Best cars for winter
While most 4x4 owners will never take their cars off road, increasingly unpredictable weather means that the case for owning a four-wheel-drive car is getting ever stronger.
Although four-wheel drive means that your car will have more grip in all weather conditions, it has traditionally come at the cost of increased fuel consumption and high CO2 emissions. This is something that even big 4x4s like the Range Rover Sport are starting to address, though.
Aside from the added grip of four-wheel drive, SUVs have proved popular in the UK thanks to their upright driving positions and tall interiors.
For our list of the 10 Best Cars for Winter, we have focused on models that offer the benefits of four-wheel drive, while returning solid mpg and emissions figures, so keep reading for a guide to some of the UK's best winter cars.
