HOW DOES COST COMPARE?
The RZR S 570 is $12,999, or
$2700 more than the RZR 570. Its
real competition is other 60-inch-wide,
long-travel machines. Price-wise, the
next closest Polaris RZR S model is the
$14,699 RZR S 900. Arctic Cat’s 700cc
Wildcat Sport XT EPS is $14,599, the
Wildcat Sport Limited EPS is $15,999
and Can-Am’s Maverick 1000 xc is
WHAT POWERS IT?
A single-cylinder, double-overhead-cam, four-valve, 567cc engine with 45
horsepower. The Prostar single is a
high-performance engine with a broad
powerband, and it’s one reason this
RZR is so light—just 1,130 pounds dry.
WHAT KIND OF TRANSMISSION DOES IT
A fully automatic, dual-range CVT.
The automatic is so easy to use,
learning drivers can enjoy the RZR, but
the clutch tuning is sporty enough to
satisfy skilled, aggressive drivers.
WHAT KIND OF 4WD SYSTEM DOES IT
The same system as the larger RZRs.
It includes selectable 2WD/4WD with
an automatic-locking front differential.
When you switch to 4WD, the system
remains in 2WD until the speed-sensing differential detects the rear
wheels turning faster than the fronts. It
responds so instantly, you won’t notice
it activate, except for the huge increase
HOW FAST IS IT?
Fast enough to have fun with, and
it feels respectably quick compared
to other small-displacement UTVs. If
you take a minute to consider that it’s
a 567cc engine propelling a 60-inch-
wide, long-travel UTV, the 570 is pretty
HOW DOES THE POWER DELIVERY WORK
ON THE TRAIL?
Keeping in mind it’s a 570, extremely
well. Polaris matched the engine and
clutch tuning perfectly, so the 570 pulls
strongly even from low speeds, and it
has respectable top-end power. The
reality of most rides is, you only use a
fraction of the power big-bore UTVs
have, which means the S 570 has more
than enough motor to go everywhere
the big machines go, like in the woods
and on desert trails. The S 570 can be
fun in the dunes, too, but it lacks the
power to climb the really big faces.
WHAT KIND OF SUSPENSION DOES IT
Double A-arms front and rear with
12 inches of travel up front and 12. 5
inches out back. Simple, preload-adjustable, low-pressure, gas ZF Sachs
shocks control the travel. A rear sway
bar helps keep body roll in check.
HOW DOES THE SUSPENSION WORK?
It’s very impressive, especially if
you’re used to a machine with 10
inches of travel or less. Long travel
makes it easier to provide plush
Impressive stability, light weight and manageable power make the S 570 nimble and sure-
footed, and the chassis has no trouble coping with the machine’s power and speed.
Simple, nitrogen-charged Sachs shocks and double A-arms give the RZR S 570 12 inches of
bump-swallowing, whoop-eating travel.
