What Makes Subaru Vehicles So Popular for Winter Driving?

When it comes to tackling winter weather and poor road conditions around Kingston, NY and the surrounding Wappingers Falls and Poughkeepsie areas, nothing beats the level of capability and value awarded to you by every new Subaru vehicle. Subaru vehicles are designed and engineered to take on climates just like ours, providing you with a confident and carefree driving experience whether there's snow on the road or a wintery mix falling from the sky. At Colonial Subaru, we want you to be stay safe and have peace of mind when travelling during the winter. That's why we want to highlight some of the main reasons that Subaru vehicles are optimal choices when it comes to driving in winter weather.

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: With the exception of the rear-wheel drive Subaru BRZ, every new Subaru vehicle comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, providing you with the utmost traction, balance and gripping control when facing snow, ice, sleet, slush and more. By sending power to the wheels with the most torque, you can drive with confidence knowing that your Subaru vehicle is built to take on the elements with ease.
  • Subaru Boxer Engine: Every Subaru vehicle comes with a Subaru Boxer engine, which differ from other engines thanks to their horizontally opposed pistons. Because the pistons travel in a horizontal fashion rather than vertically or a in a v-shape, the Boxer engines are able to be placed lower in the vehicle, providing you with a lower center of gravity and therefore more stability.
  • 8.7-inches of Ground Clearance in All Subaru SUVs: Every Subaru SUV offers 8.7-inches of ground clearance, including the Outback, Forester, Crosstrek, and Ascent. With a high, commanding view of the road, you can traverse off road terrain, high snows, large puddles, and much more.
