Subaru vehicles are known for their rugged dependability, particularly in the ice and snow. That’s why Subaru has earned a reputation as the winter-friendly manufacturer. Their line-up includes sedans, hatchbacks and crossovers.
The models all have a stellar reputation for supporting bad-weather and all-weather driving. Here are just a few reasons why Subaru vehicles stand above the rest as the perfect choice for ice and snow.
- All-Wheel Drive: This is always the first thing you’ll hear about when we discuss Subaru. It’s this road-gripping symmetrical all-wheel drive functionality that really sets these vehicles apart.
- Weight Distribution: The 50-50 weight distribution is the balance of a Formula-1 race car. That gives the car better handling capabilities in the snow and ice.
- Viscous Coupling: It transfers torque from the transmission shaft to the differentials, while varying the torque.
- Clearance: The clearance isn’t always a factor in ice and snow, but when it is, the Subaru is ahead of the rest. The vehicle clearance supports more flexibility in handling off-road and deep-snow conditions.
Subaru has a reputation for manufacturing the best winter-friendly vehicle for a reason. The company estimates that there are 2.4 million Subaru vehicles on the road, and they’ve snagged the top spot for customer satisfaction.
Part of that high satisfaction rating is because customers feel like Subaru listens to them, and delivers what they need, but a very big part of that rating is just what we’re talking about here.
The Subaru vehicles hold up in on rough terrain in snow, sleet and ice. Subaru has proven to their customers that the vehicles really are perfect for snow (and all sorts of other weather too)!
