Need for Speed Heat features a car score which persuades you to upgrade your vehicle by installing new parts. However, buying new cars is sometimes a better tactic. So that you can add a different option to your garage, here’s everything you need to know about how to buy cars in Need for Speed Heat.
You’ll want to buy cars because sometimes it can be cheaper to do so than installing enough new parts on a car to get it to the car rating you need it to be at for an event.
It’s also a good thing to do because each car has a different design that makes it better on different surfaces or in different types of event. They can be set up for drifting, racing, or even driving off road.
How to Buy Cars in Need for Speed Heat
While you can change which car you’re using and install new parts on it from a Garage, you’ll need to go somewhere else to actually get new rides.
If you’re out and about and decide that you want to buy a new car, you’ll need to head to the Dealership, which is helpfully very close to the main Garage that you start at every time you load up the game.
Look for the handshake like icon just by the Garage icon in the middle of the map. There’s a kind of circular road that goes around the outside of the Garage and Dealership. Just follow it round from the Garage and you’ll be able to buy cars.
Once you’re there, press R1 if you’re on PS4 (RB on Xbox One) to enter it. You’ll then be able to scroll through the cars that are available to you. You buy them with cash, which you earn mainly by racing during the day, and more unlock to be purchased as you increase your REP level.
Just press X (PS4) or A (Xbox One) on the car you want to buy and then confirm it. You’ll then be able to jump in it straight away and drive off into the night (or day).
Time needed: 1 minute.
In short, here’s how to buy cars in Need for Speed Heat:
- Look for the handshake icon on the map. It is by the main Garage in the centre of the map.
You can fast travel there.
- Head there and press R1 or RB to enter.
- Choose the car you want to buy and press X (PS4) or A (Xbox One) to confirm it.
