New family car
Being snowed in for the third time, I am looking at the possibility of an alternative to my Audi A3, to get me back on the road, but don't care for the huge Jeep/Land Rover type 4x4's, which are far too big and ostentatious for my requirements.

Does anyone make a saloon car/hatchback 4x4?

Suzuki SX4 4WD 1.6 petrol or 1.9 diesel. But winter tyres are actually more effective than 4WD in snow.
