The winter months are slowly creeping in on us and that means snow is heading our way, soon. Why not be prepared before the snow hits? Get behind the wheel of a vehicle that handles wonderfully in snow. Take on winter weather and the snow in a Subaru. In fact Forbes as well as Autbytel each list Subaru vehicles in their lists for best SUVs, Cars and Crossovers for snow. The Forester and Crosstrek are included in each list and the Forbes list includes the Outback, too.
The Snow in a Subaru Outback
Head out in the snow with peace of mind this winter. The Subaru Outback is a great choice for snowy-weather. With Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, it’s designed to have optimal balance and even distribution of power. This gives the car maximum traction and better stability. Plus, it’s also more efficient and has a quicker response to different road and weather conditions. Pair that with an 8.7 inches of ground clearance standard on all models, your Outback is set to safely cover almost any road.
Add the available Subaru EyeSight and make the most of an extra set of eyes on the road. And, an extra foot on the brake while you’re driving. Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is available on a few different Subaru models – the Outback included. It monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control and warns you if you sway outside your lane. There’s even a Pre-Collision Braking feature that can apply full braking force in emergency situations.
The Snow in a Subaru Crosstrek
The Crosstrek is another great option for driving in snow. With 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek can take on any road. The compact crossover size can also be to your benefit – it’s perfect for country roads or city streets. It has ample cargo space and is also fuel-efficient.
The Crosstrek boasts 51.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats down and 22.3 cubic feet with the seats up. Plus, the SUBARU BOXER engine has a horizontal layout. That means the Crosstrek can have a low center of gravity and an improved response.
The Snow in a Subaru Forester
Don’t let the winter weather stop you when you head out in the snow in a Subaru Forester. The Subaru Forester includes all sorts of features, including available 17- and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and 8.7 inches of ground clearance. The drive is agile and composed with a responsive, sport-tuned suspension. The springs and dampers give the 2.0XT Premium or 2.0XT Touring dynamic handling that’s both controlled and confident.
Enjoy the bold design of the new 2017 Subaru Forester. Plus, enjoy plenty of available features like the heated steering wheel, memory seating, a power panoramic moonroof, as well as Subaru STARLINK and drive assist systems.
