Can an SUV go Off-Road?
SUV cars are known to be sturdier, but how do they fare off-road? Here, Michelin describes if an SUV can go on off-road adventures.
Are SUVs good in the snow?
SUVs are designed in a fashion that places particular emphasis on height and road positioning.
The vehicle was established to handle slippery difficult conditions and their technology and four-wheel drive attributes only help to promote this. Most SUVs with smart technology allow drivers to opt between driving modes, including a shift of power to the front wheels. For optimum performance in snowy conditions, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can handle the weather-affected roads with ease while comfortably carrying five adults and added luggage.
For tyres, you can get all-season, summer, and winter versions for your SUV. The performance of your car can greatly vary depending on your choice of tyre in different seasons. For example, for a compact SUV such as the Audi RS Q2, the optimum tyre in summer would be the Pilot Sport 4 or 4S. In the winter you would benefit from changing to Pilot Alpin 5 tyres. For all-season options, the Switch Summer/Winter option is suited to this car, while other models such as the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Kodiaq can be driven on CrossClimate+ tyres during every season.
