Fuel economy, Subaru’s AWD, and the cheapest price tag on the list. Plus, the hatchback provides a little extra cargo.
Ranked #1 by a number of sources, the extra clearance, Audi engineering and wagon body means more friends and more fun.

A staple on the slopes, head up to your local hill and you’ll see a ton of Outbacks for good reason. This puppy’s got 8.7″ of ground clearance, standard roof rails, standard AWD, and a sweet price tag for those features ($23,320).
Volvo XC70 AWD
Brought to you by Sweden, the country that lives half the year in winter. The XC70 can be equipped with heated mirrors, heated seats, heated wipers, heated steering wheel, and a heated windshield. Volvo brings a lot of heat.
BMW X5 w/ x-drive
BMW’s mid-sized crossover: German engineering, AWD added to BMW’s already excellent handling, and Roof Rails for ski’s!
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Rugged off-road capability (3 4WD systems to choose from, 11.3″ of clearance) meets interior comforts you didn’t expect in a Jeep (refined interior, power lift gate, heated steering wheel).
Acura MDX AWD
Great balance of performance (290HP), comfort (3 zone climate control, heated/vented seats), and convenience (16.2″ split screen entertainment) so everyone has a good time on those long road trips.
The Chevy Tahoe makes the list because of its 5.3L V8 Engine, 4WD, and 8,500lbs towing capacity. No other vehicle on this list allows you to bring a party (ski mobiles/camper) and the people (8 person capacity).
Toyota Sienna AWD
It’s the only minivan available with AWD so it’s the best way to get the entire junior ski team up to the mountain.
Ski resorts use it to clear acres of snow. You can use it to escape the apocalypse!
Last but not least, if you’re looking for a car that ice skates, check out the Bentley GT Continental:
