That doesn't make any sense, FWD is much better to drive in winter conditions instead of AWD. With AWD the back of your car starts slipping if you even give a little gas in a turn (in the winter). You can't believe how many BMW's and Audi's I see around here who got of the road by slipping. If you can drive with ADW in the winter, the better for you. But if you aren't that experienced with driving, FDW is much better to start with in the winter. ADW owns, but in the winter I would rather have a FDW then AWD, or even better just give me a quattro
That's cause people don't know how to drive. And don't even think about saying you can't drift and control oversteer in awd. Straight up not true
Assuming you know how to drive in the snow,
Nothing > ice. So Those people in awd cars who are still spinning out should get driving lessons.
1 performance driving lesson > infinite sets if snow tires
