Just curious, does anyone know which car has the best braking stat in GTA V (viewable when you go to Los Santos Customs)?


1 Answer 1


I have compiled a list using the Brady guide for GTA 5.

First, let's define the vehicle categories with the best braking stats. According to the guide:

  • Ships including the submarine, as well as all Helicopters have the maximum value of 10/10 for braking.
  • Bicycles come in second with a maximum of 5 points,
  • Motorcycles have a maximum of 4.5 points.
  • Cars, with a maximum of 3.5 points (tuning/modding not included).
  • Planes are dead last with 2.5 points for one plane only, all other planes have a measly score of 1 point (the minimum is 0.5 points, so they aren't quite dead last).

Now that we've established a hierarchy, let's talk about the top of each category.

Like I said before, all ships and helicopters have maximum score, so there's no point in listing the winners here.

Among the bicycles, there is one winner, the BMX with 5 points. Aside from the Fixter with its abysmal 0.5 points, all other bicycles have either 4 or 4.5 points.

The motorcycles category has quite a number of winners (with 4.5 points):

  • Dinka Double-T,
  • Nagasaki Carbon RS,
  • Pegassi Bati 801,
  • Pegassi Bati 801RR
  • Shitzu PCJ 600 .

Last place goes to the Pegassi Faggio with 1.5 points followed by the Western Daemon with 2 points. The rest range between 3.5 and 4 points.

Before we come to cars, I'd like to congratulate the (Crop) Duster for its "amazing" 2.5 points; the only plane to not score 1 point in braking.

Now comes the category everybody's been waiting for, the cars: Winners with 3.5 points are

  • HVY Barracks Semi (surprisingly)
  • Canis Bodhi (Trevor's car)
  • Nagasaki Blazer (even though it behaves like a bike during crashes, it's got 4 wheels, so I consider it a car)
  • Dewbauchee Rapid GT
  • Benefactor Surano
  • Bravado Banshee
  • Obey 9F
  • Obey 9F Cabrio
  • Coil Voltic (the only car I know that's more or less silent)
  • Pegassi Vacca and
  • Truffade Adder

Dead last (with 0.5 points) are:

  • Dock Handler,
  • HVY Dozer,
  • Tank,
  • Ripley
  • (Golf) Caddy.

Aside from the JoBuilt Hauler, the JoBuilt Phantom (both 2.5 points), the Firetruck (1.5 points) and the military HVY Barracks Semi (one of our winners), all trucks (including buses) have 1 point.


Please keep in mind that my answer is based off a work that is not related to Rockstar and may contain mistakes (I definitely found some while I used it).

  • You can upgrade the brakes on most of you cars you have listed ( basically none of the specials i.e. Firetruck ).

  • @Ramhound Good point, I added a (tuning not included) to make it clear that I'm only talking about non-modded vanilla cars, thanks :)
