Whether you've lived here your whole life or just moved here, you know that snow can be a part of life in Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen. When the streets and highways become snow-covered, you need a car that's ready for whatever Syracuse and Baldwinsville winters throw at you.

That's why Maguire Dealerships is highlighting some of the best used cars for snow. Our inventory is stocked with a range of pre-owned models, and many of them know how to handle the white stuff.

Audi A4

It's nice to be able to combine luxury and capability. The Audi A4 has been one of the more popular luxury vehicles in the industry in recent years, and it's prepared for any winter morning.

The A4 can be equipped with quattro® all-wheel drive, and many of the pre-owned models in our inventory do indeed carry this functionality. When the weather is throwing its worst at you, the all-wheel-drive functionality sends power to all four wheels. With the quattro® system delivering power to wheels with the most grip, it maximizes traction in wet weather.

However, the system doesn't stop there. Handling and cornering are enhanced in dry weather conditions with the available torque vectoring technology.

Honda CR-V

With Honda Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, the CR-V is adaptable and can handle slick conditions. The four-wheel drive system engages automatically when slick conditions are sensed. In all other driving situations, your CR-V will remain in front-wheel drive, which ensures the best possible fuel economy. It's only when slippage is detected that the Real Time system will become a factor.

When activated, the rear wheels drive the vehicle in addition to the front wheels, which makes it an all-wheel-drive car. The system will work at take-off, when cruising, and when heading uphill, delivering the power you need to arrive safely.

Jeep Cherokee

Jeep believes that bad weather should never change your plans. If you need to get on the road in the snow, then the Jeep Cherokee may be the perfect match for your active lifestyle. Every Cherokee that has the available four-wheel drive capability has the Jeep Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System.

This system gives you what you need to take on whatever Mother Nature has to throw at you. It pairs with the 4WD to adapt traction performance. The dial features many modes, from Auto to Snow to Sport to Sand/Mud. Flip the dial to Snow when the white stuff starts falling, and let your Cherokee do the talking.

Subaru Outback

Frankly, we could have picked just about any Subaru for this spot. For the sake of narrowing down your choices, we'll choose the Subaru Outback. The Outback comes with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, which optimizes traction and balance.

The whole system lies right along the centerline of the car, which balances weight between the two sides to provide optimal performance and control. Power will be distributed to the wheels with the best traction, maintaining a firm grip on the road, especially in low-traction situations. When the snow starts to fall, the Outback will be there for you.

It's Time to Take On the Snow

A little bit of the white stuff should never alter your Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen plans. All four of these pre-owned models pass the test when it comes to delivering you safely to your Syracuse or Baldwinsville location in the snow.
