When you first think of all-wheel-drive or even just good vehicles to drive in the wintertime, what do you think of? The first thing that comes to mind for most people are big, hulking SUVs that can carve through the snow without a care in the world. However, innovations in technology make that line of thinking outdated. While SUVs can be good wintertime vehicles, they aren’t your only options anymore, as even practical sedans come with all-wheel-drive now. Buick AWD sedans can provide you with family-friendly reliability in addition to the sort of capability needed to drive safely on slippery roads.
The reason why AWD is more effective in the winter than other options is simply because of traction. With front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, the vehicle is only propelling itself forward using two wheels, and if those wheels lose control, so does the rest of the car. If you have four wheels being operated by a motor instead of just two, you have double the backup in case some of your wheels slip.
That’s where Buick AWD sedans come in. You don’t have to sacrifice sleek style or bold performance for a big, gas-guzzling clunker if you want all-wheel-drive. The 2016 Lacrosse and Regal models both come with the option, allowing drivers the convenience of luxury sedans with the safety and comfort of AWD. If you still prefer the spacious interior and weight of a larger vehicle, the 2016 Enclave and Encore both also come with it, too. Buick cares about the well-being and peace of mind of their customers.
