The market is now awash with capable SUVs, many of which come in environmentally friendly, two-wheel-drive form for buyers who value style over substance or practicality. Manufacturers still understand the importance of off-road, all-weather ability – and with winter coming, many buyers are turning to these cars for peace of mind in adverse weather.
But you needn’t splash out on a flagship SUV like the BMW X5 or Porsche Cayenne if you want to stay on the move through the winter. Bargain vehicles like the Dacia Duster and Suzuki Jimny offer all the ability of upmarket 4x4s at a fraction of the price. What's more, plenty of manufacturers now offer standard road cars with all-wheel-drive running gear – look no further than the Audi TT quattro if you want a sports car with all-weather ability.
So if you’re in the market for a capable winter car, be sure to check out our top 10.
