15. X-Devil

X-Devil is a biased favorite of mine because this was the first car that made me fall in love with Rocket League. It has a hybrid hitbox and is an OG car. This car isn't flashy or stylish, but if you're a beginner and you want an OG car to use that is well-balanced, I recommend trying the X-Devil.
