10 Best All-Wheel-Drive Sedans Under $35,000 | Edmunds.com

When rain or snow is part of your everyday commute, you need a reasonably priced AWD sedan that will reliably get you where you're going.

    The definition of "10 Best" here seems to be, "Every sedan on the market that meets our price limit plus 2 that were close".

    Yeah this doesn't help at all.. Best should have something to do with the AWD system... what I would like to see is reliability or stats on the AWD system (mileage)

    I would like to see the best USED AWD sedans you can purchase for under 35K. Otherwise I would just get the BMW or the Audi.

    Nonsense, unless "best" means something like "shiniest radio" and not "best AWD." Only two of these cars (the Subarus) have mechanical AWD systems that can actually send power to one wheel when the others lose traction. The rest have anemic Haldex AWD systems that are virtually worthless in slippery conditions, because that's easy and cheap to produce, and they can technically advertise their cars.as "AWD" if just barely. That applies even to the Audi A3-- only the A4 and above have the splendid Torsen (torsion-sensing mechanical) system-- and Audi is just fooling people with their brand name in this low-end model. To see what real AWD can do relative to Haldex-fitted cars, check out the Subaru AWD videos on youtube (and note that their comparisons purposely did NOT include the Audi A4 :)) It would be great if Edmunds writers actually understood what "best AWD cars" means..

    worthless click bait
    Most true offroad-capable Jeep models fit the bill... albeit more SUV than sedan
    and avoid the Compass and Patriot 4 cylinder junk, V6 maybe OK.

    I'd add the Jeep Cherokee to the 4cyl junk list. I had a 2015 as a rental and all I can say is it was totally gutless. 2 ton truck with a 4-banger, go figure. Aside from the total lack of power it drove really well (no complaints about the brakes and the suspension and handling were easily up to par for an SUV) and I'm thinking the V6 version would be a nice ride.
