I agree- couple weeks ago we got literally 20 inches of snow and my AWD TB handled the unplowed driveways amazingly! Lots of strength! BUT, I received a "service side indicator alert" message for no apparent reason- my blind spot indicator lights work fine.
Tires are absolutely the biggest factor (I think), after that the snow type (powdery vs heavy/wet) make a difference. Ice? Not much really helps unless you've got studs (when are almost unheard of anymore) or chains... But AWD should really help on these. So far I've been happy in MI.
After one of the biggest snow storms on record in Denver (at least recorded at the airport,) this thing pushed through 12-15 inches of snow on the road with relative ease. My first AWD. Had a lot of fun in it!
With those types of snowfall, not many vehicles do very well. We received part of that storm Monday. Where I live, it was just under 6 inches. I like winter, for winter activities, but it is now time to move along, so I can clean up the TB. Thankfully most of winter has been pretty easy here.
