Driving in Cyberpunk 2077 works similar with other open-world games. Step on the gas to accelerate and hit the brakes when you want to stop. Every vehicle handles differently though so it's best to get used to a type of vehicle.
The road can be a bit slippery when driving, so if you want to make a turn without crashing into anything, lay off the gas then hit the brakes just when you're about to turn.
Fortunately, you can't fly through the windshield if you crash your car at high speed. Trust us, we've tested it. But your car will explode if it takes too much damage, especially from gun shots.
Depending on your driving preference, some vehicles are far more attuned to specific driving styles.
For example, the Caliburn models' (as well as most cars) main focus is speed over control so you can expect it to swerve often but get you to your destination faster. Bikes on the other hand are quite easier to control but they are quite slower.
Most vehicles are suited for the roads of the city. But, once in the deserts of the Badlands, certain vehicles are not as reliable.
Cars which are built for speed will most likely spiral out of control while those built for control will be far suited to go through the sandy terrain. Bikes are far better suited for this but there are cars that can traverse the desert as easily. Learn to switch around your vehicles to know which are best suited to your needs.
Although the game is in first-person perspective, you can switch the camera view to third-person when driving. This gives you a better view of the road, especially if you're used to third-person driving.
The player can summon a vehicle to your location anytime, anywhere. You can also change which vehicle you can summon, as well as adding vehicles by parking them in your apartment's garage.
The game also has in-game radio stations that you can listen to while driving. This makes travelling around Night City by car more favourable than fast travelling.
Not exactly a driving feature, but you can also stash your items in the trunk of your car. It's one of the best ways reduce your inventory and store any unwanted items that you might use in the future.
