This is a stupid list.  Not one mention of the world's only true winter safety vehicle...VOLVO?!  I have a 2002 V70XC with 210,000 miles on it.  Equiped with DTSC, anti-lock brakes, winter four-wheel lock and capable of starting off in 1st, 2nd or 3rd gear (Geartronic automatic) this is a car that will travel anywhere in our Rocky Mountain winters.  It averages around 29 mpg in it's daily 90 mile commute, pulls a camping trailer in the summer and is a very underated luxury car.  Easier and less expensive to repair than most people think too.  I've put in about $2,000 in repairs (new axles , turbo leak and new timing belt service) and I'll go another 200,000 miles.

07 Subaru Forester  XT Automatic. 33-36mpg highway.  Cobb access port tuner, turbo back exaust and cold air.  0-60 in 4.3 @ 32 deg temp .  Keeps up with Z06 Vett until 120.  My mods costed 1800. This is typical of any Subaru 2.5l Turbo Modified.

I purchased the Nissan Juke because of the raised seating position and the "claimed" fuel economy.  I'm always in 'ECO' mode, easy starts in traffic and no more than 65 mph.  I have not once achieved 25 mpg even on a straight highway run. The CVT is always 'hunting' I need to go 5 mph above the speed I desire then slow back down to get the rpm's to drop.  Very disappointing fuel economy.  also cargo space is very limited and Premium fuel is recommended.

And half of these cars would be a joke in winter snow and ice. Mazda,Cadillac, Nissan juke, Mini copper would be dead in the snow and ice. A Mini in 3-4 inches of snow would begging for a subaru owner to pull them out of the snow bank. And Suzuki is no longer making cars in america and not to mention Mitsubishi and there now low sales and pending bankruptcy.

The only car I would trust is a Subaru any model and def my Outback and being the few cars that WSP allow to cross the passes in western washington.  Subaru AWD is in its own vs the other so called AWD.

I live in the Northwestern part of Pa ( Erie) and my Suzuki SX4 does great on these snow covered highways and byways! Something that was left out of this, The SX4 has the abitilty to be LOCKED into four wheel drive up to 37 MPH. With a decent set of snow thires these things move. Also the CVT ( automatic ) transmission works better than the six speed. I read a post about someone whining about 40 miles per gallon, change the air filter to a K&N and in mine (2007 SX4 awd) I usually see on avaverage 36.3 miles per gallon! If you want higher go buy one of those" Hybrids".

The Nissan Juke has to be the ugliest car ever built but all of the rice burners are ugly
