The four-wheel-drives to get you through the winter

The four-wheel-drives to get you through the winter


With so many four-wheel-drive vehicles on offer today, which one should you opt for? We’ve picked out some of the best on the market. 

The cold weather is with us, bringing frostier starts and, for many people, the chance of snow and ice on the roads. This change in road conditions really makes an impact, too, and it’s where the added security of a four-wheel-drive can really pay dividends. 

But with so many on offer today, which one should you opt for? We’ve picked out some of the best on the market. 

What are the best four-wheel drive cars for Winter?

Land Rover Defender

Land Rover definitely had a tough act to follow with its Defender replacement, but it looks like it has definitely exceeded expectations. The new Defender is just as brilliant as its predecessor off-road - if not better - but brings improved on-road manners and a comfortable cabin.

It’s also got loads of great interior features and can be specified in either 90 or 110 short- and long-wheelbase options.

Audi A4 Allroad

Not all four-wheel-drives have to be SUVs. The Audi A4 Allroad is a great example. It’s based on the regular A4 Avant, but incorporates a lifted suspension setup and specifically tuned quattro all-wheel-drive for improved prowess off-road.

When you’re back on the road, the Allroad is just as comfortable as a regular A4. It’s a great compromise, in truth

Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar’s classy F-Pace might look like an SUV that would falter in tricky conditions, but that’s not the case. It’s packed with off-road technology which helps it to go far further than you might expect.

It’s got plenty of ground clearance for getting over larger obstacles, yet still rides comfortably when you’re back on the tarmac.

SEAT Ateca

Many mid-size SUVs do without a complex all-wheel-drive system. After all, many buyers never venture off the beaten track, so the extra capability isn’t often required.

However, SEAT does offer the option of an all-wheel-drive Ateca, for those who want a bit of extra traction from their stylish SUV.
