Nissan reveals how motorists drive in winter
Many motorists do not feel ready for winter while driving their cars. This is what emerged from a survey conducted by Nissan, which reveals how European drivers prepare to drive during the cold season. The research included 6,000 motorists in Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom, 36% of whom said they were not prepared to drive in difficult weather conditions and shortened days, while 27% said they did not know or did not use safety technologies for your car. In the coming months, drivers will find themselves spending more time behind the wheel in the dark hours, which will make navigating at the beginning and end of the day even more difficult. For more than half of European motorists, this is a cause for concern, to the extent that 55% admit that they are uncomfortable behind the wheel in winter, 45% would like to receive proper preparation for driving in adverse weather conditions and 55% have canceled or delayed a trip due to poor weather conditions.

The driver can choose between Snow, Off-Road, Sport, Eco and Standard driving modes, depending on road conditions or his driving style.
