What are the Best Volkswagen SUVs to Drive in the Snow?

VW SUV in Snow

Many drivers dread the winter months in Plover and Wausau. However, for drivers behind the wheel of a Volkswagen SUV, that is not the case. What are the best Volkswagen SUVs to drive in the snow? Both the Tiguan and Atlas are up for the challenge. From frigid temperatures to treacherous roads, nothing is too tough for Volkswagen SUVs. See what makes them such a smart choice for Wisconsin Rapids drivers.

The Volkswagen Tiguan

You can choose to outfit your new Tiguan with the 4MOTION® AWD system. How does this feature work? It evenly distributes power between the front and rear wheels for optimal traction. Even when conditions are slick and icy, your Tiguan remains stable.

You can also choose “SNOW MODE” on your Tiguan when you encounter snowy weather. This feature gives you the chance to upshift sooner so that the Tiguan can stay at a lower RPM range. This slows the power sent to the wheels so that it doesn’t happen too rapidly for current conditions.

The Volkswagen Atlas

The Volkswagen Atlas is another SUV where you can add 4MOTION® with Active Control. Always be prepared for the road ahead no matter whether it is dry, rainy, rough, or even snowy. You can choose the right drive mode for the weather and conditions.

Do I Need Winter Tires?

4MOTION® AWD is great for handling slick roads, but you may also want to switch to winter tires for added peace of mind. We can help you locate the right winter tires for your car, truck, or SUV. Why should you consider winter tires this season?

  • Winter tires are comprised of special rubber that won’t harden or crack when temperatures drop.
  • Winter tires enhance traction because they are designed with deeper treads and more prevalent siping.
  • It is an instinct for most drivers to slam on the brakes when trying to stop on slippery roads. This can actually be quite dangerous. Winter tires can minimize the chance of skidding.
  • You will likely encounter wet roads when the snow starts to melt. Winter tires help to prevent hydroplaning.
  • Because winter tires are thinner and there are more pounds per square inch of pressure on them, they are able to maneuver better in the snow.
