What small cars come with all-wheel drive?

Besides the Subaru line, what smaller cars come with all-wheel drive? Any Fords or others that are not bigger, SUV-style vehicles?

Sue, Kalamazoo, Mich.

Steer your mouse over to the Cars.com Vehicle Recommender, where you’ll find dozens of 2010 and 2011 cars available with all-wheel drive. We weren’t sure what constitutes “smaller cars” by your yardstick, so we limited the field to models that get at least 26 mpg on the highway and carry a base price under $40,000.


Among the possibilities are the Audi A3 and A4, Buick LaCrosse, Lexus IS 250, Suzuki SX4 and Kizashi and the Toyota Matrix. The Vehicle Recommender lets you fine-tune your search by selecting a price range, mileage, body style, drive system, convenience features, safety features and more. We encourage you to explore these capabilities because they could open your eyes to vehicles you hadn’t considered.
