Seven Cheapest AWD Vehicles

By on December 2, 2014

#2 Nissan JUKE

Starting at around $22,000 for the AWD models, with an impressive fuel economy of 28 city/ 32 highway, the Nissan Juke is no joke when it comes to durability and rugged protection.

The JUKE’s AWD torque vectoring protection is designed to maintain control even in the most challenging situations.

In addition to moving power between the front and rear wheels, the multi-sensor system automatically transfers rear wheel power to the left or right, depending on where it is needed most. This means that any change in direction is performed smoothly.

Coupled with the car’s rear multi-link suspension, which manages to deliver responsiveness with minimized roughness, the JUKE’s AWD offers superior protection against rugged terrain.

Power, Cost, Efficiency:

  • MSRP: From $20,250
  • MPG: 28 city/ 32 highway
  • Horsepower: 188 HP
  • Engine: 1.6 L

#1 Subaru Impreza

Power, Cost, Efficiency:

  • MSRP: From $18,195
  • MPG: 28 city/ 37 highway
  • Horsepower: 148 HP
  • Engine: 2.0 L

It’s probably no surprise that a Subaru tops our list of best AWD vehicles. However, it may be a surprise that the Subaru Impreza is by far the most affordable on the list.

Starting at only $18,000 with all-wheel drive standard, this little sedan (or hatchback) is far and above the best vehicle for your money.

Protected by Subaru’s innovative AWD system, touting an impressive 27 city, 36 highway fuel economy and priced at less than $20,000 — this car seems too good to be true.

The car’s fuel economy is thanks to a particularly efficient engine and the car’s relatively small size.

The AWD protection paired with available heated seats, heated side mirrors and a windshield de-icer makes the Impreza a truly all-weather vehicle.

If it seems like everyone in your town is driving an Impreza, they are. And now you know why!
