Can you recommend a small 4WD for driving in snow?

My daughter needs a car that will cope with an untreated hill in snow but is small enough to be easily parked. Is there a smallish, reliable four-wheel drive car?

The Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.4 D-4D AWD. Also coming in 2013 is the FIAT Panda 4x4.

Chunky and quirky looks. A rare sight on UK roads. 1.4 D-4D AWD surprisingly enjoyable to drive.
Space, practicality and off-road fun in an engaging, affordable package.
