The Top 8 Cars for Winter

As the colder weather begins to settle in, it’s time to start thinking about the right car for winter. Whether it’s a car that can handle any type of weather or one that can handle icy roads, there’s a dealer out there waiting with the perfect car. This list shows some of the best picks for winter driving.

Chevrolet Suburban

If you live in an area that frequently sees several inches of snow, such as Colorado or Utah, you’ll need a vehicle that can handle icy terrain. A dealer favorite, the Chevy Suburban is known for its ability to haul large loads and blaze through snow like it was never there.

Ford Fusion

No car dealer can keep the Fusion on the lot for long. Fusions come available with several different engine choices as well as all-wheel drive. It has no problem handling snow and ice, and it’s one of the more affordable vehicles on the list.

Toyota 4Runner

Toyota’s 4Runner has over 20 years of experience with tough road conditions. When it comes to deep snow, the 4Runner is practically unbeatable. Go for the 4Runner with 4-wheel drive and it’ll be unstoppable.

Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is the definition of an all-terrain vehicle. No matter the conditions on the road surface, the Wrangler can take care of it. Not even the highest snow-peaked mountain in Utah could keep it down.

Subaru XV Crosstrek

Subarus have created quite a niche for themselves as safe, reliable cars. The Crosstek is as safe as they come with high clearance, all-wheel drive and a natural ability to get through snowy conditions. Subaru has also included heated seats and windshield de-icers standard.

Mini Cooper

While the Mini Cooper might seem like a surprising choice, this little machine can pack a punch on a variety of road conditions. With front-wheel drive, electronic driving aids, and its lightweight build, the Cooper is one of the best vehicles on the road.

Subaru Outback

Any Subaru would make a suitable car for winter. The Outback packs the same punch as larger, clunkier SUVs without all the mass. It has excellent ground clearance and is the car to buy for driving without drifting. Subarus are among the most popular cars in Idaho, Utah and Colorado, which see several feet of snow each year.

Ford Flex

Yet another Ford makes the list of top cars for winter. The Ford Flex offers all-wheel drive and sound handling capabilities. The Ford Flex doesn’t require increased ground clearance or chains on the tires to claim its spot as a winter car; it’s perfectly capable of handling snowy roads all on its own.
