Winter Driving Is Coming

Winter is coming, but do you have a car that cope with winter driving. It makes more sense to invest in a car that cope with icy roads because a car that can handle bad conditions can handle good ones too!

Here are the best cars for winter driving.

Dacia Duster

If you want to go off-road during the winter, there are lots of options. But there’s no need to splash the cash on an expensive off-roader when there are no so many good, cheaper models. The best one, in my opinion, is the Dacia Duster. There’s no car on the road, or off the road, that offers such good value for money.

Sure, it’s not exactly the most stylish car in the world, but when the prices are so low, there have to be a few sacrifices. It’s a rugged off-roader that does exactly what you want it to though.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet

It might seem strange to include a cabriolet on this list of cars for winter driving, but there are some benefits of it. This Mercedes model has an airscarf system installed which will help keep your head and neck warm on those cold days. You just turn it on, and the air vent blows warm air around your neck and shoulders.

It’s pretty luxurious, and it’s exactly what you need when the frost starts to bite, so this is a car that you shouldn’t dismiss for winter driving.

Volkswagen Up!

Not many people understand this, but one of the best ways to stay in control of a car on icy roads is to drive a car that’s light and has wheels with skinny tyres. That probably sounds like the opposite of what you’d expect, but it’s true. The Volkswagen Up! definitely fits this description.

And on top of all that, it also has less power in the front wheels which can help when driving a small car during winter. Volkswagen are known for the engineering prowess of their cars, and it’s no different with this one.

Audi TT

The Audi TT is like the more affordable version of the Audi R8. But it’s still a great car. Even though it’s cheaper, not much has been sacrificed. What makes it so good for driving in the winter is its fantastic quattro four-wheel drive system. This is what most people love about Audi vehicles most of all.

But the TT also has a really strong set of headlights that can prove invaluable during the cold, dark winter months. No manufacturer is better at lighting the road ahead than Audi.

Citroen C4 Cactus

One of the biggest problems that people associate with winter driving is slipping on the road. But that’s not actually the most likely way your car will be damaged. Yes, cars can skid into yours, but it’s most common that other, less seriously will happen.

Think about what happens in a car park at the shop if someone can’t control their trolley on the ice.

If it hits your car it could damage the paint. But the Citroen C4 Cactus avoids this fate because of the airbump panels that are attached to the side of the car. Any minor impacts simply bounce off it.
