Gran Turismo 7 best starter car

The best starter car in Gran Turismo 7 is the Toyota Aqua S ’11, which has the highest Performance Points rating out of the three eligible starter cars in the game.

Just like in Gran Turismo 6, every car in Gran Turismo 7 is attributed a Performance Points rating. With every car being a different weight and boasting different levels of engine power and handling, PP ratings are the best way to quickly judge which cars are generally better than others.

While it’s hardly a rocket ship with just 349.25 PP, the Aqua S is the best car at the beginning of the game you can afford with the 20,000 credits you’ll have. The other two starter cars are the Honda Fit Hybrid ‘14 and the Mazda Demio XD Touring ‘15. There isn’t much to separate this three in terms of price and performance, but the Suzuki does appear to be the slightly quicker option.

Well, there you have it – everything we know about the best starter cars in Gran Turismo 7. If you’re looking to snazz up your starter car, Gran Turismo 7 is offering players thousands of customisation options and plenty of ways to tweak and tune your car as you see fit.
