All Wheel Drive Cars Are BetterBy: Carter RankinHas this ever happened to you?
http://askmissa.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/shoveling-car-out.jpgAll-Wheel Drive CarsAccording to cdxetextbook.com AWD cars:Continuously power all four wheelsThis helps receive maximum traction in all conditions.Are very useful on roads with slippery surfaces in and when driving in moderate off-road terrain.There is no requirement for the driver to manually shift the transmission into AWD mode.AWD cars are lighter and more compact than most 4WD carAre becoming more common

Front Wheel Drive CarsAccording to mechanicalmania.com FWD cars:Thecenter of gravityof the vehicle is typically farther forward.This could result in understeer.Because of the driveshaft in a FWD car the turning radius could be bigger.In low traction conditions the front wheels lose traction first making steering ineffective.

ConclusionAfter given the background information about AWD cars, and the reasons why they are better than FWD and RWD cars
I hope that I was able to convince you to go for AWD.
