Kelly Blue Book reveals what vehicles are the most suitable for winter driving

Article by Christian A., on December 29, 2011

After a thorough investigation by the editors of Kelley Blue Book.com on what vehicles are the most suitable for winter driving, they determined that the 2012 Range Rover Evoque is the best of all the 2012 models available. The other models that made it to the top 10 list are quite a diverse range, including cars, minivans, SUVs and trucks.

These are: (2) Subaru Impreza; (3) Jeep Grand Cherokee, (4) Chevrolet Traverse AWD; (5) Audi A6 Quattro 3.0T; (6) Honda CR-V AWD; (7) Ford F-150 4x 4; (8) Acura MDX; (9) Toyota Sienna AWD; and (10) Subaru Outback. What all these models offer are either an all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive system that’s user friendly and is designed to maintain traction in slippery conditions.

The top 10 winter driving vehicles are “machines” that help keep the driver on the road whether it’s a trip to the ski resort, to work, or to get away from the city for the weekend, according to KBB.com executive editorial director Jack R. Nerad.

The Evoque has actually been recognized for its excellence several times since it was launched last year. KBB.com describes the Evoque to be “the smallest, lightest and most fuel-efficient model” to come out from Land Rover’s lineup. In addition, it features an intelligent all-wheel drive system, Terrain Response feature and Tri-mode Adaptive Dynamics suspension that maintain ride and handling at its optimum level under all types of conditions.

Land Rover Range Rover LRX concept car was globally acclaimed for its thrilling new interpretation of classic design cues typical of Range Rover. These cues are now re-translated elegantly into the new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, without compromising core Range Rover values of refined performance, interior luxury and all-terrain capability.

Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern described the new Range Rover Evoque as a bold evolution of Range Rover design as it adopts new interpretations of classic Range Rover design cues while keeping the core Range Rover values. He remarked that the new Evoque features a dynamic profile with a powerful and sporty stance accentuated by the vehicle’s dramatic rising beltline, muscular shoulder and a characteristic taper to the floating roofline.

McGovern added that this purposeful stance was born by pushing the wheels out to the four corners, with wide wheel arches subtly integrated into the body. The new Evoque’s sculpted corners help reduce its visual front and rear overhangs. Inside, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is gifted with an immaculately crafted and luxuriously comfortable interior, thanks to its elegant cabin design and the use of premium quality materials.
