As a retired professional truck driver I have drive numerous cars and trucks over the years, but never on that has handled as well in the snow.
With 5 men and their luggage we went over the mountain pass when chains or all wheel drive were required.
No problem with power or traction.
We passed everything on the road.
We saw at least a dozen 4 wheel drive vehicles and 18 wheelers in the ditch.
It cut through the deep heavy slush without a problem.
It's too crowded in the back seat with 3 adults. but 2 adults and a child would be ok.
