I had a Honda Civic and a Toyota Echo. Both great cars......but the SX4 is by far better for Québec. If you never tried a AWD Car in snow, you should. It's better by far. I have nothing against the Kia. Good car......But I'll watch them jerking in the snow while I pass them

Yup, stepping down from AWD to 2WD is a time for reckoning, and it will test your driving skills. But I lived in snow country for most of my life and never did have an AWD car. I had to make due with 2WD and/or FWD only. I had No snow tires and no chains, but I was still expected to drive about 1000 miles a week in all kinds of weather. (company cars)

I did it, and every day I got home safely. It makes little difference what car I'm now driving. (it's definitely NOT a Suzuki) When you don't have 4WD, you just do things a little bit differently. Or you stay home. Eh?

I can drive a 2WD car on snow and ice..... but many can't.
Know your limitations and drive accordingly. OK?

Cheers Mates!

It's not about what can and can't be done. It's more about how you wanna live with it. I never had an accident in almost 20 years of 40000+ km each years with FWD and even RWD cars and vans, with or without snow. My friend has a Kia forte. Very nice car. Nothing wrong with it.....but when we got 62 cm of snow before christmas, he was badly stuck....I was not. He was pushing and shovellig....I was not. His clothes were all wet....mine were not. And he had back pain after....I had none.......This is one of the reasons I drive a AWD car. I respect people choosing the hard way, but it's not for me. Good luck with your choice!!!
