All-Wheel-Drive Traction for Cheap

Buyers are demanding all-wheel-drive more than ever, thanks to the added traction and security it can provide in a variety of weather conditions. The result is a wide range of vehicles to choose from that are equipped with all-wheel drive and priced for just about any budget.

On the following slides, you’ll find ten all-wheel-drive sedans and SUVs, all with starting prices under $25,000. One, the Subaru Impreza, starts at less than $20,000. The best news is that many of these vehicles aren’t just affordable, some are among the top-ranked models in their categories. 

We’ve arranged the slides from most to least expensive, and included our overall score with each one for reference. All prices are for the least expensive trim available with all-wheel drive, and equipped with an automatic transmission. 

Keep in mind that the rankings on each slide may not match those in our full reviews. That’s because our rankings are constantly changing, as new models are introduced and new data becomes available.
