I am on Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2's and my MKC is a Beast in snow, better than my old 4x4 SUV with snow tires. Been all over the mountains of NH, VT and Quebec this winter and no problems what so ever in snow. Something I have noticed unless you are going up hills, it is mostly in front wheel drive. You can pull up what the AWD system is doing if you have the option in it, I found it rather interesting while driving in various weather and road conditions.
