4motion of cla 45 and the snow

Since the 4motion of the cla 45 is not like a ''regular'' awd, how it would help/react in the snow? Can we qualify it as a ''winter car'' like the 4motion in the C class for example?

Everyone, does any one of you live in a true northern climate?
Put 4 brand new Blizzaks or any other top line winter tire on your car. Drop out of 18 or 19 inch rims to 17 for the winter, DRIVE SENSIBLY, you cannot accelerate or corner as if it is summer time and the streets are dry and VIOLA! You can drive the CLA 45 in the snow. I am coming from a modified Legacy GT with over 300 HP and no traction control, 2005 MY. No problems what soever, but then again, born and raised to live through Montreal winters, learned to drive for real, RWD cars, only 2 snow tires on rear wheels. I am waiting on my CLA 45 with ZERO concern for winter driving.
the best way to learn is to throw on a set of winters, wait for the first snow fall, and find a big parking lot that hasn't been cleared of snow and go crazy with drifting. It's fun and a great way to learn how your car reacts to better prepare you.

Driving a CLA45 AMG in winter will be LOADS of fun.
