Best SUVs to Drive in the Snow

VW SUV in Snow


Winter months in Chicago and Northbrook can be quite a hassle. From frigid temperatures to treacherous roads, drivers have a lot to be concerned about. Because of this, you may be wondering about the best SUVs to drive in the snow. If so, you will want to look at the Volkswagen lineup. Both the Tiguan and the Atlas are smart choices for Park Ridge drivers. See why these SUVs can tackle the snow with ease with Jennings Volkswagen.

The Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan can be equipped with the brand’s 4MOTION® AWD system, which helps to distribute power between the front and rear wheels. This system helps to deliver the best possible traction for a more stable drive when conditions are slick and icy.

Additionally, the Tiguan gives you the option to select “SNOW MODE.” By doing so, you are able to upshift sooner so that the Tiguan can stay at a lower RPM range. This helps slow down the power sent to the wheels so that it doesn’t happen to fast for road conditions.

The Volkswagen Atlas

The Volkswagen Atlas can also be equipped with 4MOTION® with Active Control. This system allows you to be prepared for anything your vehicle comes across. Whether the conditions are dry, rainy, rough, or even snowy, you are able to select the perfect drive mode for the situation.

Do I Need Winter Tires?

Although vehicles equipped with 4MOTION® AWD are well-equipped to handle slick roads, it is still a smart idea to equip your vehicle with winter tires. The team at Jennings Volkswagen would be glad to help you find the perfect set for your model. Why should you opt for winter tires?

  • Winter tires are made with special rubber designed to withstand colder temperatures without hardening.
  • Winter tires provide better traction thanks to deeper treads and more prevalent siping.
  • When encountering slippery roads, many drivers instinctively try to slam on the brakes, which can lead to skidding. Winter tires can decrease the likelihood of skidding by as much as 30 percent.
  • As the snow melts, water accumulates on the roads. Winter tires decrease the chance of hydroplaning on wet roads.
  • Winters tires maneuver more easily in the snow because they are thinner, and therefore there is more pounds per square inch of pressure on them.
