500-class UTV throwdown

While there are plenty of big horsepower UTVs on the market with big price tags to go along with them, not everyone has the budget or the need for the biggest UTV they can get. There is a definite niche market for the entry-level utility/recreation Side-by-Side that has enough power to do moderate work and play, and that can fit into most budgets. Two of the “heavyweights” in the division are the 2017 Polaris Ranger 500 and the Honda Pioneer 500, each with an MSRP of $8,999. Let’s break them down by the numbers.
