Best Bang Used AWD/FWD Sporty Sedan/Coupe under $30K?


My take on the suggestions so far (thank you very much by the way):Subaru STI - I drove a 2010 on the same day I drove a BMW 335xi,  all Infiniti G37 models, Legacy, and Hyundai Genesis Coupe.  I took the STI around the same roads and same freeway onramp I drive every day since the dealer was just one exit down the freeway from me.  My Volvo felt as fast if not faster but a hell of a lot smoother and quieter.  The STI felt like the differential was going to come blasting through the floor.  The interior made Hyundai's interior feel like an Infinity.  I hate the looks and the big wing on the previous generation.  The new was is okay, but I'd only get an STI if my driveway was a 10-mile dirt road up a hill.Subaru Legacy - Its a nice car, don't get me wrong, but not for me.  I drove both the 2010 Turbo and the 6-cyl models.  Major turbo lag.  No low-end torque. Tranny's (Auto and Manual) sucked.  Cheapo interiors.  But like I said not a bad car at the price point.  Just not my cup of tea.Ford Fusion - Only the 2010 Sport would fit the bill for me.  They made some nice changes.  This is THE sleeper of new cars in my opinion.  Decent styling, power, AWD.  The reviews are not bad.  But, it's a FORD.  I know, I know, Ford is the "good" brand for American Cars (unless you're buying a Corvette or a Camaro)  But I can tell you from my experience having owned 18 cars in 15 years, the resale on that Fusion will be crap (like my Volvo - sigh).  No way I'm buying a brand new Ford even if it is a lot of bang for the buck at about $30K.Sonata - Yes, the NEW one.  Decent looking, decent overall package.  I checked out the reviews.  Bottom line it is too tame for me.  I could settle for a 2009 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring, it has it all except crazy power, but even though I'm a big Hyundai fan after driving the Genesis coupe which had better steering feel th...

AWD Vehicles


You don't need a high-riding SUV or crossover to get the winter traction benefits of four-wheel drive. There are a myriad of sedans, wagons, coupes, and even convertibles that offer four-wheel drive (usually called all-wheel drive in passenger cars) either as standard or optional equipment. We've gathered up a complete list of AWD passenger cars; the list is long and the choices are many. Although the advantages of four driven wheels are obvious in slippery road conditions, the technology comes at a cost. There is usually a cost premium associated with all-wheel drive, and almost always a fuel economy penalty as well. So for each car listed, we've indicated the extra cost of the all-wheel-drive option, or the cost differential compared with the equivalent two-wheel-drive model, as well as its EPA gas mileage ratings, and the fuel economy penalty versus the two-wheel-drive version of the same car. ...next page >>

There’s nothing harder on a car than inclement weather. Sales of 4×4 and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicles spike when you get into the Snow Belt. Most of these vehicles are big, sturdy trucks with 17” and 18” tires, with treads so big that they’re often found lodged with bottle caps, large rocks, and old Volkswagen Beetles. But what about the people who want the security of AWD without the monstrosity of a truck? The people who prefer the speedy acceleration and feel of a 2-door coupe. Thankfully, auto makers have heeded the call. Here are the top AWD coupes from recent years.
Arguably the sportiest looking coupe on the road, it’s what’s under the hood that makes the Infiniti G a monster. The 3.7L V6 pumps out over 330 horses and will let youknow it when you touch the gas pedal. As with most pricy coupes, the list options is extremely impressive. That’s only if you can stop driving it long enough to play with everything inside. The body style allows for aerodynamics similar to what Porsche uses on the 911, only you’ll have more power and traction backing it up. It’s almost scary. Almost.
