The best luxury cars for the winter

25 Oct

While driving in summer evokes images of cruising along with the roof down and the wind in your hair, driving in winter brings to mind the battling of the elements, with sleet and rain battering the vehicle and icy roads making conditions particularly hazardous.

However, this doesn’t have to be the case, especially for road usersĀ checking out the best new car deals. This is because there are plenty of vehicles that are specially designed for the colder months. These cars will not only make sure that you’re safe, warm and dry when the temperature drops, but also that you’re driving in total comfort and absolute luxury.Vehicles such as these place particular emphasis on practicality – and you’ll find that their size and shape offer much by way of functionality and space, without compromising on that all-important aspect, style.

Luckily for those in the market for a luxury car that is geared towards the winter months, there are lots of great designs for them to choose from. Below are some of the best.

Not only is the vehicle a brilliant performer in all weather conditions – you needn’t worry about getting snowed in with this motor – it is also very easy on the eye.
