Logic dictates we could include several Subarus in our review of great winter cars, and we do spotlight the Outback wagon here as well. However, neither it nor any other new Subie is as fun as the WRX. You really dont even need to bother with the STI to have a great winter car; the base WRX is really the way to go. Its all wheel drive package never seems to miss a beat, and the ride is tuned for more forgiveness. And if you drive on frost heaved expansion joint roads, you and your tailbone will appreciate this.
