Which brand of UTV provides the smoothest ride in a 4 seater out of all of the selections there are on the market? Right now we are on the Polaris Ranger wagon but would like more input and see what other people think before we decide...

Thanks for all input

I just bought the Mahindra and it felt great riding it around through the woods I would say it felt great. The seats are really nice in them.

I have owned different brands - as far as suspension and smooth ride Polaris takes the cake - however they have other issues you would want to consider

The gators I've ridden in were very smooth.

My Can Am Commander has a very smooth ride and very nice bucket seats!

Look for weight and big suspension parts.. Shocks, wheels, axle, full independent and 4wheel disc brakes.. You need to be sure every connection point has well sized bushings.. Dont matter how good the ride is the first year once these connection points fail your ride is going to get rough.. And the lighter the machine the harder it will take rough terrain

I like our Kawasaki Teryx4. We took it to Colorado last year and did 160+ miles in one day, between the suspension, great bucket seats, and power steering, we weren't tired and ready for more. The people in the Polaris Rzr were ready to call it quits, the suspension was very soft which caused lots of bottoming. The Teryx4 has the shortest wheelbase of all the 4 seaters making it more manuverable

I'm a huge Ranger fan and have been for a while. Do they have problems, of course, just like any other manufacturer out there. Polaris became the top atv/utv seller around 10yrs ago and have tons of units out there. I had a Teryx back a few years ago and the cab noise drove me crazy and getting dusted out constantly. It did have plenty of power and a nice ride though. Everyone can say buy this or that, you already know this but you owe it to yourself to go and drive as many as you can. That Mahindra machine looks promising as well.

Thanks for all the input it seems that we will be going the Polaris route it by far has the best suspension in the type of utv we are looking for. If the general was a two row seating utv it would win the vote by far after checking them out!!
