Best Cars Characters

Pixar's Cars franchise began with the 2006 film Cars, which was followed by Cars 2 in 2011 and Cars 3 in 2017. The series is set in a world populated by anthropomorphic talking cars.
The Top Ten
1 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.

Despite being a bit of an airhead, Mater is by no means annoying. He's a good friend who is funny, kind, and trustworthy. He always tries his best to help and have fun with the cars he cares about. Plus, his character arc in Cars 2 humanized him and proved that he is more than just a comic relief character. I love Mater.

He's my second favorite Cars character because of his loyalty, heart, and humor.

Most likable character, woo hoo!

2 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.

My favorite. He is sort of an anti-hero, just how I like it. Also, people say he is selfish at the beginning of Cars 1, but in my opinion, he is not that evil at the start.

I just love this guy! Lightning McQueen is and always will be my favorite Cars character, even after what the third film did to him.

One of the best-developed Pixar protagonists. He learns the timeless lesson that money and fame aren't all that matter in life.

3 Doc Hudson

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.

4 Sally

Sally is such a great character. She is very nice and is very well written. I also like Porsches a lot in general.

She's a very sarcastic and fun Porsche, and she's also pretty loyal.

5 Fillmore
6 Chick Hicks
7 Guido

"Paparazzi (spit)." I love his personality and that line.

8 Luigi

He's a very nice guy.

9 Strip "The King" Weathers

So good! "You're one gutsy racer but you're stupid".

10 Gasprin

Yeah, he is the best!

Floyd is the best.

He is the best.

The Contenders
11 Finn McMissile

He's the main reason I enjoyed Cars 2.

12 Sheriff
13 Sarge
14 Ramone

I remember finding this car quite fascinating.

15 Mack
16 Wingo

He is the best!

17 Snot Rod
18 Francesco Bernoulli

He needs no strategy!

19 Jackson Storm

He's easily the coolest of the next gens.

20 DJ

He is pretty cool for a car who almost killed McQueen, and he's covered with 21 speakers.

21 Max
22 Michael Schumacher Ferrari
23 Red
24 Miss Fritter
25 Rusty Rust-eze
