Many parts of Indianapolis received their first snow flurry last week. While snow may seem a little premature, preparing for this upcoming winter isn’t.

Winters in Indiana can range from mild to severe. However this year the Farmer’s Almanac predicts that Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan will have a “biting cold and snowy” winter. Everyone who hopefully hums the song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas,” may just get lucky.

Driving This Winter

If conditions will be as snowy and slippery as predicted, will you have a safe vehicle to drive? Perhaps it’s time to sell your car and purchase a vehicle made to handle inclement weather. In January, Kelley Blue Book released an article called “10 Best Cars for Winter.” Below are the top four picks:

1. 2013 Audi Allroad®: The Audi quattro® all-wheel-drive delivers extra power to the wheels that need it most. It also has a lower center of gravity.

2. 2013 Land Rover Range Rover: Over 700 pounds lighter than the previous model, this vehicle still expertly handles snow, ice, and other slippery situations.

3. 2013 Jeep® Grand Cherokee: Jeeps are renowned for their four-wheel-drive. Drivers can also easily adjust traction by pushing a button.

4. 2013 Subaru Outback: The crowning feature of this SUV is its high-quality all-wheel-drive. It grips the road better than most vehicles.
