If you live in or around Maine, you're accustomed to snow from November through February. The streets turn icy, making commuting dicier and longer. You need a car that can comfortably endure all road conditions during this period. Most of our Portland, Waterville, and beyond drivers know that the Honda brand makes reliable cars, but which is the best model for tackling Maine's snowy conditions?

Well, if you want extra stability and traction to get you moving around Maine during the winter period, here are the Honda cars you need to buy.

  • Honda CR-V – It's recommended to opt for the Honda CR-V EX or the Special Edition over the base model if you want good returns for your investment. The two models come with convenient standard features like remote engine start, heated front seats, a rear-window defroster, LED fog lights, driver-assistive tech, and the Honda sensing safety package to make your snowy trips a breeze. When driving in winter conditions, the Honda CR-V's drive train flaunts a highly-capable real-time AWD that offers responsive performance in all types of road conditions. Thanks to the all-season tires and hill start assist, you will have an easy time maneuvering snowy roads around Camden, Auburn, and beyond.
  • Honda Pilot - The Honda Pilot is one of the most-capable SUVs for driving in snowy conditions. It boasts a sufficient ride height that lets it move through snowfall without its tires getting stuck. With its innovative AWD system, the Honda Pilot quickly drives through extreme snowdrifts. The good thing about this AWD system is that it continuously monitors the car and notices when some wheels lose traction. Then, it increases torque supply to the wheels with little traction, and in the process, avoids loss of control. In addition, its spunky engine improves its performance in heavy snow showers.
