Forza Horizon 3: Tips and Tricks for Beginners

1 of 7

Start With a Car That’s Right for You


After kicking things off and winning your first Showcase, you will have to pick between one of four cars to start your Forza Horizon 3 adventure. The options are a Ford Shelby GT350R, a Nissan Silvia Spec R, a BMW M4 Coupe, and a HSV Limited Edition Gen-F GTS Maloo. Each of these cars is a well balanced vehicle to start you off right and have you ready to win races and the hearts of fans immediately. However, checking their stats before putting ink on the contract will help you out.

You know your driving style better than anyone, so pick something that fits. I personally went with the Nissan since it had solid handling and great acceleration, although it wasn’t the fastest in the bunch. Why? I know that I’m a reckless driver, so having that extra push in acceleration meant that I could take crazy drifts and spins, hit the gas, and lurch forward faster than anyone else; this helped to keep me in the lead and win a lot of races. Pick which stats suit you best because this will be your only vehicle for a little while — unless you want to waste Credits early or you get lucky and win a car from the Wheelspin.
