What also matters is having the engine located over the drive wheels. That means either front engine & FWD, or mid/rear engine & RWD. AWD counts here, too. The older American front engine & RWD cars would frequently get stuck, wheels spinning, because there wasn't enough weight over the drive wheels. I used to own a Fiat X1/9, a tiny 2-seater mid-engine & RWD car. Even with all-season tires, not Blizzaks, I'd get through snow where a lot of SUV drivers were wiped out in the snowbanks.
