Although we added 4 Goodyear Ultra Grip snow tires in October (NO studs), we only recently have gotten REAL winter weather here in Upstate NY (30 miles South of the Canadian border). Saturday 12/23/2017 was freezing rain, which turned to snow, which resulted in ice, snow, and slush on our roads. This car handles beyond EXCEPTIONAL!! On previous owned cars, WITH 4 snow tires (no studs) there was slight skidding now and then, to be expected in these extreme driving conditions........and occasional activation of the ABS/anti lock brakes, when braking to a stop. So far, this Niro has not skidded once, nor has the ABS kicked in. This car thus far, with it's 4 snow tires, is the best car I have ever driven in winter weather hands down! Several months left to test it out but so far it's been GREAT!
