Just wondering from those who have had their Venue a while and live in the colder climate areas, how does it handle in the winter?

I've never had a vehicle with "snow mode" before and curious how well it works. Plus general handling in the snow is important for me.

I got mine in the early spring and never got into the snow with him, but on cold mornings know this…
Remote start with defroster and heated seats is the tittie macdiddies! 👍🏼
Snow mode is a limited slip that should help. That combined with fwd and a little ground clearance, should make for easy winter traveling. One of the reasons I got hooked up with this guy to begin with. 🚙

Unfortunately I don't of premium version so no heated seats or remote start for me at the moment.

I've had mine through two winters so far. But both winters were pretty light on snow! So I can't really speak to handling. Don't have snow mode. The heater worked fine.

There is a surprisingly deep trough where the windshield wipers stow when not in use. That is a pain to get snow out of.

Oh yeah I didn't think about the windshield wipers. I'm not usually one of those people who lift there's up off the windshield but I might become one now that you mention that.

Ultimately, swapping to winter tires combined with snow mode would be safest
That’s my plan brother. Keep skinny winter tires on the stock rims and make way for the summer setup next spring. I gotta say the stock Nexen tires are not bad, hope they do well this winter so I can keep running them.👍🏼

Another good thing to do with wipers is to spray some silicone spray on a rag and soak the blades with it. It helps to keep snow and ice from building upon them. And you can treat the windshield itself with RainX or a similar product that helps shed moisture.

I have to keep my car outside in the elements, so I lift the wipers up to keep them from freezing in place. Though I am careful to run the defogger a long time before even attempting to turn the wipers on.

So I have the winter option and is really good for the snow I think because I never had a car before and saw a lot of people stuck trying to get out of the snow, we had heavy snow last winter in NY and I was able to get around very easy but still drive carefully.
