Living in Salt Lake City we get a good amount of snow. Not nearly as much as where I’m from, Buffalo, NY.
I purchased a 2003 Subaru Outback this year and as long as you know how to drive in the snow a Subaru will get you almost anywhere you need to go safely. It uses a viscous Limited Slip Differential. I’m not an expert on all the types of drive variations but I can safely say I am more than elated with the way my Subaru performs in the snow.
I’ve driven past quite a few SUVs stuck spinning their wheels because they were rear wheel drive, so if you live in an area that gets snow regularly and want an SUV I recommend you make sure to get some form of 4 wheel drive and not a rear wheel drive vehicle. I ended up digging a neighbor in his BMW 545 out just yesterday. I’ve also had a rear wheel drive vehicle for a short while and it was simply not safe in the snow (putting weight in the back or not).
