Typically up here in the Canadian prairie winter-land most enthusiasts park their cars for the winter and buy a ‘beater’ to get through the cold arctic months. If you don’t fall into the enthusiast category you are probably the type of person that buys a vehicle that works best for you for year round use. A very popular choice up here is the compact SUV segment of the market. The Honda CRV being a very common and popular example.
Non-typically you get the enthusiast that buys a set of winter tires for their summer performance/sports car and drive it year round. Here in Regina there are a couple of Porsche 911 Turbo owners that do this and the fine gentleman that owns the car below. All-wheel drive is good in the snow after all, isn’t it?
