I think deciding between getting the two seater or four seater might be a tough one. Some of us at the moment may only need a two seater but months down the road we might be regretting that wishing we had bought a four when some friends or even family want to tag along.

What will you be getting a two or four seater?

700-4

You can convert the rear seating area to become cargo space plus it's still on a short wheelbase, not like they had to expand it just to seat 4.

This video should help:

The 700-4 is good to have for four but with the foldable seats it will be easy to convert it to a two seater with space to lug around whatever it is you need. I bet you would be hitting yourself if you ever need a four seater for whatever reason if you dont get the 700.

^ well then they can hold on for dear life in the back if they want a ride. my cousin was out in our woods getting fire wood and he ended up dropping a log on his foot. I hauled him up the back of my mule, he seemed to hold up just fine until we found out he had a hairline fracture.

Lol

A 4 seater utv would be fun to have to take the family around in. i like the adjustable seat though where it doesn't have to stay in permanent position.

I would definitely look in to getting this 700 model but would like to get a chance to test it out first.

Not bad but the can am maverick max looks way more comfortable but it is double the price compared to the pioneer 700-4. Has anybody got a chance to look at the can ams yet?

The seats in the back do look at bit tight for knee space. It would have been nice if honda extended the wheelbase so the back seating area could be pushed back more.

it's also a good thing they didn't extend the wheel base, it's just that much more affordable with the same wheelbase as a two seater. who knows, with Pioneer sales being good they could consider a long wheel base model for those that need the space.

Just more options if you really require the extra space but ill do fine without it since the pioneer will be just used for taking care of the duties around the property.

A longer wheel base make sense for everything even better handling i would think. But yes seating passengers comfortably would require a bit more space.

Yup, the best advice I can give is that if you ever think you need more space, there's no question a long wheel base model is for you.

Yes that would drive up the cost a lot. Do you really think there would be a market for the pioneer with four seats?

It just depends they made it for a reason. It keeps things open for people who would want to take guest or family to explore the woods and other terrrains. At least Honda has two pioneers to chose from.

For me the M4 is perfect. Put the seats up and take the kids cruising around, put the seats down and use it around the farm. When I did take it out on the trails I wouldn't want a longer machine. The M4 should sell great for their target area.

yeah it was built as a multi use vehicle in the end so having 4 seats is the best way to do this. great for farmers, hunters, etc.
