In a quad, the driver and passenger share a seat behind each other, without the possibility of a backrest for the driver.
Buggies are also called “side by side” as both driver and passenger are side by side. Each has a seat with a seat belt.
The suspensions in the buggies are designed to have the least possible impact on the driver and passenger, when in the quad, all the imperfections of the terrain, whether potholes, rocks or slopes, is cushioned in the arms of the driver, in his body especially in the lumbar area, and he must have control over the vehicle resulting in making an extra effort to maintain balance in the same.
As we have already mentioned, in the buggy there are seats and a seat belt for each passenger. On the other hand, in the quad, one rides free, with the passengers’ bodies bearing the brunt of the impact in the event of an accident.
It is worth noting that, in a buggy, we are protected by a metal “box” formed by the roll bars, which protect the occupants in the event of an accident, making it safer than a conventional car or off-road vehicle.
