If you really need to get away somewhere, and if any more than one front seat is too much like a crowd, you might be interested in the new Polaris Sportsman ACE off-roader.
The Sportsman ACE comes with just one deep single bucket-seat.
And wherever it's going, it will get there quickly: the ACE features an all-new fuel injected dual overhead-cam ProStar engine, producing 24kW (32 HP) and fed by a 19.87 litre fuel tank.
The seat offers 10.2cm of adjustment and a three-point seatbelt, while the 'cabin' (lossely speaking) also includes protective netting, a foot rest and adjustable steering.
The ACE has a 156cm wheelbase, with 26.04cm of ground clearance and independent rear suspension with 24.1cm of travel. Overall width is 121.9cm.
Four-wheel disc brakes take care of the stopping, while traction on muddy farm driveways is aided by the on-demand all-wheel-drive system.
Rack and storage capacity is rated at 260kg, and the ACE can tow up to 680kg.
"The introduction of the Sportsman ACE is part of our strategy to remain the leader in the power-sports marketplace by introducing innovative products that define their categories," Polaris’ David Longren said.
"We wanted to not only appeal to current farmers, commercial users and off-road enthusiasts, but develop a vehicle that brings new customers to both work and recreation."
The 2014 Polaris Sportsman ACE is on sale in Australia from April this year, with pricing yet to be confirmed.
