We all remember driving through the unprecedented treacherous conditions during the last winter and with forecasters predicting an early start to the season and snow due to arrive as soon as October, it may be time to prepare by investing in a suitable car!

The UK experienced up to 30 inches of snow and temperatures plummeted to -19C last year, making the roads susceptible to ice. Luckily, the UK’s leading car supermarket, Motorpoint, has a wide range of cars available that are well-suited to blizzard like conditions!

Being stuck in adverse weather is ‘snow joke’, but the trusty 4×4 Chevrolet Captiva, with its seven seats, should help to keep your whole family mobile even with the predicted upcoming frost and snowfall! Motorpoint has the Chevrolet Captiva 2.0 Vcdi Ltz 5dr Auto seven seat priced at just £16,999 offering a customer saving of £12,901*. Coming with a ’60 plate and metallic paint worth £340, these Chevy’s have relatively low mileages starting from 14,151.

The Captiva allows families to travel in comfort and has all the practicality a modern family needs, with bags of space. It also enjoys comparatively low running costs, making it an ideal all year round car, great for summer touring as well as winter!

Motorpoint also has other versions of the Captiva on offer as part of its impressive stock list.

Other 4x4s available from Motorpoint include the Mitsubishi Shogun Sw 3.2 Di-Dc (197) Elegance 5dr Auto which has rave reviews for its capabilities in snow. Priced at just £24,999, offering a customer saving of £12,426* and low mileages from 14,574, these ’60 plate 4x4s also include Pearlescent paint worth £426.

For those who like to combine style and capable driveability, the Ford Kuga is an obvious choice. With the Kuga’s intelligent ‘all-wheel drive’ system which is ideal no matter what the surface is or what driving conditions you are faced with. A popular choice amongst Motorpoint customers, the car supermarket has a variety of trims on offer including the ’11 plate 2.0 TdCi 140 Zetec 5dr, which in the lighter two wheel drive option, is priced at £18,599, offering a saving of £3,247*.  This version has a low mileage of just 2,823 and comes with metallic paint worth £421.

David Shelton, Managing Director, Motorpoint said: “I’m no Michael Fish but if what the forecasters have predicted is true then we look set for another big freeze over the next few months! With this in mind, if you’re planning on buying your next vehicle then you might want to consider a car that’s well suited to hazardous winter conditions like a 4×4.

“Motorpoint has plenty in stock, as well as over 3,000 other vehicles to choose from with all offering great savings – which is handy at this time of year, as I can definitely accurately predict Christmas is almost upon us!”
