With a set of snow tires it is excellent in up to a foot of snow. If you are over 6 feet tall you may have to lean the seat back a bit to drive but no matter your height, this car will reward you with years and years of trouble free performance driving. I bought my 1996 240sx SE with 20K on the odometer and have put over 60K on it to date. Maintenance is very very very low on this vehicle! There is NO timing belt to break and destroy your engine either. Nissan uses a chain. My fuel economy over the years: lowest 25 mpg, Highest was 35 mpg. Specs: 5-speed SE, California emissions. I have smoked the tires and redlined it for years regularly without an issue. It's a rare gem.
Performance, rear wheel drive, road feel, balance, size, visibility out all angles, low maintenance, cost to operate, fuel economy; 25 mpg lowest 27-28 avg. Mpg (70% city 30% hwy).
2 inches more head room for taller drivers. A Turbo option (US). Make & sell it again using the same formula!
