Having a well-equipped vehicle will help you to manage emergencies and situations like going into a skid. The ŠKODA KAROQ, which you can see in the video, has four-wheel drive. Of course, it also has the ESC stabilization system that provides even better control of the vehicle, such as when passing over a slippery surface or negotiating a faster turn.
If the road is extremely icy or insufficiently maintained, then you will certainly want to have snow chains when driving in such conditions. You should learn at home how to attach them – before you need to use them – and then mounting the chains will take you just a few minutes when an urgent situation rises.
Every purchased set of snow chains will include instructions on how to attach them properly, and only chains that are correctly fit in place will do their job properly. Attach them to the drive axle, and in the case of an all-wheel-drive vehicle follow the manufacturer's recommendations and instructions.
