Best cars for snow and iceBack

It is that time of year when we start thinking about snow and the havoc which it can cause on the roads during winter. It is sensible to consider what your car is capable of, and if it is unable to cope with the onslaught of snow and icy conditions, it might be worth investing in some winter tyres.

Alternatively, if you are thinking about buying a new or used car or trading your existing car in, you might benefit from doing some research into the best cars for snow. Certainly, the type of cars that should be avoided in snowy conditions is higher performance rear-wheel drive cars which contain big wheels and wide tyres – in fact anything sporty is probably a no go.

Four-wheel drive cars are some of the best cars in snow and will see you through the worst of conditions providing vehicles offer good traction control and stability control systems.

If you are not sure which are the best cars for snow and ice this season, the team at Trusted Dealers has listed a few of their favourite choices below.
