Best Front Wheel Drive Cars
The vast majority of the passenger cars available in the United States feature a front-wheel drive layout. Front-wheel drive is the drivetrain design of choice for a variety of reasons: it helps with packaging (no driveshaft means greater interior room), it allows for shorter hoods (due to transversely mounted engines), and it provides greater efficiencies due to reduced parasitic drag. Most buyers don’t really put too much stock into which wheels drive a car as long as the vehicle in question offers great fuel economy, plenty of interior room, and a comfortable driving experience. That being said, to illustrate just how prevalent front-wheel drive has become in the industry, we've put together a look at the best front-wheel drive cars currently available. These ten models aren't a comprehensive list of front-wheel drive front-runners, but they represent some of the most appealing vehicles in their respective classes.
