18-inch wheels perfectly hold the road grip and all-wheel drive allows you to feel confident behind the wheel in any weather, whether it is rain or snow. It has rather brutal appearance, because high cross car should look firmly, and should inspire confidence at first sight. This is your friend in a difficult situation, which will never leave you to your own devices.
