We got hit by a little snow and ice over the weekend here in the Southeast. Had a chance to drive my '16 Hybrid Touring around in both snow and VERY slick ice. All I can say is wow. I have had 4x4s most of my life. I have even owned an H1 Hummer and currently own an AWD Landrover. The Crosstrek did just as good in the ice and snow as my LR.
I'm very impressed.
