As the industry's only youth side-by-side, the RZR 170 EFI is designed to give kids 10 years and older the joy of driving while providing safety features parents will love. Power is provided by a 170cc, laid-down, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. And, the mill is mated to a fully automatic CVT transmission boasting forward, neutral and reverse gears. The machine is two-wheel drive. The little RZR starts easy by using a keyed ignition and a little pressure on the brake pedal. The cockpit can fit all-sized kids well thanks to an adjustable driver’s seat. An adult 6 feet tall could squeeze into either seat, but it’s cramped quarters. The smallest kid I have safely put behind the wheel is 4-foot-4. Polaris sets an age recommendation of 10 years old. Parents can set a throttle limiter, and standard window nets will keep hands from touching the ground in case of a tip-over. It’s a great idea for parents to ride around with their kids to make sure they have total control before setting the kids loose by themselves. It takes about two minutes of instruction to get any kid up to speed when driving for the first time. The passenger gets plenty of legroom and an adjustable T-shaped grab handle. . The RZR 170 is very simple to drive. Out in the open it goes a respectable 30 mph, which is just fine for off road. The RZR 170 is fun and reliable. Just as they do with every other segment, Polaris did a great job filling the need of a youth UTV so everyone in the family can enjoy this great sport.
