The Honda Crosstour is on MSN’s list of best cars in bad weather. Specifically, Honda likes the EX-L 4WD option powered by a V6 engine. MSN was looking for cars that handle well in snow — trucks and vans were not eligible to qualify for this list.
EX-L was considered because it is the only Crosstour model that offers Honda’s Real Time 4WD. Honda’s Real Time 4WD engages when the system detects you slipping. It transfers power to where you get tire grip. The hydraulically actuated system operates only when front wheel slippage occurs, helping you through terrain that can be tricky to maneuver.
