Best Nissans for Winter Driving

Winter in Massachusetts can be brutal and the frigid temperatures combined with the seemingly endless snowstorms can make for a dangerous commute. Be prepared this winter with a reliable Nissan that will keep you safe when the roads of Brockton, Randolph and Stoughton get covered in snow and ice.

Nissan vehicles are trust worthy so you can protect yourself and your passengers when you’re traveling in the snow. Explore the best Nissans for winter driving to learn all you need to know about these top-notch vehicles.

Nissan Pathfinder 

The Nissan Pathfinder has evolved over the years from a truck-like structure to an SUV that resembles a minivan, with curves rather than edges. However, some believe that the Pathfinder is the best of both worlds; with the handling of a truck and the comfort and space of a minivan. This vehicle excels in ice, slush, and even deep snow that accumulate during winter in Brockton, Randolph and Stoughton.

The Pathfinder comes standard with front-wheel drive and All-Wheel drive is optional. The All-Wheel drive system can be switched between front-wheel drive, automatic four-wheel drive that sends power to the rear wheels if front wheels slip, and the 4×4 lock where the torque is split and distributed evenly between the front and rear wheels. This system will allow you to adjust the power to the specific conditions that you’re driving through. The best-in-class fuel economy yields 20 mph city and 26 mph highway for front-wheel drive and 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway for all-wheel drive.

Inside the Pathfinder, the comfortable cabin is climate controlled and quiet, and the three rows of seats are spacious, providing adequate leg and headroom for your passengers. They also slide well for easy access to the backseats.

This rugged vehicle is equipped to safely transport you and your family through the winter weather conditions, while also keeping you comfortable during the ride. 

Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover, so you can be safe in wintery conditions in Brockton, Randolph and Stoughton without relying on a large truck or SUV. Available with all-wheel drive, it will take you safely from point A to point B when the roads are slushy and slick. The Rogue performs at its best in the challenging conditions, accelerating powerfully when necessary and handling well.

The All-Wheel Drive system gives power to the front wheels at all times, and the rear wheels kick in when needed. Maximum traction can also be engaged for navigating through the ice and snow under 25 mph. At 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, the fuel economy ratings are impressive for an AWD compact crossover.

Inside, the cabin of the Rogue is quiet and comfortable. And it’s spacious; the Rogue is one of the only compact crossovers with a third row for passengers. There’s also plenty of cargo space for transporting luggage and gear.

If you’re looking for a vehicle to get you through the harsh winters in Brockton, Randolph and Stoughton, the Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Rogue can get you and your family safely around town.
