Driving in winter is never fun, especially when you’re trying to second-guess every little adjustment you make on the steering wheel for fear of looking like Bambi on ice.
Fortunately you needn’t worry, as we have placed together a list of the top 5 cars for winter driving. So dump that old, unreliable bumper car and take a drive on the finer side of life.
The all-rounder – Citroen C4 Cactus
Have you ever seen a cactus in the snow? Well you have now, thanks to Citroen’s perennial puncher. Built like a tank and just as robust, this machine is both practical and affordable considering its size. Those quirky ‘Airpump’ panels on the side aren’t just a novelty either, as they can withstand and absorb any bumps or dings you face on your journey.
The economy option – Dacia Duster
It’s all well and good talking about buying a new car, but we don’t all have ‘new car’ money lying around. Well not to worry, because at just £9,495 the Dacia Duster is the cheapest off-roader in the UK today. Sure there are some compromises at that price – most notably its styling – but its handling and durability is where it makes it up.
The sensible driver – Nissan X-Trail
Take the road less traveled this winter with the Nissan X-Trail, the seven-seat SUV with room for all the family. No seriously, you could have your Christmas dinner in there it’s that spacious. Let’s not forget about the handling though, because that’s what makes it a contender for one of the best cars for winter driving. Smooth, sophisticated and a whole lot of fun.
The winter warmer – Kia Cee’d
The worst thing about winter – aside from the dangerous driving conditions it presents – is the cold. Nobody likes getting out of bed on a good day, let alone when the temperature reaches minus figures, but with the Kia Cee’d you get to take the warmth of home with you. The heated steering wheel and seats are a godsend, but the downside is you’ll have to leave eventually.
The tree hugger – BMW i3
From £299 per month
Like it or not, electric cars are here to stay. So if you’re going to buy one, at least go for the cool option. Introducing the BMW i3 and it’s incredible eco-friendly design, which by the way, makes it perfect for use in winter. Low emissions, intelligent tech and stylish looks make this a must-have.
