Sam­ple Selec­tion of KBB.com’s 2013 List of the 10 Best Cars for Winter

2013 Audi All­road
Return­ing to the U.S. after a seven-model-year hia­tus, the 2013 Audi All­road lives up to its name by com­bin­ing Quat­tro all-wheel drive and extra ground clear­ance with a lower cen­ter of grav­ity than sim­i­larly sized crossovers. With a tur­bocharged engine and leather as but­tery as its 8-speed trans­mis­sion, the Audi All­road is one haute hauler.

2013 Sub­aru Out­back
Not all all-wheel drive sys­tems are cre­ated equal. Subaru’s sym­met­ri­cal all-wheel-drive sys­tem has an almost uncanny abil­ity to find grip in the slick, which is why you can’t throw a snow­ball with­out hit­ting a Sub­aru. The Out­back wagon fur­ther ben­e­fits from its desir­able mix of sedan-like agility and SUV-like cargo room.

2013 Fer­rari FF
A four-wheel-drive Fer­rari may sound as odd as a two-door Fer­rari wagon, but the FF suc­ceeds as both. With seat­ing for four, tremen­dous trac­tion and a top speed of 208 mph, the $300,000 FF will whisk you to the ski chalet in record time.

2013 Ford Fusion
A mid­size sedan isn’t the first car that comes to mind when think­ing of the best ways to nav­i­gate slip­pery asphalt, but the 2013 Ford Fusion is avail­able with an all-wheel-drive ace up its sleeve. Pro­vid­ing year-round trac­tion along with a com­mand­ing, SUV-like view of the road ahead, the Ford Fusion AWD is eas­ily one of the most adapt­able sedans on the market.

2013 Toy­ota Sienna AWD
Most mini­vans deliver people-moving power and gen­eral util­ity to the nth degree, but when it comes to all-weather capa­bil­ity, the Toy­ota Sienna reigns supreme. As the only vehi­cle in the seg­ment able to send power to all four wheels, the Sienna is the exclu­sive choice for family-minded car shop­pers who need their prac­ti­cal­ity mixed with all-season versatility.
