any car works on snow.  You need to know how to handle it.  You don't even need winter tires.  No accidents ever from me never miss work or anything for snow and I never have had winter tires.  all year for me.  not a lie either. lol  mazda 6  front wheel drive nothing at all special no weight added into it.

+Rainer67059 No, in most of europe where it snows we change tires for winter. Only brits dont do it, because they are weird. I dont know maybe they think its some kind of french conspiracy like normal taps.

Oh no.... A road covered in packed snow.... Whatever shall I do? Hop in my 09 Lancer Ralliart and revel in the turbo powered AWD loveliness as I pass by stuck FWD and RWD vehicles! I shall fear no snow, for I have AWD and turbo.

yeah Americans may have beaten us British but i think everybody is forgetting that we are an absolutely minuscule island in comparison to the US... Anyway the British are better because we have Pink Floyd :P

+ryuman757 LoL Revolutionary war was in a lot of ways like the Viet-nam war in a lot of ways. If my history is correct Britain won most of the battles in much the same way as US won all the battles in South-East Asia. Not that they lost just wasn't worth the fight. Now when US the tried to annexe part of the British Empire a few years later....you got spanked by the red coats. Pink Floyed rocks BTW.

+Michael James The Vietnam war definitely was a lot like the Revolutionary war, though I don't know if we were bullying the country before-hand. I think we just jumped in and tried fixing the country with our "FREEDOMS!" But yeah, I think we won pretty much every major battle, but lost the war. Pink Floyd is indeed a god-tier band :)

Since when was driving a 2WD FWD car an issue in snow? I'm been doing it since I first had my license...
Report spam or abuse
It's more about highway instability, I live really far from my home because of school and my mom's FWD car actually had exactly that heart stopping moment Clarkson talks about in the video. It's actually scary, and it's just because of how FWD works (all the power in the front without traction, and the back wheels just dragging uselessly). Luckily mine is a 4wd. Actually the saloon version of this car xD
Report spam or abuse
people in this country don't get snow, if we get threats of even a small flurry people assume the world is going to end and they empty shop shelves. Plus people don't know how to drive, if I'm coming up a hill with parked cars, people will still come down, so I lose momentum and can't keep going...

It's episodes like this that give Top Gear a bad name. I mean honestly, it's just a Jaguar with four wheel drive. He brags about it like it's so much more amazing than any other car, but it really is just an estate with 4wd. He even compares driving it to a bmw 3 series with rear wheel drive and says that this is better than that. Of course it is, it's 4wd, not rear wheel drive. I can understand why liking British cars is so abundant in this tv show, it's top gear UK, but it needs to stop.
