Has a certain ATV model caught your eye? Check out our ATV reviews for a real world test to help with with your purchasing decision.

Honda ATVs

For many decades, Honda ATVs have led the industry in both performance and reliability. Their Fourtrax TRX250R two-stroke ATVs are still owned and loved by many off-road enthusiasts and the TRX450R is still winning ATV races all over the country and beyond.  Even the hunting, farming and ranching crowds ride red with Honda’s Rancher, Rincon, Rubicon, Foreman and Recon four wheeler models. 

Polaris ATVs

There are many Polaris ATVs to choose from including the popular Sportsman model, which has sold over 1 million models worldwide. Polaris offers ATVs for recreational and utility, touring multi-seat models, high performance and sport four wheelers, new Special Edition ATV models, and the largest youth and entry-level collection with their Outlaw 50, Outlaw 90, Sportsman 110 EFI and Phoenix 200. 

Yamaha ATVs

Yamaha ATVs are some of the best vehicles on the market and are often front-running our Sport and Utility ATV Comparisons. Yamaha’s YFZ450R is one of our Top 10 ATVs Ever Built, and the Raptor 700R is a champion on both dirt and dunes. If 4x4ing is your game, Yamaha’s Grizzly and Kodiak four wheelers will tackle just about any terrain. 

Can-Am ATVs

We love riding Can-Am ATVs! Their Outlander and Renegade models are top sellers in many ATV and four wheeler categories and their youth and entry-level lineup is among the best with the DS 70, DS 90 and 90 X as well as their easy-to-ride DS 250. 

Arctic Cat ATVs

Arctic Cat ATVs, which are now rebadged as Textron Off Road vehicles, offer one of the largest lineups in the ATV industry. They have an ATV for everybody ranging from sport and utility, to youth and entry-level, to single-rider and two-passenger Alterra ATVs, and even one badass Alterra MudPro 700 LTD. 

Argo ATVs

Argo, which is known for their popular amphibious Extreme Terrain Vehicles (XTV), broke into the ATV market in 2016 with their Xplorer XR and Explorer XRT lineups. Check out our ATV Buyer’s Guide for a break down of Argo XTVs and Argo ATVs and see our ATV Reviews section for many first ride experiences. 

Kawasaki ATVs

The Brute Force 750 4x4 is one of the best Kawasaki ATVs of all time. We also think their Brute Force 300 is a front-runner in the entry-level ATV class and their KFX50 and KFX90 will start your kid’s off in the right direction. We just wish they’d bring back the Tecate 250! 

Suzuki ATVs

Suzuki’s QuadRacer LT-R450 landed a spot on our 10 Best Suzuki Models of All-Time, but it’s just one of the many Suzuki ATVs that have ruled the off-road community. Most recently, Suzuki re-designed their King Quad 4x4 lineup including their King Quad 500 and King Quad 750 models. These ATV models, along with their King Quad 400 and Quadsport Z50 and Z90, are currently available at 0% interest for 60 months for qualified buyers or with up to $1,200 cash back. 


Kymco’s Mongoose 70 and Mongoose 90S are great ATVs for kids. Other Kymco ATVs include the largest entry-level lineup with their MXU 150X, Mongoose 270, MXU 270, MXU 450, MXU 500i, MXU 700i as well as their Limited Edition (LE), Camo, Prime and Hunting ATV models. 


CFMoto ATVs are some of the most affordable ATVs on the market with their CForce 400 ($4,299), CForce 500S ($5,299), CForce 600 ($6,299) and their CForce 850 XC ($8,499).
