The Pride Mobility Jazzy 1170 XL is a sturdy electric wheelchair weighing 314.5 pounds (142.7 kilograms) when you factor in the weight of the batteries. Due to its weight and the Active-Trac® Suspension, it can support passengers weighing up to 500 pounds (226.8 kilograms). Because of its weight, you will need to purchase and install a lift on your car if you are going to be transporting it long distances. You may also be inclined to purchase a separate van just to transport it, as some users do. In terms of turning radius, expect that you may be able to maneuver through some places relatively well, as the Pride Mobility Jazzy 1170 XL boasts a 26.75 inches (67.9 centimeters) turn radius. This is the best feature that we were able to find on the Jazzy 1170 XL, although in our opinion it is not that great of a feature. For the retail price of $4499 though, it may not be completely worth it, as there are other, more affordable electric wheelchairs on the market that are equipped with better features and specifications. Let's see how it stacks up against the EZ Lite Cruiser Standard and HD Heavy Duty Models:
