I will be moving from hot and sunny Louisiana to South Dakota to attend a graduate program. As most might figure there is very little snow in the south, and when there is everything closes down in a hurry. For this reason learning to drive in the infamous white stuff does not occur very often. My question is what vehicles (that are affordable on a college budget) have good handling in ice and snow? I was looking at a Kia Sorento or Sportage for an SUV and a Toyota or Ford extended cab pickup.
