Cons: higher weight, more drivertrain loss, higher repair costs. Just needed to even the playing field haha. I think anyone who sees bad weather on a regular basis, awd is a great extra piece of mind. Anyone else, rwd all day and appropriate tires
I will be purchasing AWD and not just for snow but rain. When I started my search I was against AWD but wanting a vehicle with a little bit of power that I will be taking on road trips I thaugh AWD was the way to go. After a test drive in light rain with g80 awd and a test drive of another AWD car in pouring down rain with no slip I was convinced. I have had other semi performance and Rwd cars in the past.
I have taught about the more parts and repair cost but it does have a 10 year warranty. I have had a suv 4x4 for 18 years no repair cost.
As for performance, I am not going to the track and if it is .1 slower 0 to 60 oh well.
Then comes driving feel when I read disabling nannies 10front 90rear I was ok with that for spirited driving.
