Differences between UTV and ATV
While ATVs are controlled with handlebars, UTVs drive more like automobiles, with pedals and a steering wheel. A UTV (“utility terrain vehicle”) is intended to be driven off-road on difficult terrain where a truck is impractical. UTVs are intended to carry supplies in remote locations, so there is plenty of space for anything you want to bring with you on your tour.
