The car is much better on snow if I put it into manual mode and gear up a gear or two over where it wants to be in automatic mode. It can still slip a bit, but it was seemingly much worse when left in drive as it holds onto lower gears and tends to engage the traction control much more readily.

It can still slip around a bit, but not enough to be too concerning by comparison to full auto.
