Think Subaru this winter

We are often lulled into a sense of false security by typical British weather. We expect it to be chilly and probably wet but snow... well, that’s something else altogether. While the rail services may be scuppered by the wrong leaves on the tracks, we are often slowed down by the wrong type of snow.

Of course, it is understandable. We are an island state. Our predominantly maritime climate means that we have to deal with very slippery slush, unlike the Scandinavians, who can compact and grade the snow to still drive on it.

Traction is better with AWD and all Subaru models feature an added bonus of permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for even greater assured grip. With the engine weight over the nose, front-drive cars have a slightly better chance of making headway in bad weather, while rear-drivers can all but forget hopes of gaining grip. There are no such issues with All-Wheel Drive.

When the weather turns for the worse, having All-Wheel Drive can help. There are no buttons to twiddle. You just start it and go. Traction on demand. Petrol or the more economical diesel. Subarus are made for snow but they do a pretty good job of making driving a lot safer and more economical during the rest of the year too.

The latest Forester and Outback have taken almost forty years to arrive at and they are the best by far over truly mixed surfaces. Boasting low centres of gravity and traction in abundance, a Subaru is the consummate all-weather transport vehicle for life in North Yorkshire, so it's just as well Derek Slack Motors are main dealers for Subaru, North Yorkshire.
