This was the perfect little snowmobile for the Greatest Storm of the Century (that wasn't really). I hoped for Quattro when I went to the parking garage, but front-wheel drive proved to be just fine. I blazed a trail in the post-apocalyptic early morning with barely a squiggle. There were several uphill runs that proved to be no problem. The torque of the turbo-diesel added to the snow-going prowess, and on the evening's much clearer commute home, I had a better chance to enjoy the sportiness of the powertrain.
And did I mention how grateful I was for the thoughtful addition of the cold-weather package? Add a heated steering wheel, and I could take this weather all winter.
