SPARTANBURG, S.C. - KYMCO USA's side-by-side model lineup gets a bump in power with the new 2014 UXV 700i. The four-wheeler will be available in four different trim models, including a basic version.

A utility-class SxS, the UXV 700i is powered by a fuel-injected 695cc single-cylinder 4-stroke, four-valve engine and puts out a claimed 45 horsepower. It also features an automatic Continuously Variable Transmission with differential lock.
