Winter Car Buyer’s Guide: AWD Without an SUV or Truck

Dodge is in the midst of Chrysler Group and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne's product march, having just unveiled the new-for-2011 Charger. It sports new sheetmetal, an upgraded interior, and, what we care most about here, revised powertrains. Dodge ditched both V-6s previously offered in favor of the new 3.6-liter, Pentastar V-6. However, along with the old V-6s went the all-wheel-drive option on the V-6. Dodge now only offers AWD on the Hemi-powered R/T model.

Charger R/T
Base price: $30,995
AWD cost: $2150
City/hwy mpg: N/A
AWD penalty: N/

And, what about the Nissan Juke? I drove the AWD version. Neat little car, albeit a little quirky looking.

Suzuki specifically calls the SX4 a crossover when it has awd. But we think it's a cool little vehicle.
What about the suzuki sx4?
