4matic vs Subaru?
I've been a dedicated Subaru owner for a number of years, but now thinking I want something with more room, maybe an E350 wagon.
The thing that has kept me from looking seriously at other cars is that the snow performance of a Subaru is just astounding. For 20 years now, I've been passing all kinds of cars in horrible weather in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Colorado, and New York. My work does not allow me to take a snow day, so I want to have similar confidence in whatever I move into next, or maybe I'll just have to get another Outback and deal with the cramped conditions.
Has anyone here made this Subaru-4Matic switch themselves? Would you take a 4Matic-equipped car out in ANY snowstorm with no qualms at all, as I do now with my Subaru?
PS, I do understand that a Mercedes is superior to a Subaru in pretty much every other parameter...this question is only about performance in snow.
