While serious winter weather is typically not something we see much of here in Montgomery, the colder months of the year do occasionally toss a few extra challenges our way. Luckily, you can be prepared for just about anything that the weather decides to do when you drive a Subaru model with all-wheel drive. Almost all Subaru models come standard with AWD, so extra stability and control are yours to command from just about any new vehicle in our inventory.

Why is AWD Important in Winter?

We may not see much snow during winter, but snowfall in the Birmingham area certainly isn't impossible. We also tend to experience more rainfall around this time of year, so driving a Subaru with AWD helps drivers to gain the traction needed to get moving and stay on track.

How does AWD help when the weather gets rough?

Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system powers all four wheels to help you gain traction when slippery roads seem determined to make driving more difficult for you. Here's a brief breakdown of what Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive does:

  • Powers all four wheels at the same time, helping you gain optimal traction
  • Sends power to the wheels with the best traction when the roads are slippery
  • Allows for improved efficiency and stability as well as a sharper response to slick roads
  • Works with Subaru safety systems such as Electronic Brake-force Distribution to help you maintain control and confidence even when the weather turns ugly
