Welcome, the pros that I like about the HDX is the bench seat, larger bed that converts to a flat bed. You might check out the accessories available to make sure you can get what you want.

Welcome to the forum! The 700 engine makes for decent performance, bench seat is a plus! Cargo Box/Flatbed at 1,000 Lbs. capacity is great, the storage compartments on both sides is handy. All positives points from my view! Prowler reliability has improved through the years, and they have kept their basic design. Resale value on the Prowlers in my area seem to be on the rise, and most new prowlers where we live seem to be HDX's. Great Machine IMHO!

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels.

My wife might go for a HDX now that they have it in Red, she didn't like the other colors.

Just glancing at the specs I would get the Limited version it has the differential lock.

The only cons I can think of the Prowler are they are a little noisy with the whine of the belt, and aftermarket parts aren't as plentiful as the more popular brands. However, on the noise front, I don't really have any experience with other brands. So I really don't know how noisy they are in comparison.

They HDX looks like a nice setup with the bench seat and larger bed. It would definitely come in handy for what I use my Prowler for.
