2018 SPORT UTV BUYER’S GUIDE

— Which one of these exciting models has your name on it? —

What exactly is a sport UTV? To Arctic Cat/Textron and Polaris, it’s a 60-inch-wide UTV, but today’s 50-inch-wide UTVs are very sporty, especially the all-new Maverick Trail 800s and 1000s. Before the Polaris General cross-over UTV (and Gator RSX860i), sport UTVs had a fixed, non-tilting bed that cuts down on utility use. Sport UTVs also have bucket seats instead of benches. Polaris and Can-Am are in a horsepower and suspension-travel war with extreme-performance 1000s and 900–925cc turbos, and width has grown to 72 inches on the 174-horsepower Maverick X3 X rs. Can-Am also introduces two new Rock Crawler editions for 2018, while Polaris unleashes two- and four-seat RZR XP Turbos with Dynamix smart suspension for on-the-fly shock adjustment and a better ride. Yamaha introduces the Wolverine X4, Yamaha’s first UTV with a inline twin engine and convertible rear seats. Textron goes after the General 1000 with its 100-horsepower Havoc X cross-over UTV, and we’re waiting for the drop of the Wildcat XX and at least one new Polaris later this year. Until then, here are the top 50 sport 4×4 UTVs, whether they have seating for one, two or four.

Also of note: 19 models of UTVs were dropped for 2017, and only nine were discontinued for 2018, so we’re stoked with the uptick in innovation as well as sales.
