List of Vehicles Up for Launch This Winter and Ways to Keep Your Vehicles Healthy
|   Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Winter each year is not the same everywhere around the globe. This is also a very testing season for your vehicles, hence automakers test winter durability of a vehicle prior to launch. Fall winter, your high performance cars suddenly do not seem to be performing as well as they did back in summer. This is a common problem and cars have certain features which help them combat situations like these.

We have put together a list of basic guidelines aimed at helping people live through the harsh winter, along with their vehicles intact.
Most people would recommend a 4 x 4 SUV for travelling off road during the winter. However, what do you do in case you do not own a 4x4, this is exactly what this article is about. All wheel drive vehicles also have its benefits as they can switch between 4x4 and rear wheel drive at the flick of a switch.

Safety concerns are primary when you are looking at a probable winter vehicle. It is important that you look for a traction control enabled vehicle, if you live in a place with bad winter conditions. Most vehicles in these parts of the world come with standard Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control and a host of other drive aid measures. Hence, it is possible that your vehicle has everything which you will need.

Performance is not all that matters when you are looking for an efficient winter beater. Car makers try and unveil winter specific vehicles at this time of the year as it is bound to attract customers and push sales. Some of the best winter vehicles undoubtedly are Jeep's latest Cherokee 4x4, Land Rover Sport, Jeep Wrangler, Subaru Outback 3.6R, Subaru XV Crosstrek, Chevrolet Silverado High Country, Chevrolet Tahoe, Volvo XC70 T6 AWD etc.

These vehicles are up for a late 2013 launch. Hence, the market seems to be pretty spiced up for welcoming these newcomers. Even though many of these vehicles are present in the market, automakers claim that their latest version will sport upgraded components. The icing on the cake however is the Mini Countryman All4. This vehicle has been tested exclusively for off road and winter driving.

Mini originally starter as rally racing cars although in current times, they have grown into heavy machines, filled with luxury to please the rich. The All4 however has its rally genes intact and with its wide range of electronic assistance measures, it is a potent winter vehicle. Mini had this vehicle tested and it proved to be quite the vehicle, its ancestors would have been proud of.

However, this vehicle has its revs limited via electronic assistance. However, if you are unhappy with its performance, you are free to turn them off and continue in your path. Mini claims that these electronics will actually enhance the performance of the All4. This is a farfetched claim and tests had been conducted to confirm this claim. Even though this is quite helpful, human precision still wins.
