well.. ill be honest here... i bought a polaris afew years ago and got another one just now -why ? well because im confident about it. in 3 years i have not had any problem at all. i rode maybe 3 can ams for a long period of time, winter, summer and in the spring.
i mean nothings bad about the can am but my preferences say polaris.
here are afew pros and cons.
polaris: smooth ride, amazing awd/4x4, lock and ride, look/design, and of course quality.
cons: the only thing i can think of is fuel consumption but i guess hey. gotta pay to play right? pus weight IF its an issue for you, but it wont be as the difference is small.
can am: pros: sporty, look, technologies .
cons: awd in SOME situations. quality, roughness.
now im not saying the can ams are bad but afew of my friends had way more problems than me.
ill be honest here. and give you a good comparison, the polaris x2/2up are like the cadilac pickup, confortable , classy, powerful.
the polaris xp/other models are like SUV, comfy , powerful, can do anything with them, they go everywhere.
can am: its like a AWD audi. i mean its FASTER than the polaris, it looks better to some, but when it comes to go offroad , youll be stuck more, and by the time you get there, you will be sore from every single bump on the road.
hope i helped.
