A snow driving mode would help that, just have the turbo kick in at a higher RPM so it allows the wheels to gradually pick up traction and get moving.They can solve that whole turbo thing with how the tranmsmission lets power get out. gearing is everthing and it goes a long way. one thing we can't forget here.
ECO mode helps somewhat. I had this same problem with early models of Subaru Foresters They just added horsepower and did not change the chassis or transmission on the early XT models.A snow driving mode would help that, just have the turbo kick in at a higher RPM so it allows the wheels to gradually pick up traction and get moving.
Agree if you live in around and above the SNOW belt and do a lot of highway driving then a set of Blizzak tires is highly recommended/ It's a much softer rubber compound for better gripping. Since it's made out of softer compound, tires would wear fasterOEM tires should be generally fine but if you get snowfall every year, best to get a set of snow tires for the extra grip. Not worth it to save a bit of money on a second set if you ever slide into someone or something.
