I need AWD because of my driveway (I live in the country) and in the few serious snowfall we had in the last weeks, I couldn't turn on the traction control. I guess the AWD is so good it transfers power to the 4 wheel before slippage occurs.
I also have Go2+ on my Venza AWD an my previous car and they perform very vell in snow (on AWD trucks at least).
When I purchased the Sportage, I asked for one of the follownig tire: Toyo, Yokohama, Nokian or Gislaved. Although I never used the last 2 brand, I received recommendation from expert in the field. You can't go wrong with those).
