Volkswagen winter driving

It would appear that we’re in for another harsh winter this year, and as we learned last year, a big part of winter driving is being prepared. Since we never know when we could experience a sudden early winter, we thought it’d be a good idea to give you an idea of how handle winter driving in your Volkswagen early so that you can be ready when the time comes.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, New England is once again due for a snowy, unseasonably cold winter. As most drivers know, a lot of care and planning goes into winter driving, which is why we here at Speedcraft Volkswagen want to give you a heads up on ways to prepare for the coming winter months.

For the best driving experience, we recommend you try out one of our models featuring all-wheel-drive. AWD significantly improves your vehicle’s stability and increase your control over the vehicle.

If you’re on the market for a new vehicle, we highly recommend considering one with AWD. Here on our lot, we have a selection of new models, both 2015 and 2016, which feature AWD and are proficient at handling snowy roads. If you’re interested, be sure to check out the Tiguan and Touareg models available in our inventory. You can also feel free to schedule an appointment for a test drive.

While AWD is only available in certain vehicles, that doesn’t mean our other models can’t hold their own on snowy roads.  All of our new Volkswagen models come with Traction Control, which helps drivers keep and gain traction when roads conditions are poor.

Prepare for winter with Speedcraft

A great way to ensure that whatever Volkswagen model you drive will be up to whatever this winter throws at us is to switch to winter tires. Winter tires perform more favorably in winter conditions than traditional all-season tires. If you’re interested in getting your Volkswagen outfitted with winter tires, visit our Tire Store here on our site to learn more.
