Don't Let Winter Win, Drive A Subaru

Snowmageddon or snowzilla, whatever you prefer to call it, has unleashed its fury on the eastern half of the country. The snowstorm caused dozens of flight cancellations, dumped over 26 inches of snow in New York City, and had many drivers saying, "I wish I was in a Subaru!" 

Why a Subaru? Because, Subaru sedans and SUVs provide the ultimate performance in snowy condition. In fact, in a reason survey conducted by Consumer Reports' three Subaru vehicles claimed the top three spots when rating SUV and wagon performance in snow; sweeping the competition. In the survey, the Outback took first place, the XV Crosstrek claimed second, and the Forester walked away with the bronze model; beating out other SUVs like the Audi Q5, Jeep Wrangler, and Toyota 4Runner. View the rest of the survey results here: 

Why are Subaru vehicles superior in snowy conditions? One reason is because every Subaru is fitted with Subaru's famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually keeps the power routed to all four wheels, ensuring outstanding grip in snow, rain, or rough terrain. Subaru's Symmetrical All Wheel Drive simply provides better traction, control and stability than other sedans and SUVs. 

Snowzilla might have spared Oklahoma and the Greater Tulsa Metro this time around; however, we're not out of the woods yet. Old man winter still has plenty of time to unleash a wintery mix of snow and ice. Stay prepared! In a new Subaru, from Ferguson Subaru, you'll have complete confidence and peace-of-mind, in the event Snowmageddon II decides to make a stop in Tulsa.
