Car–Hill–Free body

A car coasts at a constant speed over a circular hill. Which of the free-body diagrams in the figure attached is correct? Explain.

My attempt:
I am thinking B. Since the car is at a constant speed, there’s no acceleration. So there is no additional force acting downwards besides it’s weight.

Which would you choose? Explain please.
