Best All Wheel Drive Sedans 2020:
As evidenced by recent and planned changes to the product lineups of multiple automakers, Canadians are loving the heck out of all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicles these days, and car companies are quick to add this option to more and more cars in their lineups. In just the past few years, Volkswagen has given us an AWD version of the Golf Sportwagen, Nissan is launching a new Altima with standard AWD, and for the first time ever, the Mazda3 will soon hit dealers with AWD on the options list.
Today’s AWD systems are faster-acting, smarter, more compact and more effective than ever. Importantly, they also operate with less compromise to vehicle interior volume and fuel economy.

By and large, modern AWD systems live in the background and work to automatically enhance traction, without anything additional required of the driver.
Today’s automotive landscape and ever-demanding shopper mean that more and more of these worthy AWD options are available for less and less of your dollars than ever. These are seven of Canada’s best affordable options for AWD vehicles under $30,000.
The new Compass is better to look at, drive and interface with than it’s ever been—and it also packs fantastic on-road manners, above-average off-road chops, and small short of the market’s newest high-tech infotainment and safety features.
Selection abounds, and as a Jeep, Compass is backed in full by a wide range of accessories that allow fine-tuning to any need or taste. Go with the value-bundled Compass Sport 4×4, and you’ve got an automatic 4×4 system –which can be left to its own devices like the AWD system in any crossover—and a 2.4 litre capacity of engine.
A six-speed manual transmission is available from about $28,000, and with the 9-speed automatic, you’re still (just) under our $30,000 price limit.
Look for an impressive features list, 7 standard airbags, and more. Compass boasts on-road manners at or near the top of the segment, and similarly superior off-road capability, too. Also on offer is one of the best infotainment systems in the segment, for easy access to hundreds of infotainment and communications functions.
The Impreza is Canada’s most affordable AWD car, and features proven Subaru Symmetrical AWD as standard equipment on all units. Pricing starts from $19,995 with a manual transmission, and a Continually Variable Transmission (CVT) is available as well.
Order your Impreza as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatch to taste, and expect no fewer than a dozen individual models and equipment levels at your disposal to enhance selection. All of Impreza’s trim grades, other than the two highest, fall into our sub-$30,000 price limit. Translation? If you want AWD, but prefer to drive a small car, not a crossover, the Impreza has you covered off nicely.
A two-liter four-cylinder engine with 152 horsepower powers all models, and Impreza has earned some of the top safety ratings in the industry. As the industry’s leading AWD brand, Subaru also sells various versions of their WRX sports sedan, Legacy family sedan and various other models, with standard AWD, for under $30,000 as well.
If your bank account can handle parting ways with a few extra bucks, your options for affordable AWD expand considerably. Vehicles like the Ford Fusion, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and many others.
