Winter can get rough in the Rockville area, but driving a Subaru SUV can give you the edge you need to conquer winter weather. Subaru SUVs make excellent companions year-round, but they're exceptionally capable in winter. So, if you're looking for a vehicle that will help take some of the challenge out of your daily drive during winter, we can walk you through some of the most helpful Subaru SUV features that contribute to a safer, more confident drive.

Here's an overview of some of the top features that Subaru SUVs share:

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

All new Subaru SUVs, such as the Subaru Ascent, come standard with a sophisticated AWD system that helps to enhance stability and traction, even on slippery Washington, DC roads. When paired with winter tires, this all-wheel drive system can give you a real advantage when road conditions make it difficult to gain traction.

Ample Ground Clearance

You may not think of it as a safety feature, but you'll be thankful for the 8.7 inches of ground clearance that come with Subaru SUVs like the Subaru Outback when you need to power your way over heavy snowfall. Even the Subaru Crosstrek, the smallest SUV in the lineup, offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance.

Steering-Responsive Headlights

Most Subaru SUVs, such as the Subaru Forester, offer steering-responsive headlights. These can greatly improve visibility by turning your headlights when you make a turn, which helps you see and helps others see you as you drive around Silver Spring.
