Is it too early to say our Outlander will live up to those impressive economy figures? Definitely maybe, some might say.If you frequently drive in winter, then consider buying a set of winter tyres. They offer exceptional grip when the temperature drops below seven degrees, and while they're effective in snow and ice, they also perform better than summer tyres when it's wet.
