What are the best cars for driving on snow and ice?

"I live in Upstate New York, where the winters can be pretty bad. I’m looking for a car that handles well in winter weather conditions. Which ones should I consider?


“You should be looking for an all-wheel-drive vehicle to drive on snow and ice. Nearly all automakers have at least one all-wheel-drive vehicle in their lineup, so it really comes down to personal preference. I personally like the Dodge Charger AWD because of its available options and its sportiness. “
