MK7 Volkswagen Golf GTI In the Snow and 1 Year Ownership Report Cars and Comments

We have owned the GTI Sport for a little over a year and when a winter storm hit, Drew had to take it out to put it through its paces and do a few handbrake turns. Follow us in Instagram for behind the scenes content.

Why NOT to Buy "All Seasons" // SNOW TEST

Today on JD Cars we are proving the fact that snow tires are absolutely crucial in winter driving conditions. This comparison was mainly a braking test, but braking and handling are by far the most important factors in snow. Acceleration was very similar in the two cars, but the difference in braking was night and day. More winter tire videos are to come with more snow! Thanks for watching! Please like and subscribe!

Winter tires VS All Season Tires. Proof that you need WINTER TIRES!!

Motormouth Canada had a chance to travel to Whitehorse in the Yukon to test two identical cars, one with winter tires and one without. Even with a vehicle equipped with AWD, the video proves that driving with winter tires makes a massive difference. Proof that you should invest in winter tires. Here are the results. Thanks to Subaru for the use of the Crosstrek utility vehicles.

Snow driving overtakes in a VW Golf R Mk7 - who needs Audi Quattro?

Best two overtakes at the end. My VW Golf R Mk7 (7.5 facelift) wearing Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 (PA4) tyres /tires all round going out for a drive after a fresh downfall of snow overnight. Video shows dash-cam footage of multiple overtakes of cars struggling to make progress, particularly on uphill sections.
