One of the biggest success stories over the past 10 years has been the Polaris RZR line. The first RZR 800 immediately became very popular, and so did the 900 and 1000 when they were introduced later. The only complaint from people was that these new RZR UTVs cost quite a bit more than the 4×4 quads they had been riding. Polaris set out to do something about that in 2012 when they offered the RZR 570. Instead of the normal twin-cylinder engine, the 570 has only one cylinder, which costs less to manufacture. Although smaller, the 570 still makes decent power from its four-valve, double-overhead-cam engine design. With a price of only $9999 in 2012, it became affordable for many quad riders who were thinking about getting a UTV. In four years the price has only gone up $300, which means the 2016 model is still a good bargain. When looking over the results of the RZR 570 owners’ survey, the question about durability stands out. Almost everyone said that nothing has ever broken or malfunctioned on their machine. You may not get to your destination as quick as in the bigger RZRs, but you’ll be sure to get there by having a little less power.
