Can you recommend a cheap 4x4 for snow driving?

I want to buy an older 4x4 to drive in the snow. I’m considering the Vauxhall Frontera and the Suzuki Grand Vitara. Which would you buy?

The LWB Grand Vitara from 2006 had both high and low range and a centre diff lock, which makes it better for snow driving.
