Best Cars for Winter
The original MINI was a small wonder on the racing circuit even during winter rallies. Todays car manages to impress as well, not with all wheel drive but by making the most of its front wheel drive, light weight and electronic aids. Beyond the obligatory antilock brakes, those most helpful include All Season Traction Control (ASTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC a real help in reducing understeer). Even if all this kills some of the fun youd otherwise have in an empty, snow filled parking lot, at least you can remain in control when it really counts.
