Fuel-Efficient AWD Winter Rides
When winter amps up and roads get swathed in rain, sleet, snow and ice, the benefits of all-wheel drive come into play. Luckily drivers don’t need big gas-guzzling SUVs or trucks to tackle wintry conditions — plenty of fuel-efficient options offer additional traction thanks to power at all four wheels. What follows are the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive models available in America that run on gasoline, electric and hybrid powertrains. Note that vehicles appear in ascending order by combined EPA fuel economy rating. MPGe is “miles per gallon equivalent,” which equates electric energy to that found in a gallon of gasoline — this figure is used for EVs (electric vehicles) and PHEVs (plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles). Prices listed are MSRP and don’t reflect additional options or EV tax credits.
