars and The Most Used Ones
As the above stats table shown, there is no real speed and jump height difference between the different cars so there is not the one best car in Rocket League actually. Psyonix have made each car as similar to each other as possible, they do not want any cars to give anyone an advantage. Are there any differences between cars at all? They differ only in weight, hit-box and control.
Difference: The 'hit-box', which is the total area of the car that the ball can strike, can differ in size. A bigger hit-box would make it easier to hit the ball, or play as goalkeeper, and a smaller one understandably would require more effort the hit the ball.
The Octane which is most used by professional players, its body closely resembles its hitbox. Its tall hitbox allows for easier bounce dribbling, sharper cuts when ground dribbling, and more consistent shooting because you have more vertical space from which to make contact with. What's more in combination with its short length allows for better control when balancing the ball on top of the car. The car's body gives a fairly accurate representation of how the ball will move on top of the car. The roof of the car has a small area that pretty closely resembles the center of mass and the front/sides have a gradual downward slope.
Dominus is a comfort car, why almost every pro currently uses the Dominus? Dominus is a relatively heavy, medium and flat car. The weight of the dominus is difficult but very precise to steer and thus offers advantages for "magicians" as one can dribble with the large area and the ball easy with freestyling can easily control. The dominus actually has the LEAST accurate hitbox when it comes to its length. It has quite a lot of space on the nose of its model that the hitbox completely ignores. This may change the timing at which someone hits the ball, positively helping create a stronger hit.
However, the other cars are not to be underestimated. For example, High-ranking players (veteran and over) are very feared with the Paladin, since this car has a unique steering behavior and can be controlled incredibly accurately in the air. Due to its unusual shape, shot angles, which are significantly harder to perform with other cars, are very difficult, but the dribbling is made very difficult. There are also the "All rounder" cars like Octane such as Breakout, Hotshot, and X-Devil, which is suitable for every tactics, but is not specialized in any.
