A Forza Horizon 5 reasonably priced car needs to be rated in C Class and you might need one for a weekly challenge or championship. Entering a championship and reaching the top of the podium might award you with a flashy supercar worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of Credits, although your reasonably priced car of choice will only be worth a fraction of that. While this type of car is hardly the best in Forza Horizon 5, it'll be good to have in your garage if it means you can win even better cars using it. Here’s what you need to know about what qualifies as a reasonably priced car in Forza Horizon 5.

What is a Forza Horizon 5 reasonably priced car?

If you’re looking to complete a Forza Horizon 5 seasonal championship or challenge that calls for a 'reasonably priced' car, you'll need a C Class car – that’s a rating from 501 to 600 – and it must be worth 25,000 CR or less. We’d also recommend modifying it to bring it up to the maximum C Class rating of 600, which won’t add too much more to the initial cost of the car.

You won't be able to compete in a championship if you don't use an eligible car, but thankfully this type of car is very cheap, so they shouldn't set you back much at all. In Forza Horizon 5 seasonal championships, you compete in multiple races and score points based on your position in each one. Scoring the most points at the end will win you the championship and get you the free reward. These rewards can include some incredibly fast cars, so make sure you check each week to see if you can get a Forza Horizon 5 best cars freebie.

However, these are limited-time events that only last for an in-game season which is a week in real time, so make sure you don't miss out. You can check all the available seasonal championships and their restrictions on the Festival Playlist page for the current season. There will also be plenty of challenges to complete - some might involve Forza Horizon 5 solar panels - and maybe a treasure hunt to do.

When you begin a championship and choose your car for the first race, you’ll be given the option to choose a car you own, so this is good opportunity to see if you’ve got something eligible. If not, you can buy a recommended car, but you should still upgrade it, if possible.
