How will it do in snow?

I am coming from a Subaru Forester so I am used to a pretty strong performing AWD.

I know the car is very new so there isnt a real track record of winter performance, but does anyone have insight into the AWD system (has it been used in other Jag models?) and any thoughts on what kind of poor weather and winter performance we should expect?

Thanks.

Reportedly similar to the F-Type which might be a good or bad thing depending on who you ask. Some people wanted something pulled from an LR, others wanted the sportiness of the F-Type. Although its RWD biased, apparently it takes some effort to throw the rear end around, so no need to worry about that part.

So just to get the obvious key element out of the way....... I don't think you can get winter tyres for the 22" wheels nor chains. So, since it's the rubber boots that make the most difference in the snow, either specify 20" maximum rims or ensure you secure a set of winter rims in addition to your 22" car.

As for the AWD system, I am convinced it will be fine. It's very sophisticated, has the ADSR function for low speed grip in adverse conditions and plenty of ground clearance to prevent the snow plough effect in deep snow.

I just love it when the deep snow arrives, the car is wearing new winter tyres (they lose their magic at 4mm depth) and with AWD it's almost invincible. That's when everyone drools over your AWD SUV and the stampede begins to buy 4x4 and winter tyres. If you could time a private sale in such circumstances then your residuals would go through the roof!

These look like they'll be strong performers in snow with the 22's: Continental*ExtremeContact DWS 06

I trying to decide whether to get a set of 20" wheels with snows, or just put these on my 22's.

That's what I'm getting. Pure winter tires are an overreaction for the lower 48.

Does "lower 48" mean south of Canadian border or below certain elevation ? And then there is HI.
I am not sure what difference there is between Alaska and many other places in US which receive tons of snow in the winter.

I know plenty of states where it should be illegal to run anything BUT true winter tires in the winter. All seasons compromise on both fronts. If you like compromising on the only 4x4 inch squares keeping your car on the road, by all means, carry on.

If those are 22s they aren't winters. They're all-seasons.

15 years in Minnesota with all-seasons on every vehicle in my garage, and a sloped driveway, too. Never a problem. I'm just sayin.' Now in PA, NJ, NY area. A piece of cake compared to Minny. Heck, I could drive safely with summers on my F-Pace in these states. Been here 11 years now. All seasons on every one of my cars. Never a problem and I'm always in the fast lane. But I'll (reluctantly) dig deep for the dollars to put all-seasons on my F-Pace because my wife prefers them.
