How wide is a side-by-side ATV or UTV?

Most of the side-by-side ATV or UTV will come with a width of 48-inch to 65-inch. Side-by-side UTVs are available in three different categories. You will be able to choose them in the Sports, Utility, and Recreational sector.

The sports side-by-side vehicles tend to come with more width than the other two types. The recreational UTVs tend to have the smallest width. On the other hand, the utility side by side UTVs tends to fall in the middle when you are talking about their width.

The dimension of any side-by-side utility vehicle is one of the most important factors that everyone should consider while confirming the purchase. UTVs possess the characteristics of an ATV, but they are not the same as ATV. They come in handy for multiple purposes. You can think about using a utility vehicle both in the professional and sports sectors. From towing to farming, a side-by-side vehicle always brings forth beneficial services.

You should choose the dimension of the vehicle according to the type of chores that you would do with the vehicle. If you prefer shifting larger loads from one place to another, you should choose a UTV with a larger dimension.

On the contrary, if you prefer having a sport vehicle to extract the test of adventure, consider having a UTV with a width between 48 inches to 60 inches.

Finally, if you would like to ensure enough space for your passengers, you should go with a side-by-side vehicle that has a width between 60 inches to 72 inches.
