Those are the ones I see most on the ditch, the heavy duty ones. Because the drivers feel invincible and pass you doing 80 mph during any conditions. The typical "get out of the way, hold my beer". People that grew up with snow seem to be the worse due to overconfidence.This thread is amusing. It's a cute ute with a basic level awd system. Any modern cuv will do fine in snow. Including Subaru, Honda, Ford, GM etc.
If you want real performance get a real truck like a 4runner or a tahoe.
And the posters who talk about stopping are right. That's all that matters.
Test after test shows that a sedan with snow tires often outperform a cute ute like rav4 with regular tires.
While our 2019 rav is fine, it is definitely lightweight and cheap feeling compared to our 4runner which feels like a bank vault.
It seems that people tend to believe the hybrid will not cut it. Don't know why, but even my wife's Prius (when she had it) with snow tires did fine.
