Known for their agility and maneuverability, any of the cars on this list are excellent models for daily commuting or weekend road trips. With options ranging from athletic and sporty to perfectly practical and even all-out luxurious, you aren't limited when it comes to the type of AWD car you choose either.

The Fiat 500X is a practical crossover, featuring a turbocharged engine and a unique body design. The Dodge Charger is a great option if you're looking for an extra boost behind the wheel. This iconic muscle car delivers exceptional handling and thrilling dynamics in any season. The AWD option, which is available on the SXT trim on 2017–2019 models, adds to the excitement of this car.

However, if you are looking for a luxurious vehicle with AWD, the Hyundai Genesis and Lincoln MKZ are oozing with premium material options, along with eye-catching designs and impressive technology features. Need practicality? The Ford Taurus is a comfortable ride well-suited for families, while the Ford Fusion V6 Sport (2017–2019 models) includes standard AWD, just like the Subaru models on this list.
