How to Choose the Best ATV, SxS, or UTV for Your Needs

First ask the question: how you plan to use it? Consider whether you want an off road vehilcle for work, recreational riding, hunting, or something in the middle. If it’s for work, look for utility-based features such as towing capability, cargo and payload capacity. For sport and recreation, horsepower, size, maneuverability, suspension travel and ground clearance are considerations.

1. How do you plan to use your vehicle?

Sport & Recreation

If seeing new places and experiencing new things is your goal, an ATV or SxS is the vehicle you need to outrace the ordinary. Seating capacity may also drive your decision here, so consider whether you’ll be riding alone or looking for family fun. A shorter, narrower vehicle is more maneuverable and is better suited for tight, winding trails, while wider & longer ones offer more seating for multiple passengers.

Utility

At the end of the day, your to-do list needs to be shorter than when you started. With farming and ranching often requiring an all-out workhorse, a UTV is what you should be looking at. They feature powerlift/dump cargo boxes to help you haul gravel, hay bales, fencing and other needed materials. And the larger engine size, elevated payload and towing capacity will make a UTV your new favorite co-worker on your property.

2. How many passengers?

Driver Only

A single-seat ATV is most likely what you’re looking for to take yourself over trails and terrain, although many single riders also choose to pilot UTV/SxS’s with additional seating and features.

Driver with a Passenger

A UTV/SxS is typically larger than an ATV, with more seating, enabling friends and families to be part of the experience. A single row UTV/SxS is the norm, although some prefer a touring UTV with an extra row.

Multiple Passengers

For work crews, large families and groups of friends, a UTV/SxS with rows of seating and larger cargo capacity for gear and supplies is what you’ll want to focus on.
