Winter in Indianapolis requires you to own a car that can handle slippery roads with confidence. If you need a new all-wheel drive crossover to make driving in Indianapolis in the winter easier and safer, consider the following three vehicles.
Volkswagen, a well-respected brand of German cars, designs and tests its cars to make sure that they can withstand the intense winter weather in Germany. Features that give the Tiguan a special edge in Indianapolis’ winter weather include: a 200-horsepower turbo engine, a 2,200-pound towing capacity, optional fog and cornering lamps, a premium, cozy interior and optional all-wheel drive.
Built for the great outdoors, the Subaru Forester is a small crossover with plenty of features to keep you comfortable, safe, and fully mobile this winter. Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive—a system that constantly sends power to all four wheels, while other systems simply kick in after slippage is detected, comes standard. All of which makes navigating snow and slippery roads a breeze. Other things that make the Subaru Forester great for winter climates include a ground clearance that is two inches above what your average crossover offers and lots of cargo space for all of your winter gear. Convenience features like Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry, and a height-adjustable driver seat make the Forester incredible cozy for winter driving too.
With a new four-cylinder engine, suspension system, and continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Subaru Outback should be one of your top choices if you’re looking for a crossover that can handle any weather. As with most new Subarus, the Outback comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel drive and Vehicle Dynamics Control as standard equipment. Even the base model Subaru Outback comes with roof rack rails with crossbars that fold out into crossbars, making it easier to attach your snowboard or even a bike.
