Four Cars Packed Full of Winter Readiness

The winter time is a dangerous time for drivers. It is a time where the roads get icy. It is a time where temperatures drop. And it is a time where snow plays havoc. And, for many, the winter time is right around the corner.

If the winter time is just around the corner for you, and you are a driver, then it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to successfully circumvent it without so much as a bump or a scratch to your car. And the best way to do this is to get yourself a new car, a car that is packed full of winter readiness. For advice on the best cars out there today that are cut in this ilk, make sure to read on.

Subaru Levorg

When you think of a car as winter ready, you think of it as being a strong, workhorse or a car, don’t you? You think of it as being able to handle any terrain and any condition, don’t you? Well, if this is what you think a winter ready car is like, and this is what you expect of a winter ready car, then you wouldn’t be disappointed with the Subaru Levorg. Like many of its Subaru cousins, this is a car that knows how to put a shift in when the going gets tough. But, it is set aside from its Subaru cousins in the winter readiness department because of how specifically winter ready it is; it has a CVT automatic gearbox, and any petrol heads out there will know that this is a huge factor when it comes to navigating not-so-nice roads.

Fiat Panda 4×4

No matter what you might think when you see the Fiat Panda 4×4, this is a car that knows what it’s doing in the winter time. It may come with a very pretty look, but it is just about as practical as any car can be in harsh winter conditions. So, don’t judge a book by its cover, and don’t judge the Panda before you’ve tried it!

This is car that is packed full of mobility, thanks in part to its heavy duty suspension, which ultimately means it knows how to successfully circumvent the roads. And it is a gritty car, too, thanks to its mud-and-snow tyres, its lifted body and all the rigid protection that is built into its body, which means that when the going gets tough in the winter, it will be more than up to the challenge.

Suzuki Swift

If staying very much on the road is your goal this winter — which, quite frankly, it should be — then buying a car like the Suzuki Swift should be atop of your to-do list. Why? Because this is a car that stays planted to whatever it is driving on — that’s just what it does!

It comes ready made with the very handy ALLGRIP system, and the name of this system should tell you everything there is possibly to know about it. It is a system that grips to whatever it drives on, no matter the condition or terrain of it, which means it makes staying on road during the winter as easy as staying on the road during the summer. And if, for whatever reason, you did find yourself sliding off the roads this winter, then this car would be able to adapt to whatever other terrain you find yourself driving on. This is helped greatly by the SZ5 trimming found on the Suzuki’s wheels.

Range Rover Sport

What sort of list documenting the best winter cars would this be if a Range wasn’t included on it? But the Range that makes it on to this list, the Range Rover Sport SUV, very much deserves to be here because of what it offers in the winter-readiness department, not just because it comes from a family of illustrious winter drivers.

The Sport offers off-road winter driving qualities that are unrivalled in the world of off-road driving, and when a car can drive off-road with ease, then roads are of course nothing to them. What’s more, the Sport is a car that feels small despite its large stature, which means that it is robust enough to tackle the harsh weather of winter, and it is mobile enough to avoid any and all challenges that winter throws at it. And, for those of you that want a car that looks like it was born to ride in the winter, the Sport is that car.

The winter is a tough time to be a driver, there are no two ways about it. As soon as the temperatures drop and the frost, ice or snow set in, everything about driving becomes ten times harder. And, because driving becomes ten times harder, you have ten times more chance of being involved in an accident on the road and having to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer, such as But, you can beat these odds and you can avoid having to get in touch with an accident lawyer by getting yourself a car that comes winter ready. And you can further increase your odds of staying safe on the roads during the winter by tending to whatever car you do buy, and tending to it properly. This means checking over your tyres before each drive that you embark on for damage and wear and tear. It means ensuring that they are up to the task of driving on icy and snowy conditions and that their trims are strong enough to do so. And it means being prepared to buy new tyres if needs be.

And, when it comes to getting yourself a car that comes with built in winter readiness, make sure to take the cars listed above into account. They will be sure to get you from A to B and all the way to Z if you want them to, no matter the terrain and no matter the weather. And, you may even find yourself a car that is perfect for you, even once the winter has passed.
