#1 Subaru Outback

It’s rare to drive in the snowy states like Colorado, Vermont and Minnesota and NOT see a Subaru model on the road.

There’s a reason for the overwhelming popularity of Subaru vehicles in states with harsh winters.

They are some of the best performing vehicles in snow and ice available. It’s hard for any other automaker to compete.

The Subaru Outback is one of the automaker most popular models. A large wagon (seemingly getting bigger and bigger every year) the car blends all wheel drive performance with an elevated ground clearance that allows it to plow through snow similarly to an SUV.

The Subaru AWD system outperforms other AWD technology because of the way power is distributed. The symettrical system evenly distributes power for maximized protection, instead of the alternative slip-then-grip system.

Driving this car in the snow will likely affirm why so many darn people own one.

  • MPG: 25 city/33 highway/29 combined
  • Engine: 2.5L
