You state you already have winter tires. It may well be that the ground surface was frozen or almost frozen and no winter tire will help on ice. But yes, the car's spin-control system seems to me that is not working. Another point of reference was the 09 Forester. This one is a manual but felt safer than the aforementioned Impreza, in the same conditions as last night - drove them back to back, different reasons. Nevertheless, the newer cars don't inspire that much confidence. Honestly I can only think of the LSD as the difference.
