You can get buy with the All Season tires, but if you want added safety,piece of mind, and don't drive well in the snow, I'd get snow tires. Can't hurt. You vehicle has ABS braking so when braking, don't pump the brakes like older cars, keep your foot down and the car will stop quickly. You will feel the shutter in your foot from the brake pedal if you do slide, just keep your foot down. I'd suggest taking the vehicle in a empty snowy parking lot and practice to get comfortable with the handling of your new vehicle in the snow. Good Luck!
