Overall - The Michelin CrossClimate 2 is a worthy upgrade on the original CrossClimate+. It improves the outgoing tires grip in nearly all conditions, it makes a significant step forward in the snow, and has significantly lower rolling resistance.
All in all, the CrossClimate 2 is a very impressive all season tire.

Overall, pleased with the tire as I wanted a comfortable tire with long tread life and a true "All-Season" tire for the winter months as I have not yet purchased a set of dedicated summer wheels/tires yet. Coming from previous Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ which lasted around 52k of 45k mile rating with sometimes spirited driving, so have no reason to doubt Michelin's tread ware claims, at least on my vehicle. Handling in the dry, the AS3+ was better when taking curves/turns and activated the VDC/TCS less often, handling in the wet appears to be similar. Snow and ice grip, of course, are markedly better on the CrossClimate2 with all aspects of handling/acceleration/braking, whereas the AS3+ would be somewhat haphazard of anything over 1" of snow.
While the tire itself is comfortable and not noisy (similar amount of perceivable noise as the AS3+), the thick tread pattern/blocks pick up large stones/pebbles like no other, which may result in annoying clinking until manually inspected and removed.
I've had this on the Kia Sorento for around 6 months, and driven a winter in Salt Lake City which see's a lot of snow. These tires are exceptional, quiet and comfortable in the dry, good grip in the wet, and way way better than any us all season tire. Couldn't get stuck even in deep snow. Highly recommended.
Only swapping them off for the summer as I want a set of ATs on for moab driving and don't want to risk a sidewall popping, otherwise I'd keep this on all year.

Live at the beginning of a snow belt in Canada and has always swapped tires between seasons. These are truly ALL-WEATHER tires with the design pattern reminds me of the excellent Michelin HydroEdge All Season tires I purchased in 2007 and drove for 7 years on my current 2004 Sienna before it was discontinued (too good!?).
On my 2019 KIA Niro (Michelin currently does not produce the size for my van), I replaced the factory Michelin Energy Saver A/S in March 2021 just enough time to catch the last snow fall and to avoid future twice a year tire swapping hassles and unnecessary cost of time and money (Directional tires do require frequent from & back rotation for even ware but I can do that myself) . These tires makes this compact Cross Over hatchback hybrid (I am man enough to call it a small wagon! LOL) feels like driving on my old 98 Accord EX V6 luxury sedan (back than) with MXV 4 tires even in snowy condition. Very grounded/sure footed feel even when turning sharp turns/corners at higher speed in warm/cold/dry/raining/snowing/icy conditions. These tires absorbs a lot of bumps and noise and no longer feel wobbly when cornering. The fuel economy has also increased a bit from average 24km/L on both Energy Saver A/S & X-Ice XI3 to average of 25km/L while I always apply 4psi above the factory recommended pressure level based on 20C ambient temperature. These tires are rated #1 in Consumer Report performance All-Season tires and there a YouTube video on the CrossClimate+ (older model) driving 1,054km in heavy snow through Canadian BC mountains with ease in 2 days. With factory warranty of 100,000km rating I think I will be fine until the next version of CrossClimate becomes available.
