The game-changing Maverick X3 MAX vehicle features the same sophisticated blend of defiant design, precision handling and exceptional power the two-seat Maverick X3 vehicle delivers, but also presents new levels of comfort and control to the multi-passenger segment of the off-road market.
The two-seat Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has established itself as one of the off-road industry's most appealing off-road vehicles from its initial launch.

“The 2017 Can-Am Maverick X3 MAX side-by-side vehicle builds upon the industry-altering advancements achieved with the two-seat Maverick X3 unveiled last year by delivering new levels of performance, handling and passenger comfort to the four-seat segment of the market,” explained Anne-Marie LaBerge, senior vice president, Global Brands, Marketing and Communications at BRP. “It positions Can-Am to meet market demands for a clear leader in the four-person sport segment and adheres to our forward-thinking approach when it comes to innovation, design and refining the consumer experience.”
The all-new Maverick X3 MAX side-by-side vehicle goes all-out in delivering its own blend of off-road dynamism for multiple passengers. The extremely bold Can-Am character and Maverick X3 family DNA is instantly enhanced with the expanded and spacious Ergo-Lok cockpit and longer chassis.
All four seats in the Maverick X3 MAX vehicle are on the same level, giving every passenger a similar experience while seated low in the cockpit.

The rear seats have 2” (5.1 cm) of height adjustment and up to 4” (10.2 cm) of forward adjustment. The rear passenger space also has up to 18 percent more seat pitch than the closest industry competitor for ample legroom. Full rear quarter doors and strategically placed passenger grab handles and footrests further enrich passenger ergonomics and comfort.
