    I find the Rogue does fairly well, but you must drive according to the conditions. The real determining factor in slippery conditions is the tires, not the vehicle.

    The stock tires do well in the dry and wet but are no match for snow tires when the white stuff starts to fly. That being said, I find the Rogue has amazing stability and traction, I've always been extremely pleased with these aspects of the vehicle.

    They make the biggest difference. A good set of winter tires will allow you to zip past everyone in complete control. If you don't feel safe with the stock tires, invest in a good set of studless winter tires.

ABS isn't suppose to help slow you down but, Help you steer when you lock up.
