At the moment of writing this article, there are 20 drivers that you can unlock in Mario Kart Tour. Not all of them are as good as the others and we’ve already shared our thoughts about the best drivers in the game here.

But if you want to just check out the list of available drivers in the game – as well as some thoughts that we have about each of them and how to unlock these characters ASAP, you’re at the right place.

You do have all this information (except for how to unlock them) in the game itself, but sometimes it’s better and easier to just see everything in one place for a clearer overview. And that’s exactly what we have for you in today’s article.

So, let’s start with the beginning – a list of all characters / drivers in Mario Kart Tour and how to unlock them all.
