Which are the new cars to have when snow comes – again? image

There’s another “snowpocalypse” going on these days on the East Coast of the United States – which is not really unexpected for this time of year. But how about getting yourself ready for the next one?

For those who now sit in the comfort of their homes and just wait for the blizzard to end, this particular story might not come in handy – but for those who sit at home or at work because they know their car might not survive a trip to the convenience store, here are some great new cars to be had if they want to make a snow-proof switch. A note to begin with – we actually believe that almost all of Subaru’s range would fit the bill so we’ll just concentrate on other choices that might not be that obvious.

To begin with, we have the business magnate that won’t let a storm chase him out of his busy schedule – for him we have the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo xDrive. It’s not that ugly as its larger 5 Series brethren and comes with humongous space and lots of comfort for the back-seat dweller

For the families with numerous kids, dogs, tortoises and other pets, we hive the thumbs up to the Toyota Sienna AWD, a seven-seater that adds as an optional some weather-proofing all-wheel drive. If you’re a family guy/gal and love the outdoors or practice sports, you might want to consider the Volvo XC70 T6 AWD or the Audi Allroad series.

If you want to buy your teenager a stylish, yet still affordable and safe car you could opt for the Mini Countryman ALL4S – a very practical compact crossover that has lots of life hiding under the hood. If you’re shopping for the other half, you could go for the Acura TL SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive) or if you do some egotistical choosing, you might want to consider the Lexus GS 350 AWD.
