The Top Ten

1 Lightning McQueen Lightning McQueen Lightning McQueen, typically referred to by his surname McQueen, is a anthropomorphic stock car in the animated Pixar film Cars, its sequels Cars 2, Cars 3, and TV shorts known as Cars Toons.

In the 3rd one, he had to do what no other old car could ever do, beat Jackson Storm.

Why, who needs a piston cup? Family is much stronger than shining prizes

Iconic character from Pixar - codgtamk34

McQueen, winning the race isn't the same as being a true hero

2 Mater Mater Tow Mater, or simply Mater, is a character in Cars and its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3 as well as Cars Toons. He is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and inspired by a 1951 International Harvester tow truck.

Mater is my favorite - MegadethFan07

He is too funny 4 me. His jokes never get old so "Git-R-Done"

3 Doc Hudson

I loved Doc in the original film. When they announced his actor died in 2008, I was really hoping they'd find a new actor for him in Cars 2. And then 2011 came and he was written off. Cars 3 was a nice way to honor I'm and Paul Newman - codgtamk34

He really put a lot of effort into helping Lightning McQueen. I wasn't always sure he was my favorite character but now that I've seen Cars 3 I know that he is. He was the nicest character in the Cars franchise. Lightning McQueen comes very close to being my favorite because of the part towards the end of the first movie, but he still isn't better than Doc Hudson.
