UK Compass in the Easter snow
We had between 3 and 5 inches of snow overnight, I managed to find plenty of snow on the Yorkshire Wolds while out taking photographs.
The UK version of the Compass has awful "Summer grade" Continental tyres, that look completely unsuited to giving much grip on anything but dry tarmac. The Compass was totally sure-footed and didn't slip, slide or spin even though there was ice under much of the snow. I didn't select the permanent 4 wheel drive, just letting the automatic switching send drive to the rear wheels if necessary. I only once detected it's kicking in (literally, you feel a slight jolt as the rear wheels give drive) and that was when setting off on a slight incline at a junction.
I don't have the same faith in the Compass as I did in my old Cherokee with mud terrain tyres, but equally it will get you from A to B and back again in the snow.
