New cars to warm your soul in winter
Typically, a roundup of the "best winter cars" focuses on all-wheel-drive, heated mirrors and seats, engine block heaters and so forth. Of course, these are features catering to physical needs. However, for many, their car represents an emotional investment. It's the sizzle as much as the steak.
Yes, "getting there" is key, but making a statement as you do it is every bit as important. With that in mind, here is a list of five of the best cars to give your spirit a boost this winter.
Rather than concentrating on traditional "winter features," this list includes cars with the power to lift your morale and brighten your disposition year-round. Four are all-new models and one has been totally redesigned for 2011. Each earned its place on this list because it has the power to make your morning slog less tedious and more fun to drive, snow or shine.
