Benefits of Owning a One-Seat Side-By-Side

Posted on: 9 February 2022


When you browse a large selection of side-by-sides at a dealership in your community, one thing that you'll quickly notice is how these vehicles have all sorts of different seat configurations. You'll commonly see side-by-sides with two seats and four seats, and some models even have additional seating. Another design that is common is just a single seat. While a one-seat side by side won't allow you to transport a passenger, it can still offer a number of benefits that make it an appealing choice for someone who is keen on riding. Here are three benefits of owning a one-seat side-by-side.

Small Body

In general, one-seat side-by-sides are shorter and narrower than their counterparts that offer more seating space. This smaller size can be advantageous for a number of different reasons. If you plan to store the vehicle in your garage when you're not using it, it won't take up as much space. If you have a large pickup truck, you may be able to easily transport your side-by-side in the bed of the truck — something that wouldn't necessarily be possible with a larger model. Finally, the smaller size of this vehicle will allow you to easily navigate in tight environments such as overgrown wooded areas.

Less Fuel Consumption

The smaller size of a one-person side-by-side makes it lighter than many of its counterparts, and you'll also save a lot of weight by not having passengers riding with you. Having three passengers in a four-seat side-by-side can easily add several hundred pounds of weight, and this will result in increased fuel consumption because your motor will have to work harder to move the vehicle and its passengers. If you're concerned about rising fuel costs and you want to use as little fuel as possible, a one-seat model can be a good option.

Lower Price

You'll typically find that the price of a one-seat side-by-side is lower than models that have more seating. While there are a lot of factors that can influence the price of one of these vehicles, a one-seat model can be a budget-friendly choice. If you're keen on owning a side-by-side but you have other hobbies that are expensive, you might like the idea of choosing a vehicle that costs as little as possible. You can browse a selection of one-seat models, as well as those that offer more seating, by visiting a local dealership.
