I was openly conflicted in my last dispatch on our long-term 2022 BMW 330e xDrive regarding its pros and cons, but there’s no doubt in my mind that it’s a champion in the snow.
Much of that credit goes to the Nokian snow tires that grip the road like galoshes, but fortified with all-wheel drive, our 3 Series is a well-sorted snowmobile. I confidently drove through slick conditions on Christmas Eve as darkness fell and the well-documented storm that snarled holiday travel for most of the country picked up. Bomb Cyclone? Not a problem for this Bimmer.
I had to try to put a wheel wrong, usually engaging in purposeful understeer on snow-covered side streets. But when the chips were down and I was dialed in with the family onboard, this 3 Series delivered, tackling those sort-of-plowed but still messy and maybe/probably icy surface streets where the speed limit is 45 mph and some people do 55 and some do 30. Our 330e never lost its composure.
