Cheap Kids ATVs - Best Values

By cheap kids atvs, we'll assume that to mean inexpensive or lower cost, rather than cheap quality or cheaply made. Lower cost but cheaply made ATVs rarely end being the cheapest to own and operate. But there is a good compromise between low cost and good value.  

In our opinion, the best value low cost atvs for small kids are electric. Electric atvs cost less, are easier to maintain, easier to operate, and can be easily upgraded for more performance as riders gain size and experience.

Top of the line electric atvs will cost less than the cheapest gas kids atvs. The gas atvs require much more maintenance and mechanical know how to operate.  

Gas atvs are fine for older, larger, and more experienced kids. They're not the best for beginners. And absolutely not for toddlers!

The Power Wheels models are made mostly of molded plastic, including wheels and tires. That can limit traction on many surfaces which is ok for small kids.

There are lots of styles to choose from in the Power Wheels line including sport style ATVs, dune buggies, and theme models like Barbie and Batman. 

For cheap kids ATVs, the Power Wheels models were the highest rated by owners.

Performance upgrade for Power Wheels.

Performance upgrades including higher voltage battery, more powerful motor, rubber tires, etc. are widely available. 

That allows you to get into a kids ATV for a relatively cheap price, and then upgrade performance without having to buy another higher priced model.

Don't get it wrong though, it won't equal the performance or toughness of the higher dollar Rosso or Razor models. But it is a good way to extend the useful life of what you already have.

Next level of performance are metal tube frame atvs with better suspension, more power and speed.
