I've had my 2015 4-cylinder SLT Terrain not quite a month now. It's my first AWD vehicle. I've lived in the snow belt south of Buffalo NY for over 20 years. My 1995 Saturn was horrible in the snow; it's replacement, a 2005 Honda Odyssey was significantly better, but after the cold snowy winter we just went through I decided on AWD. I got the SLT model because I wanted the heated drivers seat and the heated outside mirrors. The up to date tech features were also on my must-have list. I am getting between 26 and 28 mpg. I do mainly highway driving but am frequently stuck in traffic jams.
