The number of cars available with all-wheel drive has grown by about 10 for 2012, increasing the number to more than 65. Only 10 start below $30,000, however, and more than half cost more than $40,000, so all-wheel traction usually doesn’t come cheap.


Cars — not trucks, SUVs or crossovers — with all-wheel drive range from the $16,999 Suzuki SX4 hatchback to the $376,000 Lamborghini Aventador supercar. We have updated our list of all-wheel-drive cars for 2012 and suggest you use the Vehicle Recommender to generate your own list using your own price range, fuel economy requirements and other criteria. From there, you will have links to each car’s vehicle page, where you can find prices, photos, colors and ownership costs.
