Nothing beats all-wheel drive (AWD) for providing extra grip in poor weather and on slippery driving surfaces, and enthusiasts know that sending power to all four wheels also improves handling even when on the smoothest roadways. So it’s nice to know that drivers are no longer limited to just SUVs—or crossovers—if they want to take advantage of those benefits. Which brings us to Autobytel’s recommended list of best AWD sedans for 2012.
They come in a variety of sizes—if not shapes—and can deliver dynamic performance, surprisingly high fuel-economy numbers and a noted focus on safety. Perhaps just as important for shoppers is the fact that this particular list of the top AWD sedans of 2012 also showcases a variety of price points to provide all-wheel drive for all.
