The Car[1][2] (also known as the Vehicle[3]) is a form that Yoshis can transform into in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake by touching a Morph Bubble containing its picture.

A Car moves faster than a regular Yoshi and is smaller, enabling it to fit through small openings. Pressing B Button will stretch its wheels for a short time, making it possible to avoid enemies or reach higher platforms. When repeatedly done near a wall, this also enables the player to "climb" up the wall.

The Turbo Yoshi car that Yoshi possesses in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! bears some resemblance to the Car. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, artwork of the Car appears as a Sticker.

The Car in the Super Mario-Kun

The Car appears in volume 14 of the Super Mario-Kun. It drives around, but Baby Mario, as Superstar Mario, notices it and gives it a redesign.

The early eye shading
  • Despite the artwork of the Car being light blue, the Light Blue Yoshi never gets an opportunity to morph in a Car.
  • Unused tiles depict the Car form with more heavily-shaded eyes than the final ones, which lack shading on the eyes entirely (except when the wheels are outstretched).
