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

2011-2012 New Cars: The Ultimate Guide Part 1

Ford
It's somewhat of a mystery why we don't hear more about Ford's all-wheel-drive sedan offerings, given that the Fusion, with the option to drive all four wheels, is rather unique in the mid-size sedan segment. AWD is offered on the Fusion, along with the Taurus full-size sedan, starting on the SEL trim level. Ford's 365-horsepower Taurus SHO, however, comes standard with AWD.

Fusion
Base price: $28,990
AWD cost: $1850
City/hwy mpg: 18/26
AWD penalty: 2 mpg city and hwy

Taurus
Base price: $30,045
AWD cost: $1850
City/hwy mpg: 17/25
AWD penalty: 1 mpg city/3 mpg hwy

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.
